Westhoff: "Why the hell wouldn't I be interested?"
Rich Cimini of the Daily News had an interesting nugget at the bottom of his article tonight.
Meanwhile, Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff told the Daily News he'd like to be considered for the job. He expressed his interest in a meeting earlier this week with Johnson.
"Why the hell wouldn't I be interested?" said Westhoff, one of the league's most respected special teams coaches. "I'm extremely qualified."
My man from BleacherReport.com, Angel Navedo, provides a compelling case for Westhoff as the next coach. I don't necessarily agree, but I definitely think he should be intereviewed. Remember, he's had various health problems over the years, and as a head coach, no one knows if he can handle the stress.
Still, Westhoff has had great success as the special teams coach, he's been around for a long time, and I could definitely see the idea of him as head coach growing on me.
