Here's hoping that Maccagnan simply failed to listen to him, considering the drafts while he was around as senior director of college scouting were hardly awe-inspiring (2015 - 2017).

He has Hack on his record too (even if it was all Macc...)

Do we give him credit for Darius Leonard, Marlon Mack and Quinton Nelson too then?

Meh

All I know is that he was seemingly the only scout/personnel guy that Macc brought over who was actually praised by insiders on Twitter.

And at least Ballard seems to like him.

Guess the Bears blocked Champ Kelly or something.

The talk around the league when Ballard was hired was that all the guys he got to come with him were highly respected.  Just because a guy works for a crappy organization doesn't mean hes incompetent.  A number of people who have worked for the Jets are good at what they do.

Terry Bradway was NOT in this class of employee.

I certainly hope that's the more accurate evaluation.  I don't doubt there's a decent likelihood that Hogan was good and Mac was simply an incompetent idiot who failed to properly use his resources, but it's tough to ignore how bad the drafts were during his prior run here just to fit a narrative.

With the GM, Assistant GM, and Director of Player Personnel positions filled...I would assume that Savage would head the college scouting department if he’s hired here.

I would assume that Champ Kelly is not coming then.  He would have to get a promotion (from assistant director of player personnel currently) to leave the Bears, and it seems the major titles are all taken.

They had been talking about Champ Kelly as Assistant GM, so I am assuming he is not coming.

I believe he’s currently assistant director of pro personnel with the Bears, and if all these rumors are true we would still have the director of pro personnel position available, which would be a promotion for him

The move has been well received by the Breers, Schefter, Yates and other commentators of the sports world.   It is also an interesting move because there is no history between Douglas and Hogan I think (unlike the other members of his front office).   This could suggest Douglas bypassing a degree of comfort to just select the best possible person for the job, which is very good.

Hogan left in 2017, him coming back means he had issues with Maccagnan/Heimerdinger.
And as soon as they were gone he comes back, that can't be a coincidence

What was his title previously with the Jets? It could simply be that Indy offered him a promotion, and now the Jets are offering him another one.

 

If he made a lateral move to Indy then that a different story.

Yep, bet there is more money involved at each job change.

Well yes but you do not know if he actually touted Hack to Mac or tried to him. over road dissude him form the selection.  I seem to recall all reports said that Mac was smitten with Hack....

On paper, Chris is absolutely KILLING it in terms of building a front office executive staff

 

Yeah, but can he build a great front office executive staff on the field?  That's the real question!

I wonder if this means no Champ Kelly from the Bears..

 

Also, a big promotion for him.  he must have impressed during his time with Macc and the jets.  

I would think so since Kelly was mentioned as the possible assistant GM.
