Strange timing indeed . . . Dan Leberfeld

It’s very common to make moves with people in the scouting department following the draft.

Often teams let scouts stay until the draft and then fire them.

But for a GM to help pick the new coach, run the draft, spend $120 million (in guarantees) of the owner’s money on free agents, and then get fired shortly after the draft, is very unusual.

Adam Gase won.

And a hat-tip to Mike Lombardi, Tony Pauline and Jason La Canfora for being ahead of the curve on this story.
