  2. Courtesy NY Jets Media Relations Statement from New York Jets Chairman & CEO Christopher Johnson “I am excited to announce Robert Saleh as the Head Coach of the New York Jets. After a thorough process and meeting with a number of talented coaches, it was clear to us that Robert was the right person to help us move forward. He is a collaborative leader with proven success in the NFL. In addition to his work as a coach on this level, his passion and knowledge of the game along with his vision for establishing an identity for this team sold me. It was also clear that he will partner with Joe to help foster and develop the winning culture we are striving to establish. For us as a group, we were impressed with the way he commanded the space and his ability to communicate his vision throughout the process. I know he will develop the players on our roster, hold them accountable, and put them in a position to succeed. Most importantly, I believe they will connect with him. We all know there is a lot of work to get done but we have a tremendous opportunity to improve and are thrilled to have Coach Saleh lead this team going forward.” Statement from New York Jets General Manager Joe Douglas “Coach Saleh is an exceptional teacher, motivator and communicator. He has earned every opportunity he has gotten and made the most of each of them. We spoke to some tremendous coaches, but Rob is the right partner and leader for us. His vision for this team aligns with what we have been working to establish here the last two years. Coach Saleh’s energy, knowledge and focus are contagious and will serve our team well as we continue to develop our culture, our foundation, and move this organization in the right direction. I am excited to work closely with him to build this team into the winner that our fans deserve and will be proud of.” Statement from New York Jets Head Coach Robert Saleh “It’s an honor to be the head coach of the New York Jets. To Christopher Johnson, thank you for this opportunity, it is one I’ve worked extremely hard for and will give everything I have to it. Throughout the interview process, it became clear that this is the right place to call home. The passion Christopher, Joe [Douglas] and Hymie [Elhai] have for this team is evident and I look forward to partnering with them to bring us where we want to be. You never travel these roads alone and there are so many that have helped along the way, but without my wife, Sanaa, this journey would have been impossible. Thank you for everything. We have six amazing children, with one on the way, and now we are all proud to be part of Jets Nation. There are no shortcuts to success, and I am committed to working with Joe to build this team the right way: with talented players that play fast and smart, and a staff that supports and helps develop them through it all. To Jets Fans, your passion and commitment are priceless. I understand your expectations and embrace them. We have a lot of work to do and can’t do it without your support. Thank you for your warm welcome and please stay safe and healthy.” The post Jets Formally Announce Saleh appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum). Click here to read the full story...
  3. There are more rumors about the coaching staff and Jets fans are liking what they are hearing. Nothing has been officially announced yet, but the other day we mentioned what is being reported for offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach with Mike LaFleur and Mile Austin being mentioned for those positions. A few more names came out yesterday: Two other members of Saleh's staff: Greg Knapp as QB coach, Rob Calabrese as pass game specialist. — Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) January 18, 2021 In our forums Football Guy provides some additional thoughts and gives thoughts on Sam Darnold and possible defensive coordinators. Official Hires HC: Robert Saleh, San Francisco 49ers (2020) OC: Mike LaFleur, San Francisco 49ers (2020) QB: Greg Knapp, Atlanta Falcons (2020) RB: Taylor Embree, Colorado University (2020) WR: Miles Austin, formerly San Francisco 49ers (2019) OL/run game coordinator: John Benton, San Francisco 49ers (2020) Pass game specialist: Rob Calabrese, Denver Broncos (2020) Unofficial DC: Jeff Ulbrich, Atlanta Falcons (could also coach LBs) Notes: Hiring John Benton is a huge score. One of the best line coaches in the league; Jets were able to lure him by “promoting” him to Run Game Coordinator. Not news: Douglas/Saleh/LaFleur are all Sam Darnold fans. News: Greg Knapp is a huge Sam Darnold fan. He’s coached among the best, and thought Darnold was Andrew Luck-level prospect. More and more it’s looking like this coaching staff will look to develop Darnold as opposed to getting rid of him. Rich Scangarello, who the Jets also considered, signed with the 49ers. Raheem Morris is among the top candidates for the DC position, but it sounds like he’ll choose JAX. It makes sense for him (more power, no state income tax, etc.) There are a number of defensive coaches being looked at, many who have worked with Saleh before (Todd Walsh, Marquand Manuel, Mike Rutenberg). Another name to keep an eye on is Anthony Weaver; he’s highly respected and Joe Douglas likes him a lot The post More Rumors About the Coaching Staff appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum).

