FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey — New York Jets coach Todd Bowles has filled three vacancies on his staff, including promoting John Scott Jr. from defensive quality control coach to assistant defensive line coach.

The team also announced Tuesday that it has hired David Diaz-Infante as assistant offensive line coach, and Tim Atkins as Scott's replacement as defensive quality control coach.

Scott, a longtime college assistant, was hired last year by Bowles after he took over as head coach. Scott played defensive end at Western Carolina and also spent two seasons in arenafootball2.

Diaz-Infante is a former NFL offensive lineman who worked as an offensive assistant with Arizona, where he and Bowles served on Bruce Arians' staff.

Atkins had been a football operations assistant with Buffalo since 2011.
