Saints assistant head coach and tight ends coach Dan Campbell played for a long time in the NFL and was the interim head coach of the Dolphins in 2015.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — With Todd Bowles’ ouster seemingly inevitable, ” the nyc Jets is likely to soon be in the market to get a head coach for its second time in just four years. It’s a difficult gig, since the team’s last 1-3 full time coaches failed to reach the superbowl.
The ideal candidate is an offensive-minded coach with strong leadership abilities and also a lively presence that can eradicate the losing mindset which has enveloped the organization. The offensive background is preferable as a result of quarterback Sam Darnold, whose development is paramount to this franchise.
Anybody understand a coach that way?
The fact remains , there’s no ideal offender, therefore Jets CEO Christopher Johnson and general manager Mike Maccagnan — more likely to survive will want to perform their homework, trying to unearth the following Sean McVay. Let’s break down the Prospective candidates:
Telephone these guys… today
Mike McCarthy, former Green Bay Packers head coach: He assesses many of the boxes and must be on the Jets’ shortlist. Things went during his final two seasons in Green Bay, but we’re talking about a brilliant Bowl-winning coach using a 125-77-2 record and eight playoff appearances in 1-3 years. His relationship with Aaron Rodgers went sour, however, the possibility of dealing together with a new quarterback could overtake him. His game-management skills are contested.
Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma Sooners head coach: He’s the hot college name as a result of his standing as an offensive whiz. Under his leadership, the Sooners created Backtoback Heisman Trophy winners in Baker Mayfield along with Kyler Murray. He’d be ideal for Darnold, but could Riley lead an entire NFL team? Can he handle that the New York market?
Ought to Be around the meeting listing
Matt LaFleur, Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator: He’s attractive because he’s ties to the La Rams‘ McVay and the San Francisco 49ers‘ Kyle Shanahan, two of the top young offensive minds in the NFL. LaFleur isn’t exactly light it up in Nashville — that the Titans have scored fewer points than the Jets — he was coping with a banged-up Marcus Mariota in recent weeks.
Bieniemy doesn’t call the drama Reid does but he has a worthy part in the Chiefs’ high-profile crime.
Dan Campbell, New Orleans Saints tight ends coach: He could be a darkhorse. Campbell is a Bill Parcells protégé, a tough guy who works under the best offensive mind from the group, Sean Payton. He moved 5-7 since the Dolphins’ interim coach in 2015, therefore he’s head-coaching encounter. Campbell commands a room, which is important.
Zac Taylor, La Rams quarterbacks coach: Because of the Rams’ achievement, everyone needs a branch from the McVay coaching tree. Taylor, 3-5, doesn’t call plays to the Rams, although he achieved it for part of their 2015 season with the Dolphins under Campbell. His lack of experience is still a concern.
John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens head coach: The Ravens announced that they’re negotiating an extension for Harbaugh, who’s signed by 2019,” but it doesn’t mean he’s sticking around long haul. Peter King of NBC Sports reported there is a”real chance” that Harbaugh won’t sign the extension. Could he coach out the contract and become a free agent or this is where it gets interesting — will the Ravens try to exchange for compensation? Harbaugh has the personality and résumé (just one superbowl ring) to alter the Jets, but they’d need to surrender a draft pick (or picks) to get him.
Josh McDaniels,” New England Patriots offensive manager: The Jets hired off a chip from the’ol Bill Belichick block once earlier (Eric Mangini), and it didn’t work out. McDaniels is an intelligent offensive coach, but he would be disowned by the family when he left the Patriots to the Jets.
John DeFilippo, former Minnesota Vikings offensive manager: He would have been a good deal higher to the list when he hadn’t been terminated recently following an undercover conduct in Minneapolis. Before that, he was considered a rising star with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was the Jets’ assistant quarterbacks coach in 2008, the Brett Favre season.
Been there, done that
Jim Harbaugh, Michigan Wolverines head coach: The Jets released a statement, saying they have no interest in Harbaugh. It came in reaction to a Guru Football Chat report that said they were intending to pursue him. Here’s what happened: The Jets assessed to Harbaugh — why would they? — and decided that he was staying in Ann Arbor.
