NEW YORK – The Jets have begun the process of replacing Mike Tannenbaum as the team's general manager, with Atlanta's David Caldwell and San Francisco's Tom Gamble among the first group of interviews.
Caldwell, the Falcons' director of player personnel, was scheduled to meet with the Jets on Friday, while Gamble, the 49ers' director of player personnel, and former Cleveland GM Tom Heckert are reportedly set to sit down with the team Saturday.
Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross and Green Bay director of football operations John Dorsey are also expected to interview for the job. Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen has also been mentioned as a candidate.
Tannenbaum was fired Monday, following a 6-10 finish, after seven seasons as the team's general manager.
