The New York Jets interviewed New Orleans Saints scouting director Terry Fontenot for their general manager position on Saturday.

Fontenot, 38, has been with the Saints for 16 years, the last six as director of pro scouting.

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

On Friday, the Jets met with Scott Fitterer, the Seattle Seahawks’ co-director of player personnel.

Other candidates expected to interview for the position include Philadelphia Eagles director of player personnel Joe Douglas and Chicago Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly. Douglas reportedly is scheduled to meet with the Jets on Sunday.
