Joey Clinkscales Named Oakland Raiders' Director Of Personnel, According To Report

Former New York Jets vice president of college scouting Joey Clinkscales has been named the Director of Personnel for the Oakland Raiders and will be in charge of all pro and college operations for his new team, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Clinkscales spent 17 seasons with the Jets, and was in charge of their NFL Draft decisions for the past five. The Jets reportedly wanted to keep him around for the future despite a couple shaky drafts in the recent past, but he is close friends with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie and will also receive a promotion in Oakland.

Clinkscales interviewed for the St. Louis Rams' general manager opening earlier during the 2012 NFL offseason.
