According to CBS Sports via ESPN.com, New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum will be fired on Monday.
Citing a league source, the report says Tannenbaum will be fired as soon as Monday and the Jets will enlist an executive search firm for a replacement.
A Jets spokesperson declined to comment on the report. Coach Rex Ryan is scheduled to conduct a press conference at 4:45 p.m. Monday, and although the general manager usually speaks, Tannenbaum is not on the team’s media itinerary.
This is not a surprise at all and it’s something that really needs to happen. Tannenbaum is not a good general manager and it’s time for him to move on.
