Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will accept the Jets' request to interview for their head coaching job, a league source said Sunday night.

Since then, he has worked with the Cleveland, Dallas, Miami Philadelphia, and Arizona organizations. In addition to others, Bill Parcells, Andy Reid, and Bruce Arians are among the head coaches he has worked under.