  4. Rumors regarding who will round out key spots in New York Jets coach Robert Saleh’s coaching staff have been circulating and it looks as if one of New Jersey’s own will be getting (or has already gotten) a call from Saleh. Couldn’t be more excited for @MilesAustinIII being named WR coach for the @nyjets! Congrats and J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets! #MATime #Hawks4Life #2003and2004NECChamps #CharlieMike pic.twitter.com/24go9QG8o3 — Mark Fabish (@Coach_Fab) January 15, 2021 Miles Austin, a Summit, New Jersey Native and former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver is reportedly primed to take over as the team’s coach at the position. New Jets’ HC Robert Saleh is expected to take 49ers passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur as his offensive coordinator, per sources. https://t.co/3b8mPeFfPU — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 15, 2021 While no official announcement has been made, it is widely believed that Austin will be working under Matt LaFleur, who is expected to assume offensive coordinator duties after working as the passing game coordinator in San Francisco with Saleh.

  5. On tonight’s episode of JetNation Radio, we discuss the hiring of Robert Saleh as the Jets 20th head coach. Jets fans are feeling good and bringing in Saleh is producing the exact opposite reaction of what happened when Adam Gase was hired. Jets fans know football and they like this football move. There is energy in the air as the team lays the ground work for next year and beyond. There are reports that Mike LaFleur, who is currently the San Francisco 49ers passing game coordinator, will be the new offensive coordinator. He runs an offense that is suited to Sam Darnold’s style of play. But what will the team do with Sam Darnold? CJ Mosley is coming back, and the defense has questions as well. What do they do with Henry Anderson. Listen in as we discuss all this and more. Our Podcast can now be found on Spotify and Amazon Music. Also, be sure to subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Play.

  6. GreenBean is back and he is talking about Robert Saleh, who is officially the new Jets head coach. This video was recorded in Jacksonville, Florida. A week ago Jets fans were upset about losing out on Trevor Lawrence. But spirits are picking up because Saleh is reportedly brining in Mike LaFleur to be the next offensive coordinator. Unlike the previous regime this staff seems like it will be built around energy which has been sorely lacking here. What really happened when the Jets interviewed Robert Saleh ? Joe Douglas just met Saleh and he left without a deal, which led the Jets to do a second interview with Arthur Smith. It wasn’t long after that when the Jets had their man. This was the job Saleh wanted, this is the coach Douglas wanted. GreenBean breaks it all down, watch the video and let us know what you think in our NY Jets forum.

  7. The New York Jets have a new CEO. Well, kind of. There are multiple reports saying that Robert Saleh will indeed become the next coach of the New York Jets. A source who was a candidate for the job told me the #Jets informed them they are hiring Robert Saleh. — IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) January 15, 2021 New Jets’ HC Robert Saleh is expected to take 49ers passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur as his offensive coordinator, per sources. https://t.co/3b8mPeFfPU — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 15, 2021 Gang Green has reportedly come to terms with a new head coach in former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, whom the team flew in for a second interview after he impressed in round 1 of the teams extensive search. Saleh beat out a field that included Eric Bieniemy, Joe Brady, Arthur Smith, former Jet Aaron Glenn and several others. Robert Saleh is set to become the Jets new head coach. When GM Joe Douglas met with fans after ridding the organization of Adam Gase just over a week ago, he said that previous head coaching experience was not required and as owner Chris Johnson talked about wanting to add a CEO-type of figure who was able to oversee the entire roster as opposed to previous coaches who focused solely on one side of the ball. In Saleh, the Jets hope to have just that. Plenty familiar with the offensive side of the ball as a former college tight end, Saleh started his coaching career as an assistant at Michigan, Central Michigan and Georgia before landing his first job as a pro back in 2005. It was then that Saleh found a gig with the Houston Texans as a defensive intern and quality control under Dom Capers where he would get to know current San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan as the two spent four years together in Houston from 2006-2009. Following Capers’ departure, Saleh would work his way through the ranks under Gary Kubiak over the next five seasons. Saleh would eventually become Kubiak’s assistant linebackers coach before heading to Seattle for three seasons as an assistant under . From there it was on to the Jacksonville Jaguars for an additional three seasons where Saleh found himself coaching linebackers once again. Despite a horrendous 11-37 record for the Jags during his time there, Shanahan hadn’t forgotten his old friend from Houston and hired Saleh to run his defense with the 49ers. After a couple of less than ideal defensive finishes in 2017 and 2018 when the 49ers defense ranked 25th and 28th respectively, he guided San Francisco to a top 10 ranking in 2019 when they came in at number 8 overall. High hopes for the 2020 season were dashed early when Saleh and the Niners were ravaged by injuries, starting with star linebacker Nick Bosa and defensive lineman Solomon Thomas, both in a span of just a few plays in week 2 against the Jets. Now Saleh, a man who we hear commands (and has) the respect of his players, becomes the 20th head coach in team history and has plenty of work to do with Joe Douglas. First order of business? What to do with Sam Darnold. Visit our forums to see what other die-hard fans are saying about Robert Saleh to the Jets.

