According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Jets have done “extensive” homework on former Texans OC George Godsey and view him as a “strong candidate” for their offensive coordinator vacancy.
- Rapoport adds that Godsey has received strong recommendations for the job.
Rich Cimini of ESPN first reported that the Jets were showing interest in Godsey and could interview him for their vacant offensive coordinator position as soon as Tuesday at the Senior Bowl.
The Jets have also interviewed Saints WRs coach John Morton for the position.
Houston and Godsey agreed to mutually agreed to part ways last week and Texans HC Bill O’Brien has since agreed to take over as the team’s offensive coordinator.
Godsey, 38, began his NFL coaching career with the Patriots back in 2011 as an offensive assistant. He worked his way up to tight ends coach before he was hired by the Texans as their quarterbacks coach in 2014. A year later, Houston elevated him to offensive coordinator.
In 2016, the Texans ranked No. 28 in total points, No. 29 in total yards, No. 8 in rushing yards and No. 29 in passing yards.
