Coaching Buzz: Mornhinweg To New York?
Maybe Marty Mornhinweg‘s next job will be right up the turnpike.
I’m told former Eagles OC Marty Mornhinwig is on Jets’ OC list. I believe he’s interviewing as early as today. #nyj

However, he’ll have some competition.
Carolina requested permission to interview Hue Jackson about its OC opening, w/Chud gone. The Jets have also expressed interest in Jackson.

Some thought that Mornhinweg would follow Andy Reid to Kansas City, but it seems that a decision was made to part ways for the time being. Reid instead hired former QB coach Doug Pederson to be his offensive coordinator. Mornhinweg has been with Reid and the Eagles since 2003. I would imagine going from Reid to Rex Ryan would take a little getting used to.
Interestingly, Reid just hired former Jets linebackers coach Bob Sutton to be his defensive coordinator, leading to speculation that the recently-fired Rob Ryan may join his brother in New York.
