There has been a feeling around Florham Park that the Jets’ personnel department has gotten too comfortable. How do I mean? Almost the same people believe that Sanchez didn’t feel he could lose his job, same for these guys. Well, John Idzik is making sure that his front office stays on its toes.

Reports this morning are out and have been confirmed that Scott Cohen is out as assistant GM with the Jets. He had obviously been Tannenbaum’s right hand man, and was one of the finalists for the GM job. No surprise here, John Idzik needs to turn the group over and bring his own people in. You don’t keep the previous guy’s assistant.

Ari Nissim is also out, the director of football administration. Nissim was hand-picked by Tannenbaum for his position. Neither of the two guys mentioned are having their contracts renewed, so they are out in New York.

I don’t think anyone is upset over a front office overhaul. Needed is probably not a strong enough word to describe it.

    i have no problem with front office turnover. my only concern is this: idzik talked up his scouts and the front office structure before the draft and before letting a few of them go. he also has talked up rex. i hope talking up rex was not lip service. i hope the job is rex’s to lose rather than he is just keeping the set warm.

      You have to wonder if this isn’t beginning the writing on the wall for Rex and the gang.

        Rex has two years left on his contract and a really young defense that he could mold into something special I think they will let him play out his contract and then look at his overall body of work. I hope he stay in NY, he might not know how to build a team but he sure can coach one and that’s his job being a coach.

        • TheJetPress

          No argument there Dustin. I love Rex and hope he is here long term.
