The Denver Broncos have hired John Spytek as a Southwest area college scout, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced on Monday.
Spytek, who owns eight seasons of personnel experience in the NFL, spent five years with the Philadelphia Eagles (2005-09) before being hired by the Cleveland Browns to oversee their college scouting efforts from 2010-12.
During his three seasons as Cleveland’s director of college scouting, the Browns produced six PFW/PFWA All-Rookie Team selections.
He served as a college/pro scout for the Eagles from 2007-09 after starting his personnel career as an intern with Philadelphia in 2005 and a full-time college scouting assistant in 2006. In his five seasons with the club, the Eagles earned three postseason berths and advanced to the NFC Championship game in 2008.
Spytek got his start in the NFL as an operations intern with Detroit in 2004 after playing linebacker for the University of Michigan from 2000-02. He graduated from Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in general studies and a master’s degree in sports management.
