New York Jets: The Current List of Candidates

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

The past two days have been kind of a blur. There have been a ton of names thrown around as possible candidates. I just want to put all of the current candidates in one place. Right now there are seven confirmed candidates for the general manager job and six for the head coaching job. These are people in whom the Jets have expressed interest. Both lists could grow. Some of these candidates might have no interest in the jobs.

This is simply where we are at. Please enjoy the majesty of our GGN charts below listing the current crop of candidates in no particular order.
