Jefferson worked as the position coach for Gase’s full three year tenure in Miami. Prior to that, he had a three year tenure as Tennessee Titans wide receiver coach. He served with the Detroit Lions in the same position in the five previous years. He was also with the Lions two years before that in different roles.
He had a 13 year career in the NFL as a wide receiver playing with the Chargers, Patriots, Falcons, and Lions. He had 470 yards for 7,023 yards, and 29 touchdowns in his playing days.
Karl Dorrell was the Jets wide receivers coach for Todd Bowles’ four year tenure.
