The Cleveland Browns announced on Wednesday that they have hired two people from the Eagles personnel staff in Director of Player Personnel Jon Sandusky and Personnel Executive John Spytek. Both Sandusky and Spytek worked in Philadelphia with former general manager Tom Heckert, who was named the Browns' new general manager last week. The Eagles have not named a new general manager nor have they named replacements for Sandusky or Spytek.
Sandusky spent the previous nine seasons with the Eagles, with the last two as Director of Pro Personnel. He spent his first six seasons with the club as a pro scout after joining the Eagles as an intern in the personnel department in 2001. A native of State College, Pa., Sandusky was a safety for Penn State from 1996-99. He is the son of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Spytek spent the previous five seasons with the Eagles, including the last three as a college/pro scout. He spent the 2006 season as Philadelphia's college scouting assistant and 2005 as an intern in the pro personnel department.
