The Jets have interest in Baylor coach Matt Rhule, Dan Graziano of ESPN reports.

The Jets will travel to Dallas-Fort Worth this weekend to interview Cowboys assistant Kris Richard on Sunday, so it is unclear whether they plan on speaking to Rhule during the visit to Texas, according to Graziano.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News wrote Thursday that the Jets should have Rhule high on their list of candidates.

Rhule, 43, interviewed with the Colts last year, but withdrew his name from consideration a day after news leaked of his interview.

He has coached on both sides of the ball and in the college and pro ranks, including serving as an assistant offensive line coach on Tom Coughlin’s staff with the Giants in 2012. Rhule, a native New Yorker, has turned around programs at Temple and Baylor.

  1. No no no this is not difficult jets you should know by now who you need as coach yet we haven’t interviews him yet. Get McCarthy

  2. This is the guy you hire over Kliff Kingsbury. His college record may not be much but it is very similar to what Bill O’Brien did at PSU. Kingsbury took over teams handed to him by Mike Leach and Tommy Tuberville and drove it into the ground, Rhule has coached in the NFL with Tom Coughlin before and has gotten everything he can out of Baylor far exceeding expectations.

  3. Does this guy stay anywhere for any period of time?…Bobby Petrino jr. in regards to keeping his word?
