Good thing he wasn’t needed to make all of those personnel moves before, right? According to Jeff McLane, the Eagles are getting ready to hire Bears director of college scouting Joe Douglas as their new personnel head, barring any huge setback.
Douglas would report to Howie Roseman and “head the eagles scouting department,” so they definitely didn’t need him in the draft, when they were trading for picks, or anything like that. Here’s a bit of his resume:
Douglas has been with the Bears for just one year. He was hired away from the Ravens, for whom he was a national scout, last offseason. He worked in Baltimore for 15 years under Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. Before becoming a national evaluator, he scouted the Southeast and the East Coast.
The more minds the better. That part I get. But this guy isn’t really a “personnel head” as much as he’s a guy who answers to Howie, who is really the head of personnel. Bringing more, smart people aboard is always a good thing, but this just looks, once again, like Jeffrey Lurie handled everything from Chip’s dismissal to now totally haphazardly.
