Jets Flying Robert Saleh in for Second Interview

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Three days ago the Jets interviewed 49’ers DC Robert Saleh, consider them impressed.

Ian Rapoport is tweeting that the Jets are flying Saleh over for a second interview in person.

As the #Jets narrow their list of head coaching candidates, they are flying in #49ers DC Robert Saleh for a second interview today, per me and @MikeGarafolo

. The first known finalist for the NYJ job, and there will be others likely in person, as well.

Saleh is one of my personal favourites for the position, so it’s an exciting development for the Jets.

He’s a hot commodity on the head coaching circuit this year having completed interviews with the Jaguars, Chargers, Falcons and Lions.

I’d expect the Jets to fly in 2-3 finalists for the position over the coming days as their off-season work on improving a 2-14 franchise gets underway.
