According to Newsday, recently fired Bucs head coach Jon Gruden is apparently not of interest to the Jets as a head coaching possibility. Gruden, who was on Mike Holmgren’s staff in Green Bay when Brett Favre was there has run the offense that Favre has known for all but one of his 17 years in the NFL.
I guess the Jets aren’t concerned about the Favre factor. I was a bit surprised. In light of all that GM Mike Tannenbaum did to land Favre last season, and the likelihood of not having a major marquee name as head coach, they need a drawing card moving into their new stadium in a year.
Suffice to say there might be a bigger rebuilding effort in New York than some may have anticipated.
