Jets' Mike Maccagnan turns to familiar face to fill college scouting director vacancy

The Jets just lost their college scouting director, Matt Bazirgan, to the Texans. Bazirgan will be Houston's director of player personnel.

Now, the Texans' ex-college scouting director, Jon Carr, is coming to the Jets, to take that same job, filling the the vacancy left by Bazirgan's departure, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans revamped their front office under new general manager Brian Gaine, a former Jets scout. Gaine hired Patriots national scout James Liipfert to be his college scouting director, which meant Carr was out of a job.

He quickly found a landing spot with the Jets, who are on their third college scouting director in as many years.
