NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets have interviewed former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell for their head coaching vacancy.

The meeting was announced by the team Monday. It marks the fifth known interview New York has conducted since firing coach Todd Bowles last Sunday.

The Jets met with Dallas defensive backs coach/passing game coordinator Kris Richard on Sunday. Richard also interviewed with Miami and Tampa Bay for their vacancies.

New York has also interviewed former Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy , Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and former Miami coach Adam Gase.

The 63-year-old Caldwell was most recently Detroit’s head coach, going 36-28 with the Lions from 2014-17. He also was 26-22 in three years with the Colts from 2009-11, including a Super Bowl appearance in the 2009 season. Caldwell also met with Cleveland and Green Bay for their openings.
