Cleveland has their man.
The Browns inked recently fired Jets coach Eric Mangini to a four-year contract. Of course, the part that matters to Jets fans is how much of the current New York staff he will try to lure to Cleveland. Rumors were flying around Bill Callahan, but unless he is moving up the coaching ranks by going to Cleveland.
Boland reports that Mangini has made inquiries to receivers coach Noel Mazzone and quarterbacks coach Brian Daboll. He also points out that he had never actually met Callahan until before this season, as he was a Mike Tannenbaum recommendation.
Also, Jeff Jagodzinski completed his interview with the Jets, and as promised, Boston College fired him. At the surface, you would think that if Jagodzinski was going to risk his job at BC for simply an interview, he probably imagines he has a good chance at the job. But the real reason is that he's looking to get back in the NFL, and some have reported he could become Seattle's offensive coordinator if he doesn't get the job here. UPDATE: Seattle will name Greg Knapp offensive coordinator, so that job is out for Jags.
That's all for now. I'll probably have an update at some point later, but there probably won't be any new Jets news until Rex Ryan interviews, probably on Sunday or Monday.
Oh, and one more thing, I'm going to be toying around with the layout of this blog a little bit. So if you go to JetsDaily.com, and you don't recognize what you see, don't panic, it's still me.
UPDATE (7:42 PM): ESPN reports Mangini is expected to name Jets QB coach Brian Daboll as his offensive coordinator and Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan as his defensive coordinator. So the Jets will probably have a new quarterbacks coach, and those who hoped to get both Ryan brothers will be let down.
