Jags Name GM

The Jacksonville Jaguars named Gene Smith their general manager today.

Smith had been promoted from executive director of college and pro personnel to vice president of player personnel when veteran executive James (Shack) Harris resigned from that job last month.

"The changes we are making will bring greater clarity in responsibilities, with Gene Smith having final say in personnel decisions and Jack Del Rio having final say in all coaching decisions," Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver said in a written statement. "Gene has been given greater and greater responsibility with this organization, and I am confident that in this new role he will be successful in directing our football operation."
