Report: Mike Tannenbaum likely to lose Jets GM job Monday
The Jets will relieve Mike Tannenbaum of his general manager duties Monday, according to a league source in a CBSSports.com report.
Team owner Woody Johnson reportedly will either fire Tannenbaum or reassign him within the organization.
Tannenbaum has been under fire since last year’s disappointing 8-8 finish and throughout this season’s 6-9 campaign. Several of his personnel moves, including the high-profile trade for quarterback Tim Tebow, have been widely criticized.
The Jets hired Tannenbaum as director of player contract negotiations in 1997. He was promoted to general manager in 2006. The Jets have qualified for the playoffs in just three of his seven seasons as general manager, appearing in the 2006 wild card game, and 2009 and 2010 AFC Championship Games.
