It hasn’t been officially announced by the New York Jets, but a report surfaced yesterday that the team has agreed to hire a new OLB Coach. Kevin Greene has joined Gang Green. Some fans were excited, while others were not sure what to think.
Let’s check Wikipedia for his career highlights and awards:
- 5× Pro Bowl (1989, 1994–1996, 1998)
- 3× First-Team All-Pro (1989, 1994, 1996)
- NFL Defensive Player of the Year (1996)
- NFC Defensive Player of the Year (1996)
- 2× NFL sacks leader (1994, 1996)
- NFL 1990s All-Decade Team
Here are some of his highlights as a player:
Greene has played against the best and learned from them for many years, leading to a Pro Football Hall of Fame induction:
He dabbled in wrestling until the NFL forbid it:
He also spent time with the National Guard, and he has used some of that experience in coaching his players:
And as OLB Coach, he won Super Bowl XLV with the Green Bay Packers.
The Jets have a lot of work to do to be successful as a team in 2017. But as for the outside linebackers unit, I tend to think Greene’s gang will be in good hands. How do you feel about this hire now, Gang Greene gangsters?
