The New York Daily News reports former Eagles OC Marty Mornhinweg is on the Jets' "list" for the same job in New York, and could interview as early as Friday.
The Jets' coordinator search has been on the back-burner as they struggle to find a new GM, but Mornhinweg's pass-happy system would be a massive departure from Tony Sparano's spitball offense. It would seem to be a poor fit with Mark Sanchez's limited skill-set, but the Jets might be more interested in Mornhinweg's name than his résumé. Regardless of a potentially shaky marriage between philosophy and personnel, Mornhinweg would be an infinitely more qualified and experienced hire than Sparano.

Weird that the #Jets are reaching out to various offensive coordinators (Marty Mornhinweg, Hue Jackson & Cam Cameron) without a GM in place.
Didn't we learn that Cohen and Bradway were running things in the interim? So I'm not sure it's weird.
Edit: especially because Woody said Rex will pick the assistant coaches, the new GM will pick the players.
I respect the fact that Steiny cares this much about NYJ football and that as a college student with no institution backing him has gotten to a position where we take his tweets seriously, but some stuff he says, like "this GM search is a mess" is rather dubious.
