There are more candidates to be interviewed for a second time.
The Jets brought Robert Saleh into the building on Monday night and eventually kept him overnight. Saleh left the building without a contract, much to the chagrin of Jets fans.
Per Connor Rogers of Bleacher Report, Saleh leaving the building had nothing to do with any disagreement from both sides. Rogers mentions both sides are going through the process.
After his meeting with the Jets, Robert Saleh flew to Philadelphia to meet with the Eagles for an interview for their head coaching vacancy.
The Jets met with Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith this morning. They also went out to dinner last night.
Both candidates are in high demand.
Robert Saleh is the candidate with more NFL experience. He’s been in the NFL since 2005. He began his NFL coaching career as a defensive intern for the Houston Texans. Saleh was hired as the San Francisco 49ers’ defensive coordinator in 2017. His defenses have ranked 25th, 13th, second, and fifth during his tenure. Saleh is someone who relates to his players and seems to be a players coach.
Arthur Smith has become a hot name since he turned around Ryan Tannehill‘s career. Tannehill is back to being a solid pocket passer. Though, there comes some cons. Smith’s offenses have always ranked middle of the pack. Nothing special. The Titans offense is solely based on Derrick Henry and whenever the defense figures him out, the passing game is put under more pressure and seems to not work.
