The Jets are expected to hire Rick Dennison as their run-game coordinator and offensive line coach, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Bills fired Dennison as offensive coordinator after the wild-card playoff loss to Jacksonville when they failed to score a touchdown.

Dennison joined the Bills after the team hired Sean McDermott as head coach last year, and Dennison oversaw a unit that finished 29th in total yards and 22nd in points in 2017.

Dennison worked with new Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates in Denver.

He has spent 23 seasons coaching in the NFL, mostly in Denver, but also with stops in Houston and Baltimore as well as Buffalo.

  1. No mention of the Bills run game ranking 6th in the NFL last season. But sure go ahead and throw his offensive coordinator stats up there, which is totally irrelevant considering the position he’s taking.

  2. Poor guy, the Jets go through coaches with this HC awful fast….hold out for something better, that may be a year off….

  3. I don’t dislike it but agree about Bowles. I think Bowles might be a better HC with a stronger GM and vice versa. Maccangna would a better GM with a stringer HC. I think these guys are not leaders and are good #2’s. Bowles and Maccagnan ARE the football deision makers for the Jets. Neither has had success at that respective positions. With all the coaching changes under Bowles I don’t believe a single coach left for a better spot. Sometimes I wonder that Bowles doesn’t hire better coordinators because he doesn’t want to hire his replacement.
