Pair of Jets Assistants Land College All-Star Game Coaching Spots
Jets fans should know by now that defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich landed the all-important role of head coach at the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile. This is of course great news for Ulbrich who will have a front row seat to some of the top performers in college football for a full week.
However, assistant offensive line coach Ben Wilkerson and assistant special teams coach Michael Ghobrial also landed some under the radar spots that could pay off. Both will be working as coaches for the upcoming East/West shrine game where plenty of interesting prospects will be on hand.

A few key names Wilkerson will be working with include Illinois tackle Julian Pearl, Michigan tackle Karsen Barnhart who has played on both sides of the line and Boston College interior lineman Christian Mahogany.
@IlliniFootball left tackle Julian Pearl was a monster in the team's opener against Wyoming. @nyjets fans should be keeping a close eye on plenty of college left tackles this season. Pearl is now one I'll be watching. Four plays below. pic.twitter.com/Bp18LRnZMJ