  8. NOTE: This video was recorded before the Robert Saleh announcement. The New York Jets have a new head coach and before the news was official GreenBean took a look what Robert Saleh offers. Breaking down how his defense played well even after devastating injuries. What a concept and it is one that will be foreign to Jets fans based on the last coach here. Injuries don’t have to be the end of the season? Who would he hire as his offensive coordinator? Reports are Mike LaFleur will be the guy. Better days are ahead Jets fans, welcome to 2021. Check out this video and remember, it was recorded before the good news was announced about the NY Jets newest head coach. Be sure to subscribe to JetNation on YouTube so you never miss a video.

  10. On this week’s episode of our NY Jets Podcast, Glenn Naughton discusses the ongoing search for a new head coach. It looks as if the team lost out on Robert Saleh, for now at least, since the 49ers defensive coordinator left town to interview with the Philadelphia Eagles. Several reports say that Saleh is the Jets first choice, and next up on the second interview is Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Check out this short episode of JetNation Radio to get caught up on the coaching interview updates. Is this a money issue? Did Saleh leave to drive up the price and could he still be the Jets next coach? Listen in for the latest updates. A big thank you to the official sponsor of JetNation Radio, MILE Social.

  11. After it seems the Jets lost out on San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinatory Robert Saleh in their bid to land a new head coach, the team is turning to Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, who according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, is the Jets second choice. The #Falcons had a second interview today with #Titans OC Arthur Smith, who then flew to New York to have dinner tonight with #Jets brass, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. Next up for Smith: The #Eagles on Thursday and #Lions on Friday. A red-hot head-coaching candidate. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 13, 2021 Smith has two years of experience as an offensive coordinator under head coach Mike Vrabel in Tennessee where Derrick Henry has turned the Titans in to one of the top offenses in the NFL under Smith.

  12. If Robert Saleh was indeed the Jets top choice to be their new head coach, it would appear it’s time to move on to plan B. With his second interview with the #Jets completed, #49ers DC Robert Saleh is headed to Philly to interview with the #Eagles, source said. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 13, 2021 Saleh has left Florham Park without a deal despite multiple reports tabbing him as the team’s first choice. The fact that he was the first coach to come in for a second interview supports that claim, but no deal was done. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, the Jets second choice is Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, so stay tuned to see who comes in next. In two seasons as an offensive coordinator, Smith’s offense has leaned heavily on running back Derrick Henry en route to the 12th ranked offense in 2020 and the 2nd ranked unit it 2019. Be sure to visit our forums to read more about Robert Saleh’s interview with the Jets. That thread also has fan reaction, so you can see what other Jets fans think about Saleh leaving with a signed deal.

  13. NFL Insider Ian Rapoport is reporting that Jets head coach candidate Robert Saleh will be the first interviewee to fly out to meet with the Jets brass for a face-to-face interview. https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/1348992446215168000 The San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator has been a hot name to pick up a head coaching job since last season and looks to be one step closer to landing a job with the Jets. Saleh has interviewed with multiple teams thus far and is one of several coaches to come in and interview with the Jets. He has worked for the Texans, Jaguars and Seahawks before landing his current post as the 49ers defensive coordinator. In four seasons with San Francisco, Saleh’s units have ranked 16th, 16th, 3rd and 5th respectively.

