Jets Officially Name Dave DeGuglielmo As New OLine Coach

Post image for Jets Close To Adding OLine Coach From Miami

The Miami Herald is reporting that the New York Jets are close to adding ex-Dolphins offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo.

Googs, as he is affectionately called in the building, is headed to the New York Jets with longtime friend Tony Sparano, according to a league source.

Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll had feelers from other teams after the regular season. The Dolphins denied him permission to interview elsewhere, according to a source. While his fate in Miami has not been sealed, it is a long shot he will return to the staff, according to a source.

Daboll may wind up in either Kansas City or with the New York Jets.

At first glance that is a lot of former Dolphins coaches that could potentially be running the show in New York.  There were many times during the 2011 season, that left Jets fans feeling like it couldn’t get any worse on offense.  The Jets will show us if that is true in 2012.  Although, the Jets are looking to return to their roots as a physical team on offense and this coaching shakeup was long overdue.

We will keep you posted and let you know if these moves become official.

Agreed, although at the very least you can certainly say the Phins OL was the least of their concerns on offense these past few years, so hopefully that's a good sign.

Yes, because it takes other-wordly coaching ability to get solid production from a unit consisting of 4 former 1st Rd picks.

If anything, the most impressive thing he's done was keep Incognito from getting fined and/or suspended.

Hey, I didn't say it was a fantastically ringing endorsement, but it's better than the line he coached being garbage. Besides, for all of the sucking off Callahan got around here, what exactly did he accomplish when he didn't have a unit consisting of 4 former 1st round picks?

good addition to the staff IMO

Sparano is originally an OL coach so it's good to have HIS OL coach to run our OL.. Who knows, maybe things will be less confusing than the Shottenheimer/Callahan Turnstiles OL we saw in 2011

That is a REALLY good point.

As we reported yesterday, the New York Jets have named their new offensive line coach.  It is ex-Dolphin coach Dave Deguglielmo.

JETS NAME DAVE DeGUGLIELMO OFFENSIVE LINE COACH

The New York Jets have named Dave DeGuglielmo as the team’s offensive line coach. The announcement was made by Head Coach Rex Ryan.

DeGuglielmo joins the Jets after spending the last three seasons with the Miami Dolphins as their offensive line coach (2009-11). Under DeGuglielmo in 2011, the Dolphins offensive line blocked for a running game that gained 1,987 yards and produced Reggie Bush’s first career 1,000-yard season.  Dolphins tackle Jake Long has been selected to the Pro Bowl during each of DeGuglielmo’s three seasons in Miami.

Prior to the Dolphins, DeGuglielmo spent five seasons with the New York Giants.  He was the assistant offensive line coach (2005-08) after being the assistant offensive line and quality control coach in 2004.  Under his tutelage in 2008, the Giants set a franchise record and led the league with 2,518 yards rushing and 5.0 yards per carry.  He also helped guard Chris Snee and center Shaun O’Hara earn Pro Bowl recognition in 2009.

Before entering the NFL coaching ranks, DeGuglielmo spent five seasons (1999-2003) under Hall of Fame Coach Lou Holtz at the University of South Carolina working with the offensive line and tight ends.  He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Boston College, before moving onto stops at his alma mater, Boston University, and the University of Connecticut.

DeGuglielmo was an All-New England First-Team guard and center at Boston University (1987-90), where his offensive line coach for his final three years was current Jets Offensive Coordinator Tony Sparano.

Here is the from our NY Jets forum.  One poster brought up an excellent point on this move that we felt was worth highlighting.

Dolphan put it best a week ago. Hey man, we're all good, we've got Tony Sporano.

This is a fine move, and I feel pretty good about what the two Dolphins' coaches will do with the running game and OL.

I'm still interested to see what's done for the passing side of the ball. I liked grabbing the Raiders WR coach, but I'm thinking someone connected to the QB position.
