You’re Fired! Jets Dump LaFleur Following Team’s Offensive Collapse to Close out 2022 Season

In a decision that likely came from above, Jets head coach Robert Saleh will have a new offensive coordinator on his staff when the 2023 season kicks off.  This, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.

 

There have been rumblings surrounding the job security of Mike LaFleur over the past few weeks.  Earlier today there were conflicting reports regarding the future of LaFleur in the Jets but we now have our answer.

According to Cimini, other clubs have inquired about LaFleur’s availability and the team hasn’t stopped him from pursuing a new job.

One of Robert Saleh’s closest friends on and off the field, LaFleur becomes the fall guy after the Jets saw their offense fail to score a single touchdown over the season’s final three weeks at the end of a six game losing streak.

Look for the Jets to target a play caller with a track record of working with and developing young quarterbacks such as Greg Olson of the Rams who has worked with Derek Carr who could be another target of the Jets in the coming weeks and months.
