The New York Jets interviewed Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas for their general manager position on Sunday.

Douglas joined the Eagles in May 2016 and helped to build the roster that defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4, 2018.

Douglas previously worked with Jets head coach Adam Gase in Chicago during the 2015 season, with Gase serving as the Bears’ offensive coordinator and Douglas as director of college scouting.

The Jets are interviewing candidates to replace Mike Maccagnan, who was fired on May 15 after four seasons in the role.

The team met Friday with Scott Fitterer, the Seattle Seahawks’ co-director of player personnel, and met on Saturday with Terry Fontenot, the New Orleans Saints’ director of pro scouting.

Chicago Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly is also expected to interview for the job.
