The Dolphins’ season ended on Sunday and one of the team’s assistant coaches may be in the mix for a new job.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Jets plan to speak with Dolphins quarterbacks coach/pass game coordinator Darrell Bevell about their offensive coordinator opening.

Bevell has extensive experience in the role after serving as the offensive coordinator for the Vikings, Seahawks, Lions, and Jaguars in previous stops. He was also the interim head coach of the Lions and Jaguars in 2020 and 2021, respectively.

The Jets parted ways with Mike LaFleur after two seasons. They have interviewed Eagles pass game coordinator Kevin Patullo and former Colts offensive coordinator Marcus Brady since making that move.

  1. So the question is do the Jets go with a known entity (even though some of it is bad) or give another unproven young guy a chance

  2. I hear Matt Patricia might be available. Are you sure you don’t want to interview him for OC?

  3. Great example of how once you get your foot in the NFL door, you can keep getting jobs despite lack of much success.

  4. Darrell Bevell was the guy who called that idiotic slant play for Seattle in the Super Bowl. You know, the play where the pass was intercepted in the end zone and it cost the Seahawks the game? Remember that play? The most stupid play call in Super Bowl history? And the Jets actually want to interview that guy to be the OC??? Well, if the Jets hire Bevell then they’ll deserve whatever they get.

  5. Classic overreaction by an owner. Hired a first time OC the last time, so now you want an experienced, rehash OC. Outside of QB, the jets roster is probably the best in the AFC east and one of the best in the league.

    As a Bills fan, I’m just glad they don’t have competent ownership.

    No, because it would be a promotion

    5 of his final 6 years in seattle they were 11th or better in scoring offense. Sounds to me like a great example of someone only thinking of the 1 super bowl appearance because that’s all they know 🤷‍♂️

  8. If they hire Bevell, they might as well announce Robert Saleh’s firing at the same press conference.

  9. Who know how Bevell will do if he is hired. But you do not NOT make the hire based one play that turned out bad. Based on that logic, Shula should have never gotten another job as he lost by more than 1 score as a 19 point favorite.
