The Jets front office has undergone a shake-up.

In a surprising move, assistant general manager Rex Hogan and the Jets agreed to mutually part ways weeks ago, according to multiple league sources.

Hogan had worked closely with general manager Joe Douglas since 2019 and was heavily involved with the NFL Draft. Hogan oversaw the college and pro scouting departments and also had input on personnel decisions and did player evaluations.

He was in his second stint with the Jets. Hogan originally was hired in 2015 and spent two years as the Jets’ senior director of college scouting. He was the Colts’ vice president of player personnel for two seasons before returning to the Jets.

Hogan is respected in the NFL and it’s unclear where he will go next or if he already has another job lined up.

This is a critical offseason for the Jets’ decision makers to assemble a team that not only makes the playoffs in 2024 but can make a run in the postseason. If not, the Jets’ front office and coaching staff could undergo a major facelift next offseason.

The Jets went 7-10 for the second consecutive season and missed the playoffs for the 13th straight time. More was expected after they acquired Aaron Rodgers. He tore his left Achilles four snaps into the season and the Jets' offense struggled mightily.

Owner Woody Johnson has stated that Douglas, coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett would be given another year in the wake of Rodgers’ injury. The Jets had one of the worst offenses in the league, finishing last in scoring and 30th out of 32 teams in total offense.

Saleh has made some changes to the offensive coaching staff. The Jets are hiring Tony Dews to be their running backs coach and Shawn Jefferson as wide receivers coach.
