Posted 29 Dec 2014found this on another board....
QuoteAs expected, the New York Jets have fired coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik, officially kicking off Black Monday.
Who might the Jets target as their next head coach?
Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, owner Woody Johnson is "eager to make a splash, sources said," though they will have a tougher time doing that with the "A-list of former coaches like Jon Gruden and Bill Cowher remaining in broadcasting."
Former NFL general manager Charley Casserly has been hired by the Jets to oversee the search.
"[Casserly] is very high on [Arizona Cardinals DC Todd] Bowles -- and [UCLA coach Jim] Mora is also viewed as a very strong candidate within that organization, sources said," La Canfora added.
Both Bowles and Mora are expected to receive plenty of interest from most NFL teams in need of a new head coach.
Who might replace Idzik as general manager?
"On the GM side, Houston scouting director Mike Maccagnan has long ties to Casserly, while the team is also expected to interview Minnesota assistant general manager George Paton, Browns assistant general manager Morocco Brown, Houston director of pro personnel Brian Gaine among others," La Canfora wrote.
ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini also mentioned Gaine as a possibility, as well as other NFL personnel people like the Kansas City Chiefs' Chris Ballard, Atlanta Falcons' Chris Pioli, New Orleans Saints' Ryan Pace, plus a few more.
We will update you with more candidates for both positions as names pop up in the coming days or weeks.
