Heckert Fires Four in the Scouting Department

Seems that new general manager Tom Heckert isn’t waiting to long to make changes, as he has already fired four members of the staff. Heckert dismissed the pro personnel group Thursday, spokesman Neal Gulkis said. The department was headed by senior director Steve Sabo, who had been with the Browns since 1998. Keith O’Quinn, Jim Jauch and James Kirkland were also let go.

Sabo was responsible for scouting NFL teams and assisted with advance game scouting. Pro personnel director O’Quinn spent one year with the Browns after coming over from the Dallas Cowboys. Jauch, associate director of college and pro personnel, spent six seasons in Cleveland, and assistant director Kirkland joined the Browns in 2004.

Heckert, Philadelphia’s former GM, is expected to bring in his own people to oversee pro personnel and scouting.
