Clinkscales had been the Jets’ VP of college scouting for the past four seasons, and had been in the Jets’ scouting department for the last 17 years.
At the time, Clinkscales was defiant about his commitment to the Jets.
“I expect to be here,” Clinkscales said. “I understand where the connection comes in, to be honest with you. Reggie and I have played high school and college ball together. We were in each other’s weddings. I’ve known Reggie forever. But this is where I started, and this is where I plan on being.”
Evidently, Clinkscales has had a change of heart and will join McKenzie in Oakland after all.
I wish him well on his future endeavors, and hopefully his final draft class with the Jets will be a great one.
