The Jets are interested in former Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison as their run-game coordinator, Manish Mehta of the Daily News reports.

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

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

Mehta also reports the Jets have had discussions with former Titans coach Steve Jackson to become their assistant defensive backs coach.

The Jets announced they have fired offensive line coach Steve Marshall.

  1. I was really happy to hear that Bates was getting the promotion to OC and that Brian Callahan might be coming on board as Assistant OC / QB Coach, but this is the first potential hire I’m not too thrilled about.

  2. As a long time Jets fan I think team has an overall weak front office and a weak coaching staff. Remember when Parcells and Belichick ran the team for 3 years. They had depth in the front office (D.Haley & Tannenbaum) and depth on the coaching staff (Henning, Weis, Carthon T.Haley, Crennel, Groh, Mangini. The only position they didn’t have depth was QB. When Vinny went down it was over.
    The Jets staff under Bowles has been weak. He’s already more than half the staff in 3 years. He’s on his 3rd OC going into his 4th year. Maybe change his buddy DC Kacy Rodegrs. There are no potential HCs on the Bowles’ staff – no coaches leave the Jets for a promotion.
    I wouldn’t mind seeing them go back to HC Mangini and OC Brian Schottenheimer. They had one bad year in 3 when Chad Pennington went down with an injury.

  3. As a die hard Bills fan that just spent a season watching Dennison run our offense – I think the Jets should hire him!
