New coach Adam Gase provided no comment when asked if Gregg Williams will be the Jets' defensive coordinator at Monday's introductory press conference.

Williams is believed to be weighing the seven head-coaching job offers he received via snail mail over the past two weeks.
Jan 14 - 4:11 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets are "on the verge" of hiring Gregg Williams as their defensive coordinator.

The Browns sent Williams packing earlier this week, though obviously it didn't take him long to resurface. The Jets had also considered Vance Joseph (who was just hired by Arizona) and Chuck Pagano for their defensive coordinator opening. Williams can rub people the wrong way with his colorful personality, though we have to admit, the 60-year-old did a phenomenal job in his short stint as Cleveland's interim head coach, going 5-3 after Hue Jackson's midseason firing. He'll captain the defense in East Rutherford with new coach Adam Gase taking on the bulk of New York's offensive responsibilities.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports ex-Colts coach Chuck Pagano is in the running for the Jets' defensive coordinator position.

Ex-Browns coach Gregg Williams and ex-Broncos coach Vance Joseph have also been linked with the job. Joseph would seem to be the favorite given his history with Adam Gase, but perhaps the team decides to go in another direction. A long-time coach with head coaching experience, Pagano could be appealing to teams who decided to go with a young offensive mind at head coach.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports ex-Browns coach Gregg Williams is a candidate for the Jets' defensive coordinator opening.

To hear Williams tell it, he has already received six job offers and a marriage proposal from the Princess of Luxembourg, but this interest actually seems legitimate. MMQB's Albert Breer reports ex-Broncos coach Vance Joseph and ex-Colts coach Chuck Pagano are also in the running.
Jan 10 - 9:28 AM's Ian Rapoport reports ex-Broncos coach Vance Joseph is a "strong possibility" to serve as new Jets coach Adam Gase's defensive coordinator.

Rapsheet also reports Joseph is "still in the mix" for the Bengals' head-coaching job. Unceremoniously fired by the Dolphins, Gase is nevertheless preparing to double down on his Dolphins staff with Gang Green, with OC Dowell Loggains also rumored to be making the move north to Florham Park. While Loggains is as uninspiring as they come, Joseph would be a perfectly fine choice as defensive coordinator.
Jan 9 - 10:35 PM

Ex-Packers coach Mike McCarthy will not coach in 2019.

McCarthy was only interested in the Jets' job, and that went to Adam Gase on Wednesday. "Family excited about dad at home for 2019," McCarthy told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "That’s all that matters as we both know." Per Pelissero, McCarthy will "prepare and be ready for 2020." In a rapidly changing league, it's possible McCarthy will be ready for the NFL but the NFL will no longer be ready for him.
Jan 9 - 10:30 PM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports ex-Dolphins OC Dowell Loggains is expected to serve in the same capacity for Adam Gase with the Jets.

Yikes. Gase coordinates his own offense, so Loggains is more of an adviser/sounding board. It's still an extremely uninspiring move for a Jets team that is going against this offseason's grain of bold coaching hires. Loggains has never been anyone's idea of fun on offense, from Tennessee to Chicago to Miami.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets are no longer pursuing Baylor coach Matt Rhule for their head coaching position.

Rhule had emerged as the favorite to replace Todd Bowles in East Rutherford, but he informed his staff Wednesday that he'll be staying at Baylor. Per beat reporter Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Rhule wanted to hire his own assistants, which was apparently a deal-breaker for the Jets. With Rhule no longer in the running, it appears the Jets' choices for head coach are down to Mike McCarthy and Adam Gase.
Jan 9 - 7:34 PM

Bucs hired ex-Jets DC Kacy Rodgers as defensive line coach.

Rodgers was new Bucs DC Todd Bowles' DC for the Jets, but Rodgers will now return to his customary position coach role that he served for 20-plus years before getting his first coordinator job under Bowles. Rodgers missed some time during this past season to what was called a serious illness.
Jan 9 - 3:49 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports ex-Packers coach Mike McCarthy isn't pursuing any other head-coaching job than the Jets' opening.

