Former Bates College quarterback Matt Bazirgan was recently named the new College Scouting Director of the New York Jets.

The news of Bazigran’s new gig was confirmed today, Friday, July 28th by multiple reports, including Jets Wire of the USA Today

Bazigran began working for the Jets in 2004 as a College Scout Assistant, and spent the past two seasons as the organization’s Director of Pro Personnel. Bazigran replaces Rex Hogan, who accepted a front office position with the Indianapolis Colts last month.

A former quarterback (and intern coach) for the Bobcats, Bazigran, who concluded his senior year with eight touchdown passes, graduated from Bates in 2000. He would earn his Masters in Sports Management from Springfield College in 2004.

NFL 2012: AFC East Preview

By Matt Noonan 

The AFC East may not be the flashiest division this season, but don’t underestimate Buffalo, New York or Miami. All three teams have challenged the Patriots over the past few seasons, and can certainly provide the unnecessary head ache to Patriots coaches, fans and players, especially when they least expect it.

However, New England shouldn’t have a problem winning this division, but keep your eyes on the Bills and Jets.

1.) New England Patriots (12-4) – Some analysts believe this team may mimic their record-breaking performance from 2007, while others think they’re a shoe-in for this year’s Super Bowl. In order for the Patriots to be successful, they’ll need rookies Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower to pressure opposing quarterbacks and provide all sorts of havoc.

2.) Buffalo Bills (9-7) – The Bills bolted out of the gate last season, but couldn’t maintain their momentum, as injuries and errors derailed their chances of a successful season. This year, Buffalo added Mario Williams and Mark Anderson to their defense, and drafted two potential studs in Cordy Glenn and Stephon Gilmore. The usual cast is back on offense – Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fred Jackson and Steve Johnson, but the main question from last year remains: Can they stay healthy? Also, can they be consistent, too?

3.) New York Jets (7-9) – No offense Jets fans, but your team is in complete disarray. New York didn’t locate the end zone until their fourth preseason game, and there’s still questions surrounding their offense and defense. Yet, probably one of the biggest sagas surrounding this team is when will Rex Ryan swap Tim Tebow for Mark Sanchez?

4.) Miami Dolphins (5-11) – There will be a lot of ups and downs this season for the Dolphins, but expect Miami to conclude their year with at least four or five wins.

It’s Thursday, which means we’re one day away from the weekend, so let’s buckle down and get some work done! Also, we’ll jumpstart the day with headlines and news, too!

* The Boston Celtics eared their third consecutive win on Wednesday when they defeated the Utah Jazz, 94-82. Kevin Garnett paced the Green and White with 23 points and 10 rebounds, while Paul Pierce tallied 20 points. Boston’s win set-up a two-way tie atop the Atlantic division with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Green and White will return to the hardwood on Friday when they travel to Minnesota.

* The Boston Bruins will look to earn their 46th win of the season on Thursday when they host the Washington Capitals. The Capitals are currently locked in the ninth spot, and certainly need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. However, Boston remains the second best team in the Eastern Conference, and is on par to wrap up the Northeast division.

* According to sources – Chris Carpenter, who came to Boston via Chicago as compensation for Theo Epstein, is expected to have surgery to remove a bone spur from his throwing elbow.

* Finally, New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis called New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a “jerk” on Wednesday on SportsCenter.
