Coaches Leaving

While the New York Jets are conducting their search for a new general manager, the teamís coaching staff has taken big hits in the process. The Kansas City Chiefs were the latest team to take a coach as they hired Bob Sutton to be their defensive coordinator. Sutton had been with the team since 2000.

The Jets have lost three members of the defensive staff as Sutton, Mike Pettine and Mike Smith have all left since the season ended. Pettine left to become the defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills while these positions yet although itís rumored that Dennis Thurman will be promoted to defensive coordinator.

Offensively the team has fired offensive coordinator Tony Sparano and will not bring back quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh. There hasnít been a decision on offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo who followed Sparano over to New York from the Miami Dolphins. Sparano was a disaster in his first season in New York. The team lacked any semblance of a functional offense. He also couldnít figure out a way to incorporate Tim Tebow into the offense. Mark Sanchez has regressed under Cavanaughís watch and clearly needs to go. Iíd like to see the team reach out to former quarterback Chad Pennington to replace Cavanaughís spot.

It seems really odd that all these coaches are leaving at the same time especially Pettine and Sutton who have either been with Rex Ryan a long time or with the organization. Pettine and Sutton both made lateral moves so itís not like either left the Jets for a promotion. Is there a deeper issue going on inside the teamís headquarters in Florham Park?

If you watched the press conference earlier in the week you could make the claim that Ryan has a lot of power within the organization. You could get this feeling just listening to the way Woody Johnson, the owner, spoke about his coach. Is it possible Ryan is difficult to work with and he just tired his assistants out?
