Jets Fire OL Coach DeGuglielmo, Hire Aguiar As Rex Ryan Fills Out Coaching Staff
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The overhaul of the Jets’ coaching staff continues.
The Jets have fired offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo and hired former NFL punter Louie Aguiar as an assistant as Rex Ryan filled out his coaching staff.
The team announced on Tuesday that DeGuglielmo would not return after one season, and will be replaced by tight ends coach-assistant offensive line coach Mike Devlin. The Jets also announced that assistant tight ends coach Lance Taylor has left to become the Carolina Panthers’ assistant wide receivers coach.
Aguiar, who played for four teams — including three seasons with the Jets — will assist special teams coach Ben Kotwica. Also joining Ryan’s staff are tight ends coach Steve Hagen, assistant offensive line coach Ron Heller, assistant strength and conditioning coach Pierre Ngo and assistant defensive line/linebackers coach Jeff Weeks.
