Four Assistants Bolt to Cleveland

Eric Mangini has hired four more members of his old staff with the Jets to Cleveland with him joining new offensive coodinator Brian Daboll.

Mangini hired defensive line coach Bryan Cox, defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson, defensive quality control coach Andy Dickerson, quarterbacks coach Carl Smith and assistant strength and conditioning coach Rick Lyle on Thursday

Out of these, losing Cox hurts the most. His intensity and enthusiasm were assets in practice. His mentorship of C.J. Mosley turned the lineman into a contributor. It is too bad Rex Ryan could not find a way to keep him in New York.
