    Idzik makes changes to Jets' scouting dept.

    @BrianCoz: Idzik makes changes to Jets' scouting dept. #nyj: http://t.co/h1huD9ndK8 via @nypost

    New Jets general manager John Idzik has begun making some changes to the scouting department now that the NFL Draft is over.

    The Jets will not renew the contracts of assistant director of college scouting Michael Davis and area scout Joe Bommarito, according to multiple sources.

    Davis had been with the Jets for 16 years, the last five as assistant director of college scouting. He is also responsible for scouting the Southeast, including SEC and ACC schools.

    Bommarito had been with the Jets for 12 years and was responsible for the West Coast.

    The two technically still work for the Jets until the end of the month when their contracts will expire.

    These are the first changes to the scouting department Idzik has made since he was hired in January. Typically, teams wait until after the draft to make these kinds of changes.

    Wait, he did it at the right time? Like most teams? So... no circus?

    I can't believe this was published.

    @ConorTOrr: Hearing that many there are on edge, which obviously comes with a regime change. Tough situation. #nyj

    Those scouts are getting scapegoated, while Terry Bradway will survive again.

    We had a good draft. It makes sense to get rid of everybody now. Jets football.

    It's the NFL norm.

    Caldwell waited until after the draft to make changes in the Jaguar scouting department. It's what all new GMs do.


    But, let's make a big mountain out of this molehill...

    Overruled. Fans need to know about the intricacies; I'll allow the grappling.

    @ConorTOrr: #Jets begin shakeup in front office, letting two go from the scouting department | http://t.co/y46sJoR981

    It appears John Idzik is starting to shake things up in the front office.

    The team has let go of assistant director of college scouting, Mark Davis, as well as area scout Joe Bommarito, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed. The person requested anonymity because the details of any move have not been made public by the team.

    The New York Post first reported the dismissal of both scouts.

    The change reflects an unsettling time for holdovers from the Mike Tannenbaum regime, according to one person with knowledge of the situation who requested anonymity to speak candidly. As expected with any general manager change, new people will be brought in and familiar faces will be dismissed.

    It is one of the reasons that assistant general manager Scott Cohen was one of a few candidates the holdover staff was pulling for during the team's search for a new general manager in January, the person said. In that scenario, less change was expected.

    The timing for a move makes sense, though, as it was unlikely for Idzik to get rid of staff members upon his arrival. At that point, Draft preparation was well underway and the team had spent an entire collegiate season ranking and grading prospects.

    In many cases around the league, scouting contracts begin May 1 and end April 30, although it is unclear whether or not this was the deal in place with Davis or Bommarito.

    Now, Idzik will start to put his own mark on the department.

    Davis, who scouted the southeast for the Jets, was most recently involved with Geno Smith and spoke to reporters about the process a day after Smith was selected with the Jets' No. 39 overall pick.

    Bommarito was a west coast scout for the team.

    Idzik did not give any prior indication that he was looking to bring in new staff. At the team's pre-Draft press conference, senior personnel executive Terry Bradway said one of Idzik's strong points was respecting the work that has already been done by the scouts and executives in place.

    "I think the thing that has been impressive with John is that he has respected our process of the evaluation in the fall, the all-star games, the cross checks, the February meeting, the combine and so forth," Bradway said. "It is hard in midstream to change all of that. But he has been able to add a lot to that also. We are excited about that. Anytime you have change, I think you get invigorated. We are excited about what we are doing."

    It is unclear how sweeping those changes will be.

    None of these scouts were Idzik's. Couldn't do it before draft, so now is time to not renew their contracts.

    I thought he was a puppet with no control?

    Notice how it was a west coast area scout that was not renewed? Dude probably promoted Sanchez as a franchise QB and worthy of a top 5 pick. Thank god that douche got the boot.

    Firing the southern and western scouts is like the assistant manager of Dairy Queen firing his summer help on Memorial Day.

    The other scout was scouting Geno Smith, so what does that say?
