Jets Likely to Hire OL Coach Dave DeGuglielmo

New, comments

Armando Salguero, a columnist for the Miami Herald, is reporting that the Jets have all but signed former Dolphin's offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo to replace Bill Callahan. Rich Cimini is reporting that the Jets are still very interested in signing former Dolphins offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as the quarterbacks coach.

I find this move to be quite upsetting, personally. Salguero's argument is that "One failure does not make you a failure," in terms of the Jets hiring failed Miami coaches. I'm not happy though that the Jets are seemingly trying to create Miami North, a mirror image team of our southern rivals. The problem with that logic is that the Dolphins are not a good team. I could understand if they were trying to mirror say, the Packers, but it's not like the Dolphins are really doing much that's worth emulating. They're not very good. So why are we taking their coaches and likely their players?

In any case, DeGuglielmo has been a line coach his entire career, working for Boston College, Boston University, Connecticut, South Carolina, the Giants, and most recently the Dolphins.
