Reports: Director of college scouting Jon Robinson leaving Patriots
|05.14.14 at 1:58 pm ET|
Multiple reports now indicate that Patriots college scouting director Jon Robinson will be leaving New England for a front office job with the Bucs.
In Tampa, Robinson will be reunited with Jason Licht — the two worked together for a stretch with the Patriots before Licht was named Bucs GM earlier this year. Sirius XM NFL reporter Adam Caplan quotes a league source, who said Robinson will serve as the Buccaneers‘ director of player personnel, involved in both college and pro scouting.
Robinson had been with the Patriots since 2002 when he was an area scout. In 2006, he moved up the ladder, becoming regional scout. He was named assistant director of college scouting in 2008 before becoming director of college scouting in 2009.
