Idzik Overhauls Front Office

New York Jets

Several sources are reporting that Jets GM John Idzik is continuing his shakeup of the front office.  This time Assistant General Manager Scott Cohen is the odd man out and he won’t have his contract renewed.

Manish Mehta also reported:

Director of Football Administration Ari Nissim, the team’s contract negotiator, also won’t return, according to a source.

Cohen, who spent time with the Redskins, Jaguars and Eagles before joining the Jets in 2008, interviewed for Gang Green’s G.M. vacancy before Woody Johnson hired Idzik.

Cohen follows JoJo Wooden, who left last week to become the Chargers Director of Player Personnel.

Idzik has also moved on from three scouts this offseason, including Mike Davis, who served as the organization’s longtime assistant scouting director.

As Slats pointed out in the JetNation Forums:

This offseason was for absorbing some pain, and laying a couple bricks for the foundation. Next year is the real makeover. Idzik needs to put his team in place now in preparation. Letting people go is a start, I guess, but I’m looking forward to hearing about who he’s bringing in.

Which leaves the question, can Terry Bradway be far behind?
