The Jets’ coaching search seems to be winding down. If nothing else, the first phase seems to be winding down. Yesterday reports came out that the team actually was able to interview Kliff Kingsbury for the job despite rumors from the weekend this would not be possible. The team has apparently also discussed the position with Matt Rhule. Soon the team will either make a hire, conduct second interviews, expand the search, or some combination of these.
I don’t see a total slam dunk candidate among the people the Jets are examining. That doesn’t mean these guys are necessarily destined for failure. Among the choices, I see positive and negative attributes. The positive attributes could make most of these guys successful. The negative could prevent them from having success.
On today’s podcast I offer thoughts on what I like about each of the eight current candidates and what gives me pause about each of them.
