Saints News, 3/20/15: Jeff Ireland’s Saints Job is Actually Assistant General Manager

New, comments

From PFT.com: When the Saints hired former Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland, it was right after they had fired college scouting director Rick Reiprish, so it seemed logical that was the one he was taking. But Ireland’s title with the Saints is a little different. According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, Ireland’s role is actually assistant General Manager, under G.M. Mickey Loomis. While it might be a slight difference, there’s a distinction there.
