New York Jets name Jeff Bauer new director of college scouting

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets have promoted Jeff Bauer to director of college scouting, filling the vacancy created when Joey Clinkscales left to become Oakland's director of player personnel.

The Jets also hired Kevin Kelly on Friday as an area scout after he served in the same role the last three seasons for Indianapolis.

Bauer is entering his 12th season with the Jets, and spent the last 11 seasons covering the Midwest as a scout. He was a high school and middle school football coach for 11 years before joining the Jets. Bauer played safety at Iowa State from 1987-90.

Kelly was an area scout for Cleveland from 2001-08.