Of course, McCarthy has only been linked to the Browns and Jets, loosely with the Bucs before Tampa settled on Bruce Arians, and Cleveland doesn't appear to be considering McCarthy, instead narrowing their list to OC Freddie Kitchens or Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski. McCarthy seems to be facing competition for the Jets gig from ex-Bucs OC Todd Monken and Baylor's Matt Rhule. It's unclear right now where the Jets are leaning. Monken is the most intriguing.
Jan 8 - 10:46 PM

The Jets interviewed Bucs OC Todd Monken for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

The news comes the same day fellow Jets candidate Kliff Kingsbury was snapped up by the Cardinals. With nearly every head-coach searching team hoping for an offensive mind to run the whole operation, Monken's chances should not be downplayed in Florham Park.
Jan 8 - 5:07 PM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Browns' meeting with former Packers coach Mike McCarthy is "on hold."

McCarthy was supposed to interview for the job last week, but that never happened. Demovsky reports "things are on hold for now while the Browns talk to other candidates." McCarthy still "remains very much in play for the Jets," according to Demovsky.
Jan 8 - 9:56 AM

USC OC Kliff Kingsbury will interview with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Kingsbury met with the Jets on Monday. USC originally blocked Kingsbury, who has yet to even coach for the team, from meeting with NFL teams, but the two sides apparently came to an agreement. Kingsbury fits the trendy mold of a young offensive mind.
Jan 8 - 9:27 AM

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman reports the Jets are interviewing USC OC Kliff Kingsbury for their head-coaching vacancy on Monday.

Kingsbury has been linked to the Jets and Cardinals, and the Jets are getting the first crack at talking to him. (Who knows if Kingsbury is even interested in the Arizona job.) Kingsbury is a bright offensive mind who turns 40 later this summer. He hasn't even coached at USC yet after signing on with the Trojans after he was fired as head coach of his alma mater, Texas Tech. Kingsbury already has players campaigning for him, specifically Jets' stud young S Jamal Adams.
Jan 7 - 5:28 PM

FOX's Jay Glazer reports Kliff Kingsbury is interviewing for NFL head-coaching vacancies.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Kingsbury is scheduled to interview with the Cardinals and Jets at minimum. The Trojans had been previously blocking Kingsbury's professional interviews. He now has the green light.
Jan 7 - 3:14 PM

The Jets interviewed Jim Caldwell for their head-coaching vacancy on Monday.

Caldwell talked with the Cardinals and Browns last week. He has also been connected to the Packers.
Jan 7 - 2:54 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Jets are interested in Baylor coach Matt Rhule for their head coaching vacancy.

The Jets are scheduled to be in Dallas this weekend to interview Cowboys DBs coach/pass-game coordinator Kris Richard and they may be planning to sit down with Rhule as well. The 43-year-old New York native is credited with turning Temple's program around and is also coming off a bowl win with Baylor this past season. His only experience at the pro level came in 2012 when he served as the Giants' assistant OL coach. The former Penn State linebacker joins Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy, former Lions and Colts coach Jim Caldwell, former Dolphins coach Adam Gase, USC OC Kliff Kingsbury, former Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Buccaneers OC Todd Monken and Richard as candidates for the Jets' top job.
Jan 4 - 4:27 PM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Bengals have requested an interview with Bucs OC Todd Monken.

Monken already has an interview scheduled with the Jets. A former head coach at Southern Miss, Monken lead one of the most explosive offenses in the league even with since-fired Dirk Koetter meddling late in the season. He should at worst land a coordinator position even if he does not get a head-coaching job.
Jan 3 - 10:36 AM

Yahoo Sports' Chris Robinson reports USC OC Kliff Kingsbury is expected to get head coaching interviews with the Cardinals and Jets.

Kingsbury signed with the Trojans as the offensive coordinator just a couple weeks ago after being fired as Texas Tech's head coach, but the offensive mind is scheduled for two head coach interviews with potentially more coming. There are two other teams who have Kingsbury on their lists for head coach interviews, but they haven't set him up for an interview. Robinson also reports that Kingsbury is "considered a prime commodity for top-level offensive coordinator positions" but questions if he'd accept an OC gig. Kingsbury turned down a "lucrative" offer to be the University of Houston's head coach last week to stay at USC.
Jan 2 - 10:51 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets are expected to interview former Packers coach Mike McCarthy for their head coaching job.

This will be his first known interview. Despite widespread interest, McCarthy has mostly laid low since his departure from Green Bay. McCarthy has been noncommittal about coaching in 2019, citing a reluctance to uproot his family. However, the Jets appear to have piqued his interest and for good reason. With a high draft pick coming and a future franchise quarterback in Sam Darnold, not to mention the bright lights and prestige of coaching in New York City, the Jets' vacancy presents arguably the most enticing job in this year's coaching cycle. Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic reported Sunday the Browns were zeroing in on McCarthy, though that seems to have been a misnomer.
