The Jets fired late-night head coach Todd Bowles after the 55-year-old had spent three seasons with the team. Bowles ended his tenure with a 24-40 record – he won 10 of his first 15 games at the wheel. Bowles & Jets finished the season 2016 and 2011 5: 11, then 4: 12 this season. Hoping to open a new page, New York wastes no time looking for a replacement.
Here are the latest updates for finding the jets for a new head coach:
Dec. 31, 13:37:
Todd Monken : The Jets requested an interview with the offensive coordinator of Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Todd Monken, according to a report by Tom Pelissero by NFL Network . Monken had a college coaching experience with the Southern Miss Golden Eagles from 201
Ralph's Take: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a big disappointment with 5-11 this season, but somehow they had it the NFL's third-placed attack (415.5 yards per game) and the best Pass attack of the NFL (320.3). This is surprising, considering that they have started the year without starters Jameis Winston and then between him and the journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick . This success has put the 52-year-old Monken in the limelight, who was also successful as a head coach in college. In his three seasons, he transformed Southern Miss from a 1: 11 clash into a bowl team. He fits in the profile as an attacking guru, even if he is a little unknown.

Kris Richard: The jets call for an interview with Dallas Cowboys passing the game coordinator and the coach of the defense campaign Kris Richard, according to Pelissero . The connected with playoffs cowboys hired Richard in January this year as a DB coach. The former NFL cornerback began his coaching career at the Seattle Seahawks 2010 as assistant to the DB coach and was promoted to defensive coordinator 15. Richard's defense took first place in Seahawks' 15th season.
Ralph's Take: Richard, 39, is a very respected coach many people in the League believe. Be one Day one star as head coach. It's a great job for someone, but it makes no sense to the jets. His specialty is defense. He was the assistant who prepared the Legion of Boom Secondary in Seattle and then became her defensive coordinator. As a former NFL cornerback he has absolutely no background to offense. That makes him another Todd Bowles, and the jets do not need that. You need an offensive spirit, someone who can help maintain the quarterback Sam Darnold . Another defensive mind without experience in coaching would be a mistake.
Eric Bieniemy: The Jets requested an interview with Chief Officeman, Eric Bieniemy, according to Ian Rapoport by NFL Network . Bieniemy has eleven years of coaching experience – six years with Kansas City under head coach Andy Reid. Prior to the 2018 season, he was promoted to Chiefs OC. QB Patrick Mahomes had a great year under the direction of Bieniemy, finishing 383 of 580 passes for 5,097 yards a year.
Ralph's Take: This is a really good spot for the Jets, given the success of the young quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the explosiveness of the Chiefs offense. Andy Reid calls the games there, but that did not seem to hurt the men on the branches of his coach tree. Matt Nagy, his former offensive coordinator, turned the Chicago Bears this season and led them to the playoffs. His previous offensive coordinator, Doug Pederson, won a Super Bowl in his first season as Philadelphia Eagles head coach last year. So there is a track record. The only risk is that he did not work as a head coach at any level, and the jets want someone to have more experience than that.
Dec. 30, 12:00:
Mike McCarthy: Cardinals' ownership was addressed to former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, and the 55-year-old allegedly said he did not intend to pursue the opening, according to CBS Sports. The reports say McCarthy will suspend in 2019 when the perfect coaching opportunity does not come. McCarthy brought the Packers to four NFC championships in 13 years before being released into the season earlier this month. He finished his term at Green Bay with a regular season record of 125-77-2.
Ralph's Take: Simply the best candidate. In 13 seasons in Green Bay, he has had eight seasons with double-digit wins, nine trips to the playoffs, four trips to the NFC championship and a Super Bowl championship. It is unknown if he wants to train in New York.
