Jets interview Bucs offensive coordinator Todd Monken
NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets have interviewed Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken for their head coaching job.
The team completed its meeting with Monken on Tuesday. It marks the sixth interview New York has announced since firing Todd Bowles last week.
The Jets have also met with former Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy, Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, former Miami coach Adam Gase, former Indianapolis and Detroit coach Jim Caldwell and Dallas defensive backs coach/passing game coordinator Kris Richard. According to several published reports, New York also spoke with Baylor coach Matt Rhule and former USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury, who was hired Tuesday as Arizona’s coach, but the Jets didn’t announce either meeting.
The 52-year-old Monken has been Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator since 2016 after being Southern Miss’ head coach from 2013-15. He was Jacksonville’s wide receivers coach from 2007-10, and has had various stops at the college level.