  14. When the Jets fired floundering head coach Adam Gase one week ago, on question that was asked of general manager Joe Douglas seems to have answered itself in the days that have followed. Asked if the team would seek out a candidate with previous head coaching experience, Douglas said the search would consist of a wide array of candidates. Well, eight head coaching interviews later and the Jets seem to be heading down a familiar path in focusing on coordinators with no head coaching experience. Outside of Marvis Lewis, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, the Jets have exclusively interview a bevy candidates who have never run a team before. Outside of Gase, that has been a theme under current ownership dating all the way back to Al Groh. Who are the current candidates? Here’s a quick recap. Already Interviewed Eric Bieniemy, Chiefs OC: Sometimes life just isn’t fair, and for Bieniemy, that time might be now. Offensive coordinator by title, Bieniemy could be hurt by the fact that he works for one of the best offensive head coaches in NFL history in Andy Reid. Suitors have little reason to believe Reid isn’t the man calling the plays when games are on the line and that can’t be good for Bieniemy. Add to that the fact that he’s working with the most talented trio of weapons in the NFL in Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce and it further complicates things. Marvis Lewis, ASU DC: Lewis is an interesting candidate. Jets fans seemed to collectively recoil when they heard the name as Lewis has an impressive list of post-season failures having never won a playoff game in almost two decades at the helm for the Bengals. However, Lewis did turn the Bengals in to a respectable team for much of that time after years of futility. Could some time away have helped Lewis grow and become a better head coach? It wouldn’t be the first time that has happened, but it’s Impossible to say at this point. Inn Lewis, the Jets would be bringing in a culture changer with multiple division titles under his belt in a very competitive division. The biggest issue facing Lewis may be his age at 62-years-old. Robert Saleh, SF DC: Saleh has spent the past four years as the defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, leading them to finishes of 25th, 28th, 8th and 17th on defense in that time frame. An animated figure on the sidelines who many view as a player’s coach, Saleh has spent with the Texans, Seahawks and Jaguars before landing with the 49ers. Joe Brady, Panthers OC: Brady has an impressive resume as a play caller on offense and was a name that was thrown around early on as a candidate the Jets should bring in for a look. After spending some time working for the highly respected Sean Payton in New Orleans, Brady branched off on his own to call the plays for LSU where the Tigers put up astronomical offensive numbers with Joe Burrow under center. From there, Brady moved on to join Matt Rhule in Carolina where the Panthers ranked 18th on offense after losing their best weapon in Christian McCaffrey for all but three games this season. Matt Eberflus, Colts DC: Somewhat of a surprise candidate early on, Eberflus has been coaching since way back in 1992 when he broke in with Toledo for nine seasons before spending eight seasons at Missouri. From there it was on to the NFL where he has worked with the Browns, Cowboys and Colts. Eberflus has led the Colts’ defense to a remarkable turnaround. In the three seasons prior to his arrival, the Colts D ranked 26th, 30th and 30th. In three years under Eberflus, they’ve checked in at 11th, 16th and 8th. Brian Daboll, Bills OC: If the Jets are going to go the inexperienced route, Daboll should be the choice among the current listed candidates. He comes from within the division and is the unquestioned play caller on offense for a Buffalo team that has led Josh Allen to one of the most improbable turnarounds you’ll ever see. Allen has gone from a wild, erratic gunslinger to one of the NFL’s top passers. A coach (or offensive coordinator) who has shown the ability to develop a young QB should be a must. Brandon Staley, Rams DC: No candidate has done more to raise their stock in the first round of the playoffs than Staley. Facing one of the NFL’s top offenses on the road in the Seattle Seahawks, Staley lost all-universe defensive lineman Aaron Donald for a huge chunk of the contest and his unit still clamped down on Russ Wilson and company. That performance on its own should raise a few eyebrows for the early sceptics. Arthur Smith, Titans OC: Smith has been the man calling the plays for the Titans where he has overseen a career resurgence from Ryan Tannehill who was far less productive under Adam Gase. As is the case with Bieniemy, some of his success may be dismissed by those who see a team who seems to “have it easy” as Tennessee feeds monster running back Derrick Henry time and again. Scheduled to be Interviewed Aaron Glenn, Saints DB Coach: Fans who remember Glenn as an undersized player who showed up big on Sunday’s as a lockdown corner will feel some nostalgia in seeing his name on the list, but his lack of experience makes him a long shot. After working in personnel with the Jets for two seasons, Glenn moved on and has since coached for the Browns as an assistant defensive backs coach before moving on to New Orleans where he has been the defensive backs coach for Sean Payton’s secondary for four seasons. It would be a popular hire, but one that would spark little more than cautions optimism. Having played for Bill Parcells and worked for Payton, Glenn has had a front row seat to some of the best who have ever done it. Rumored Candidates: Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern HC: Fitzgerald hasn’t been confirmed for an interview but there have been rumblings of interest from the Jets side. He would be only the second candidate with head coaching experience and has built a strong program at Northwestern. Doug Pederson, Eagles HC: This one seems like a long shot, but also has a very “Jetsy” feel to it. As things have unraveled for Doug Pederson in Philadelphia with the Eagles, there are rumors of interest from the Jets based on Joe Douglas and his history with the Eagles. Pederson is a Super Bowl winning head coach whose team may have suffered more significant injuries than any other club in 2020, so it might be a bit premature to write him off. Wink Martindae, Ravens DC: There was presumed interest from the media in regards to Martindale based on having spent three seasons in Baltimore with Joe Douglas but no interview requests have been confirmed as of yet.

  15. Maybe the Seahawks just need more dawgs? Jets fans got to enjoy a rare win this weekend without the Jets having to take the field. Jamal Adams and the Seattle Seahawks were loser’s of their wildcard round of the NFL playoffs when they fell to the Los Angeles Rams this Saturday, meaning the first-round pick Seattle gave to the Jets for Adams will be no higher than 22nd but no lower than 24th. Jets fans took a bit of extra joy from the game as Adams was smoked against both the pass and the run. After the game Adams would go with the predictable “I was playing hurt” mantra but none of that matters to Jets fans. Adams and his demands for one of the richest contracts in the NFL is Pete Carroll’s problem now while a pick that some thought could be as low as 32 will be significantly better. With Seattle’s first and third round picks this year, Joe Douglas will have 3 picks in the top 35 and six in the top 100. Now it’s up to Douglas to make something out of them.
