Just three days after the Jaguars elected to part ways with several higher-ups in the front office, new general manager Dave Caldwell quickly re-built the personnel department, as the team announced some moves, including the hiring of former-Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Polian.
Chris Polian, son of former-NFL Executive of the Year, Bill Polian, served as the vice president and general manager of the Colts for three seasons before he was fired after the 2011 season. He spent the 2012 season as an executive scout for the Atlanta Falcons. Polian will serve as the director of pro personnel for the Jaguars.
Andy Dengler was promoted within the organization after spending two seasons as the director of college personnel and now holds the title of assistant director of player personnel.
Rounding out the moves are the hiring of Kyle O'Brien, a former-regional scout with the Chiefs, as director of college scouting; Paul Roell, a former-regional scout with the Vikings, as assistant director of college scouting; and Mark Ellenz, a former-area scout with the Colts, as the eastern regional scout.
The Jaguars did not announce a new director of player personnel, but Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Caldwell could take on the role, himself.
