Giants interview Kacy Rodgers

There were reports that Kacy Rodgers was expected to be part of the quick-strike coaching staff in Tampa, but he’s not locked in yet.

Via Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the former Jets defensive coordinator interviewed with the Giants Thursday for a senior position on staff.

The 49-year-old Rodgers has the natural tie to Tampa, since his old boss in New York Todd Bowles is now the defensive coordinator there.

He previously worked with the Dolphins, where he coached Giants pass-rusher Olivier Vernon.

  1. agreed. The Jets defense was generally much better when Rodgers was demoted for a time or out sick. Never seems to make adjustments on the fly fast enough, defense frequently not prepared or blew coverages. Just not good results. But pays to have friends.

  2. Rodgers is a defensive line coach, not a DC. He has had success in the past coaching the d-line, and as the article says, has worked with OV.

    No one cares if he failed with the Jets; a lot of coaches have failed with the Jets.

  3. I hope the Giants fans who claim Jets fans don’t know what they’re talking about understand this guy inherited one of the best DL’s in the game and ran it into the ground.

    Nunn was the Jets defensive line coach for the past two seasons. But ok sure blame everything on the defensive coordinator, including trading Richardson, cutting Wilkerson and letting Snacks walk.

    I guess by your logic Darnold will be trash since Gase couldn’t do anything with Tannehill.
