He is currently one of five candidates the Jets have invited to interview.
The buzz in the media has suggested that Douglas is the early favorite to get the job. Anybody who remembers past searches knows this could go in any number of directions. Sometimes the early favorite lands the job. Sometimes he doesn’t. He might stumble in the interview process. Another candidate might have a great interview and end up impressing the decision makers enough to get the offer.
Douglas will get his chance to show the decision-makers he has the correct vision to lead the Jets into the future. Whether that meshes with what Chris Johnson and Adam Gase are looking for is something we will find out in the days and weeks ahead.
