The Jets are bringing back Texans director of college scouting Mike Maccagnan for a second GM interview, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports citing league sources. He is the first candidate to receive a second interview.
He has ties to Charley Casserly, the consultant assisting owner Woody Johnson in the head coach and GM search along with Ron Wolf, that go way back, according to Dom Cosentino of the Newark Star-Ledger.
When Casserly was the general manager in Washington in 1994, he hired Maccagnan as a scout. And in 2000, as the Texans were preparing to get their start as an an expansion franchise two years later, Casserly, as their GM, brought Maccagnan in as a pro scout before quickly promoting him to coordinator of college scouting.
Maccagnan became the Texans’ assistant director of college scouting in June 2010 before being elevated to his current post 13 months later.
