Jets hiring Marquand Manuel, Tony Oden as defensive assistants

The Jets have added a pair of veteran defensive assistant coaches to fill out Robert Saleh’s first staff.

Marquand Manuel will be New York’s safeties coach and Tony Oden will serve as senior defensive assistant/cornerbacks coach, according to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero.

Manuel played eight seasons in the league and has been coaching since 2012. He crossed paths with Saleh in Seattle from 2012-2013, when Saleh was a defensive quality control coach and Manuel was the assistant special teams coach and a defensive assistant.

Manuel was most recently the Eagles defensive backs coach in 2020. He was Atlanta’s defensive coordinator from 2017-2018.

Oden worked with Saleh last year as San Francisco’s defensive backs coach. He was with the Dolphins from 2018-2019, first as defensive backs coach and then as safeties coach.

One can reasonably assume the hiring of Manuel to be safeties coach comes after the rumored Jeremy Pruitt hire fell through 

I think the Pruitt thing was false. He went to the Giants - I think the initial report linked him to the wrong NY team.

Anyway, Manuel and Oden are good coaches and good additions to the staff.
