Jets seek a head coaching interview with Todd Monken

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken has joined Eric Bieniemy and Kris Richard as a Jets coaching candidate.

Monken has become a stealth head coaching candidate. He has coordinated the Tampa Bay offense for the last three years.

Prior to that he had a long career working in college football. His one head coaching job was at Southern Mississippi where he compiled a 13-25 record in three seasons. It must be noted, however, that his final season produced a 9-5 record so there were signs of progress within that program.

The Buccaneers are also seeking a head coach after the firing of Dirk Koetter. Monken could plausibly be a candidate in that search.

Monken is such a wild card that I can’t really comment on how good of a choice I think he’d be. I’ll have to do some more research for that. But I do like the fact the Jets are thinking outside the box.
