The Jets will interview Dolphins quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator Darrell Bevell for their offensive coordinator vacancy. The news was reported by Ian Rapoport.
The #Jets plan to speak with #Dolphins pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Darrell Bevell for their vacant OC job, sources say. Bevell has served as OC for three different teams and could serve as a key veteran voice.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 16, 2023
This news is no great surprise. Bevell was one of the first speculated candidates for the job. He and Robert Saleh both coached on Pete Carroll’s staff in Seattle in the early 2010s.
Bevell has plenty of experience running offenses. He has served as offensive coordinator for the Vikings, Seahawks, Lions, and Jaguars over the course of his long career. In this time he coached quarterbacks like Brett Favre, Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, and Trevor Lawrence (admittedly during Lawrence’s inconsistent rookie season).
The word that comes to mind with Bevell is “average.” If you don’t believe me, check out his record running offenses. If you add up his body of work, the offenses he has run have collectively been right at the league average in points scored and yards gained.
The Jets might have a bit of competition for Bevell’s services.
