Report: Matt Nagy Among Three Offensive Coordinator Candidates Jets Are Considering

NFL: Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets are looking for an offensive coordinator. We are coming up on two weeks since the position opened, and there has been little movement. Only two candidates are known to the public, only one of them interviewed, and neither is going to get the job.

This would lead one to believe the team has its sights on a coach or coaches whose teams are still in the postseason and cannot yet leave their jobs. Rich Cimini indicates Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Matt Nagy is one of three names the team has its eyes on.

From what I understand, the Jets have at least three other names on their target list. Keep an eye on Matt Nagy, the Chiefs' co-offensive coordinator. Obviously, they can't talk to Nagy because the Chiefs still are playing, but he's someone who could interest Bowles.

Nagy isn't a household name, but he's considered an up-and-comer. Before being promoted to co-coordinator this season -- he splits the job with Brad Childress -- Nagy was the Chiefs' quarterbacks coach for two years. He and Bowles crossed paths in 2012, when they were on Andy Reid's staff with the Eagles. Actually, the family connection goes back further than that. Nagy's father, Bill, was one of Bowles' high school coaches in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

Of course, we don’t know whether Nagy would have any interest. This is just a hunch, but it might not be easy to lure him from a pretty good situation in Kansas City to a team without a quarterback in what essentially would be a lateral move.
