Could Rob Ryan and Jeff Garcia join the Jets?
Rob Ryan's 5 minutes are up and he got the Rams defensive coordinator job only to decide mutually to part ways with Jeff Fisher and St. Louis. Only 2 coordinator positions remain in the league. Philly and New Orleans. If Rob doesn't get those jobs. Would he join his twin brother in New York and perhaps become the team's linebacker and assistant head coach. Two positions currently vacant because of Bob Sutton's departure. The media will be pulling for a Ryan brothers pairing with the Jets.
By now, every one has read the reports of Mark Sanchez reaching out to Jeff Garcia to bring him up to speed on new coordinator, Marty Mornhinweg's offense. It's deja vu as Sanchez did this last off season with former Jet, Chad Pennington to try and take a crash course on Tony Sparano's offense last off season. The Jets have already hired a quarterbacks coach in David Lee to replace fired coach Matt Cavanaugh. Lee is a coach that the Jets have wanted on their staff for a while now but would the Jets consider bringing in Jeff Garcia and having him with the team on a permanent basis to work with Mark Sanchez during the off season. Garcia could be an assistant coach. It's a scary thought for the anti-Sanchez crowd because it would mean that the Jets are going all in yet again on Mark Sanchez as their starter. I don't know if Jeff Garcia has any desire to be a coach although he has been working with and training quarterbacks. Garcia did make a comment in a recent article that he could be Sanchez's new Mark Brunell. Which tells me he wouldn't mind being with the Jets perhaps on the roster. The funny thing is that Jeff Garcia probably still wants to play and even at his advanced age could out play Mark Sanchez.
