Earlier this month GM Mike Maccagnan fired five scouts and Brendan Prophett, who served as the head of the organizations pro personnel department for nine seasons.
Bazirgan has worked within the Jets organization since 2004. He served as an area scout for eight years before becoming the assistant pro personnel director in 2013.
In addition to Bazirgan's promotion, the Jets announced lots of additional scouting assignments.
Xavier Adibi (Plains), Bill Dekraker (Northeast), Dom Green (Southwest), and Brian Shields (West Coast) were all named Area Scouts.
Both Jay Mandelosi (Southeast) and Johnathon Stigall (Midwest) will remain with the team as Area Scouts.
Lee Gissendaner (East Coast), Jim Jauch (West Coast), and Zach Truty (Central) were all hired as National Scouts.
One would suppose that Maccagnan's deep ties in the scouting community from his time with the Houston and Washington have allowed him to get to know some scouts who he likes and wanted to come work for him. Having cleared out most of his scouting staff last month, Maccagnan has been filling out his scouting department and seems to have done a good job.
Adibi might be a recognizable name due to his recent NFL career. Adibi played at UVA before being drafting in the fourth round by the Texans in 2008 and played on a few teams before most recently scouting for the Chiefs. Maccagnan would know him well from their shared time in Houston. Shields is another name that people seem to say is a young talented scout and will reunite with Brian Heimerdinger in New York. Shields is a Princeton graduate who worked in various capacities before being named an area scout two years ago by Les Snead.
