Aaron Glenn Leaving Jets To Coach With The Cleveland Browns

It looks as though the Jets former first round selection is leaving his scouting spectacles behind to take up coaching in Cleveland

Aaron Glenn who was area scout for the Jets 2nd round selection (Jace Amaro) in the 2014 NFL draft is leaving to take up coaching in Cleveland:

Aaron Glenn was the 12th overall pick in the 1994 NFL draft for the Jets. He played for the organization from 1994-2001. He went to the Pro-Bowl as a Jet in back-to-back seasons in 1997 and 1998. He ended his career having played in 205 games, recording 638 tackles and 41 interceptions. Having played with the Texans from 2002-2004 after being selected in the expansion draft, he signed a one day contract in 2010 to retire a Texan. I always thought he should have retired a Jet.

As recently as 2012, Glenn was the general manager of the Houston Stallions of the Texas lone star football league, however in June  of 2012, he was hired by the Jets as a personnel scout and went on to be an area scout based around Texas. Not only was he responsible for scouting Amaro for the Jets, he also spent a lot of time with Brandon Dixon, the Jets 6th round selection.

Aaron will make his first foray into coaching with Cleveland, a team now led by head coach and former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. I wish Glenn all the best of luck as he starts his coaching career and I hope we see him back with the Jets at some point in the future.
