The Carolina Panthers have shuffled their scouting department in the wake of Brandon Beane’s exit to Buffalo.

The moves mean a lot of new titles, but keep the stability that general manager Dave Gettleman has sought since arriving in Charlotte four years ago. The team is not expected to fill Beane’s assistant GM spot.

Mark Koncz, the team’s longtime pro scouting director, has been named the director of player personnel and will have responsibilities with both the college and pro divisions.

Veteran scout Jeff Morrow is the new college scouting director, while former pro scout Matt Allen was promoted to director of pro personnel.

Don Gregory, who has held a variety of positions and was the college scouting director for a decade, will serve as a senior executive scout and will work on both the pro and college sides.

Jonathan Fields shifts from an assistant college scouting role to an assistant pro scouting position, while Eli Montague becomes an area scout.

“You are always looking to improve your scouting operation,” Gettleman said. “We made some moves after taking a look at everything. I feel really good about our personnel group, both pro and college. We feel this strengthens us even further.”
