Another HC Interview: Sean McDermott

New York Jets

Although there has been no official announcement, several reports are indicating that Mike Maccagnan is the new general manager of the NY Jets. He isn’t wasting any time, as he is set to interview Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott for the vacant head coaching position.

This interview could be a matter of having a contingency plan in place, as Woody Johnson seems like he is waiting on Dan Quinn. Quinn is busy at the moment as the Seahawks prepare to play the Packers in the NFC Championship game.

Todd Bowles (Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator) is another candidate and he is coming back in for a second interview.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that both the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons are bringing in Bowles for a second interview, according to sources informed of the plans.

The Jets, meanwhile, provide the type of defensive personnel already on the roster that would lend nicely to Bowles’ creative blitz schemes

If the Jets decide that Bowles is their top choice, they are free to work out a deal with him right away.

The speculation about ex-Bills coach Doug Marrone has quieted down, and we are told the Jets are no longer seriously considering hiring Marrone. One other candidate with a background in offense took his name out of the running. Ex-Texans coach Gary Kubiak will be returning to the Ravens next season.
