Here we have five characteristics that the New York Jets must find in their new head coach. Without that the team has a long wait for another title.
New York Jets fans, this is a very important time. Arguably it is the most important off-season the team has had in ages.
With Todd Bowles gone after four seasons, this choice of a new coach is going to be huge. It will go a long way to shape an important period in Jets history.
Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg, and to a lesser extent Kellen Clemens have one thing in common. They were hurt by very poor coaching around them. The team actually stunted the growth of each one of these players.
