Manish Mehta reports the offensive coordinator search has begun. The Jets are interviewing Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
I'm told former Eagles OC Marty Mornhinwig is on Jets' OC list. I believe he's interviewing as early as today.
Mornhinweg is from the Mike Holmgren/Andy Reid coaching tree. He is a West Coast offense type. He is probably best known for a disastrous 5-27 stint as Matt Millen's first head coach with the Lions where he once deferred after winning the coin toss in overtime to take the wind.
As a coordinator, though, Mornhinweg has been quite successful. He has worked under offensive oriented head coaches Steve Mariucci and Reid so this would be a chance for him to show what he can do on his own. In his career as a coordinator and head coach, offenses coached by Marty have been better than around three quarters of the league on average. At first blush, this seems like a good guy to look at.
