Mark Eckel says Jason Licht, Eagles VP of player personnel has been fired.
Jason Licht, once thought of as a poten tial general manager candidate for the Eagles, has been fired by the team, The Times has learned.
Licht, the team's former Vice President of Player Personnel, was told the week before the draft "to start looking for another job" by head coach Andy Reid, according to a source close to Licht.
"He was floored by that," the source said.
He was fired shortly after last month's draft.
The Eagles had no comment on the situation, but did not deny that Licht had been fired. According to another source, the team wanted Licht to find another job before it announced that he had left.
As of now, Licht is still listed as the team's VP of player personnel on the Eagles website. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this one.
