Jets defensive line coach leaves team

The Jets have lost five of their last six games, and are starting to lose staff members as well.

The New York Daily News reports that defensive line coach Kerry Locklin has left the team for personal reasons.  Rich Cimini writes that Rex Ryan had a disagreement with Locklin, but isn’t sure about the specifics yet. 

The decision for Locklin to leave is reportedly mutual.  The two coached together as far back as 1990-93 with Morehead State.

    Fat Rex is running off his coaches now instead of accepting blame for being a horrible coach. He will throw everyone on that team and coaching staff under the bus before he will accept responsibility.

    Damn, I really thought Rex was going to dominate this year, he should go back to being a DC, the Ravens miss him.

    This is about Locklin taking that last donut, isn’t it.
    Seriously, it doesn’t matter is that whole damn coaching staff leaves at this point, does it? How much worse could they suck?

    With Kris Jenkins out that line is not the same. Good DT’s are hard to come by and make any coach look good.

    The scuttlebutt says Locklin took the last donut during the coaches meeting. Bad move, Kerry.

    He took the last donut before the morning meeting

    The Jets transition from one genius to another. The Browns are licking their chops just waiting for Rex to get fired.
