Mike Maccagnan, in a statement: "I appreciate their contributions to the organization and wish them the best in the future."

Pretty tough for scouts and personnel guys in that situation.  You know you have a good chance of getting the axe and yet still have to do your job for months.

My guess is they knew it was coming - it was likely discussed well before that they would be asked to get through the draft and they would move on.

Soon after Mike Maccagnan was hired, the team let Terry Bradway and Jeff Bauer go. One of Maccagnan's stated goals was to remake the scouting department in his image, as he felt the team did not dedicate sufficient resources to it. Today, we have some news from Brian Costello:

It isn't clear if there are remaining holdovers from the old regime, or the past ten years, but it's clear the entire department has seen a makeover. This is what's more typical; to wait until after the draft to fire the scouting department, and Bradway/Bauer were the exception. But now, essentially everyone is gone, and Maccagnan is free to bring in his guys. I don't want to gloat, since a number of I'm sure good people just lost their job, but it will be interesting to see what Maccagnan does next.

Idzik did make changes. Didn't clean house but he did let go off some scouts and hired new scouts.

Watch around the NFL this week as other teams with new GMs follow suit.

True, but his changes were cosmetic. Like moving into a house in need of rebuilding and slapping paint on it. Mac is gutting the house and doing a full remodel. I love it!

@DWAZ73: #Jets fire dir. of pro personnel Brendan Prophett and 5 scouts (as @BrianCoz reported). Was told this was not a surprise to those involved.

I wrote this in December about the #Jets convoluted mess of a FO. It has now been cleaned out in one off-season: http://turnonthejets.com/2014/12/new-york-jets-house-broken-not-divided/

@SethWalderNYDN: Prophett had been with the Jets since 2000. Courtright, Hinson, Prescott and Turner were hired by John Idzik. #nyj

#Jets hierarchy now fully fleshed out: Maccagnan. Hogan. Heimerdinger on player personnel. Graves, Davidson on contracts.

Weird that they knew it was coming and it was done after the draft.  How much involvement did they have leading up to this draft?  If I told a scout that I was going to fire them right after the draft then I would not trust anything out of their mouths.

Looks like Macagnan reached a gentle men's agreement that they would have their jobs and leave after the '15 draft. Macagnan didn't have enough time to bring his own crew in for this year.

Probably because they could assemble and compile data on the prospects for this year. We can only hope they weren't asked for their opinions.

All scouts hired by the accountant had to go. Good.

It's not like that. This is the field these men chose, and they knew going in that they'd be hired and fired based on the whims of new hires above them. If they purposely did anything to sabotage the Jets' draft, they'd be blackballed from ever getting hired again. Everyone did the best job they could on their way to their next job.

They probably had incentive to work because this draft would be part of their future resume

At least that seems logical to me

I doubt they were specifically told as individuals that they were going to be fired.  A guy like Prophett has survived several FO shake ups.   I'm sure they were aware there were going to be big changes, but were also told to "give me a reason to keep you around".

 

It is more common to fire scouting staffs after the draft then before.  Just to much change in a very busy time.

SOP within NFL scouting. Maccagnan couldn't get scouts he wanted since they most likely had contracts with other NFL teams. Another team isn't going to let a scout leave when there is still 5 months of work to do leading up with o the draft.

Let's not go crazy. I'm sure Mccagnan had a very good opinion on players based on all his work from last year with Houston.

Cole Hufnagel. Great name.

Probably the son of John Hufnagel, current coach and GM of the Calgary Stampeders and past NFL coach.

Which accountant, Tanny or Idz... nevermind, BOTH!
