Report: Texans promote Tom Hayden to director of scouting operations
The Houston Texans are adjusting their personnel and scouting department.
According to Aaron Wilson from KPRC-TV, the Texans promoted Tom Hayden, their college scouting coordinator, to be their director of scouting operations.
General manager Nick Caserio mentioned on Feb. 28 at the NFL combine in Indianapolis that Hayden was part of a group of scouts that had “done a lot of the heavy lifting” to get the organization prepared to evaluate and collect information at the week-long event in early March.
The former University of Pennsylvania fullback joined the Texans in 2018 to replace ex-college scouting coordinator Matt Jansen. Hayden worked with general manager Brian Gaine and coach Bill O’Brien to produce the 2019 draft class.
Prior to working for the Texans, Hayden had an internship with Morgan Stanley and was also a scouting assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles.
