ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Jets and Chan Gailey still haven’t reached an agreement regarding their offensive coordinator position, and there are now questions as to whether or not it will get done at all.
According to Schefter, the future for Gailey and the Jets remains “uncertain” at this point in time and the two sides are reportedly “at a crossroads.”
“Everybody made it seem like a done deal – everybody except me,” Gailey said Monday.
Schefter adds that three NFL teams have also spoken to Gailey, and he’s believed to be weighing his options.
Gailey reportedly wants to find the “right team in the right situation,” which implies that there could be some concerns from his end about running the Jets’ offense next year.
Jason La Canfora mentioned on Sunday that it sounded like the Jets hiring Gailey “might not be a slam dunk” like many had assumed.
With so many teams targeting offensive coordinators right now, the Jets could have a difficult time securing some of the top coordinator candidates.
La Canfora reports that the Jets have begun to reach out to other offensive coordinator candidates, so we should have a better idea of who they’re considering in the coming days.
We’ll have more updates regarding the Jets and their defensive coordinator position as the news is available.
