Parting Ways With O-Line Coach was Right Move for Bowles, Jets

While some fans questioned the wisdom of the recent firing of offensive coordinator John Morton, That shouldn’t be the case with offensive line coach Steve Marshall who was also reportedly let go today by Todd Bowles and company.

A 10-year coaching veteran, Marshall has spent each of the past three seasons working with the Jets O-line but the regression that fans saw this season was absolutely a fireable offense.

The team’s offense struggled to run the ball effectively for much of the season and the primary culprits for those struggles were James Carpenter, Wesley Johnson and Brian Winters, the heart of the team’s O-line.  Winters gets somewhat of a pass as we learned after the season that he’d played all year with a torn abdominal muscle, but Carpenter’s regression was a tough pill to swallow.

With Marshall out of the picture, the Jets are now in the market for a quarterbacks coach to replace the promoted Jeremy Bates and an offensive line coach to step in for Marshall.
