"Cleaning house" as lots around here wants to do means taking away good defensive coaches like Rex, Pettine, Dunbar. And new coaching staff could mean a scheme change. You do that and you run the risk of retarding or limiting their overall growth and potential.
Coples and Wilkerson are going to be a special combo together.
If you were projecting the next five years, these two guys are two of the most five important players on the team. Jerking around and hiring a brand new staff (that might not devote much time to defense) does a disservice to three of the four most important Jets on the team -- #1 Revis, #3 Wilkerson, #4 Coples. I would consider Mangold #2 most important and Ferguson #5. Cromartie would be after but he's limited by the fact that he is at the back end of his peak years while the other five are either in the middle of it or gradually approaching the beginning of their peak years.
