McGaughey replaces Ben Kotwica, who left Rex Ryan’s coaching staff to take a similar position with the Washington Redskins. McGaughey helped lead LSU to the BCS national title game in 2011.
While it remains to be seen if Rex Ryan will get his contract extension, which may very well hinge on him changing some of staff to placate general manager John Idzik, the Jets now have to hire at least one new coach.
Call the Jets whatever you want. Rex Ryan doesn’t care. Some say lucky. Others say good. Or, maybe, it’s a little of both.
Newly-hired New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Sanchez will probably have “just a little bit of a leg up” in any quarterback competition the team has this offseason.
The New York 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.
John Idzik will try to turn things around for the troubled New York Jets. Woody Johnson believes he’s up to the massive task.
The Jets announced the firing of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano during Tuesday’s much-anticipated press conference.
In addition to backing up Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow has been rumored to see time as a punt protector. But punt protection may not be all that Tebow is asked to partake in within the special-teams unit. He may also be utilized on kickoff coverage.
If you’re a Jets fan, don’t be afraid to go out and buy a Sanchez jersey. He’s not going anywhere.
