The Jets' search for a general manager may have hit a snag.

The early favorite, 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, will interview Tuesday with the Chargers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday night. Earlier Sunday, there were reports that Gamble had pushed back back his Chargers interview, fueling speculation that a Gamble-Jets deal was on the horizon.

That apparently isn't the case.

In the meantime, the Jets are said to be focused on another candidate. It's not clear if that person is Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell, whom they interviewed Friday, or the two candidates slated to meet Monday with team officials -- Jets assistant GM Scott Cohen and Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross.

Caldwell reportedly is a leading candidate for the Jaguars' GM vacancy. Unless there's a mystery candidate, the Jets must interview Ross to satisfy the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate.

Perhaps this latest twist is posturing on the part of the Jets -- and Gamble, for that matter.

This much is known: From the outset, the Jets were prepared to expand the search if they weren't blown away by someone in the first round of interviews. If they go that route, they could try to re-connect with Packers director of football operations John Dorsey. He was on their original interview list, but the situation turned fluid amid reports he was headed to the Chiefs.

Another possibility is Dolphins assistant GM Brian Gaine, a former Jets player and scout who comes with Bill Parcells' stamp of approval.


Not sure what's going on here. We may screw this up yet.

Sounds like the Jets are in the driver's seat and dragging their feet. I know they can't do anything til they interview Ross on Monday, but still don't like Gamble talking to other teams.. Can't imagine who the jets could have in mind - considering they only interviewed Caldwell who is probably going to Jacksonville.

The Chargers are planning to hire a new general manager before they move on to finding their next head coach and they should reach the end of that process in the next few days.

That was the message from team president Dean Spanos, who said that the team’s road trip to interview candidates over the last few days has left them close to making a decision about who will take over the job vacated by A.J. Smith.

“The process is winding down. As you know, we’ve been on the road the last few days and just returned to San Diego,” Spanos said, via the team’s website. “It was a productive trip as we were able to meet with a number of people in a short period of time. Hopefully we can make a decision within the next day or two.”

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the team’s current director of player personnel Jimmy Raye and Colts vice president of football operations Tom Telesco are considered the top two candidates for the job. Acee also reports that Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is “at or near” their list of coaching candidates whether or not Telesco winds up getting the G.M. post.

Since when is Gamble the next sure fire can't miss GM? Did I miss something does he have 4 SB teams he put together? All these young up, and comers are GAMBLE'S! Let's not act like WE know the difference between his potential GM ability, and someone like Ross. As long as we don't hire from within I'll be ok.

Can someone please translate this? Arians is "at or near" a list of candidates? WTF does that even mean?

Perhaps at or near the TOP of the list? If so I'll be bummed. I really think Arians is going to be an excllent head coach in this league. Add to that the fact that he helped develop P. Manning, Rothlisberger, and now Luck...the guy has a solid record. And he coached the Colts into the playoffs from the worst record in the league last year as a stand-in.

I think they want him but he has expressed legitimate concerns about the job. So they are CYAing in case they cannot get him. Gee, I wonder what he could be concerned about? The cap? The coach? The owner??????

By my count, the Jets haven't interviewed anyone but Gamble to this point. Since Heckert cancelled.

I think Cimini is just making sh*t up to get some clicks before the Tuesday press conference.

Other theory is that this is being fed to press and floated to gauge fan reaction to news of potentially getting someone other than Gamble. Not outside of Woody's realm of derpitude.

Steelers fans considered Arians an idiot who did not design, plan, or call the proper plays for their QB and roster. It was a great day to see that clueless ninkompoop go away for them so he could ruin another offense.

IMO, Korn/Ferry is spreading rumor to improve the Jets position, and Gamble's agent is countering.

In the meantime lets hope the Daily News can capture a picture of Rex shoveling his driveway today. We need to be kept abreast of what's going on with Ryan.

No. I didn't, I come here and read the over-reactive estrogen wars to find out what's going on. See... reading 2 vageen sentences from you to find out what's up was a lot was easier than wasting my time with a whole article.

Thanks.

Hey, anybody think of this possibility: the interview with Ross is more than just to satisfy the Rooney Rule. Ross happens to be an outstanding candidate and talent evaluator who has been running the Giants drafts the last several years and has done an amazing job.

I don't think the Jets want to give the impression that this is a done deal while they still have to negotiate a contract with him and while they have yet to interview the minority candidate. I remember in the past, teams getting in big trouble for holding a sham of a minority interview when they have already decided who to hire.
