Jets’ first coaching candidates emerge with interviews requested
The Jets’ coaching search is taking them into their own backyard.
Gang Green has requested to interview Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham, according to NFL Network, after firing coach Adam Gase on Sunday night.
Graham, a 41-year-old Yale product, has garnered plenty of attention this season, helming the Giants’ 17-12 upset of the Seahawks in Week 13. Under his watch this season, the Giants finished ranked 12th in overall defense and ninth in scoring defense.
Graham joined Joe Judge’s Giants staff — his second stint with the team — this season after spending time with the Patriots, Packers, and Dolphins. Graham is expected to be a hot commodity as head coaching jobs open up around the NFL, with six vacancies already.
Likely joining the Jets in pursuit of Graham — who safety Logan Ryan once referred to as “the Black Picasso” for his defensive exploits — are the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, and Los Angeles Chargers.
