Report: Jets To Interview Cameron, Hamilton For OC Job
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Jets still haven’t settled on a general manager. But in New York, the show must go on.
Apparently so much the search for a new offensive coordinator.
Cam Cameron, who was fired last month as OC of the Baltimore Ravens, will interview on Monday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported via Twitter.
Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton will get his crack at the job, possibly on Tuesday, Mehta added. Former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Cincinnati Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson have also been linked to the vacancy.
Tony Sparano was fired as Jets offensive coordinator last week, taking the fall for a punchless offense that wasn’t able jump-start the sputtering career of quarterback Mark Sanchez — or fully utilize multi-threat backup Tim Tebow.
Coach Rex Ryan is looking for an “attack mentality” from his new offensive coordinator.
“It’s important to make sure we get a guy who understands exactly what we want,” Ryan said last week during his season-ending press conference.
Meanwhile, former Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, internal candidate Scott Cohen and Pittsburgh’s Omar Khan have reportedly made it to the next round in New York’s GM search.
