According to Tom Pelissero, the Jets have requested permission to interview Bills OC Brian Daboll for their head coaching job.
Daboll is expected to be one of the top coaching candidates this offseason thanks to his work with the Bills offense and QB Josh Allen.
The updated list of candidates for the Jets head coaching job includes:
- Bills OC Brian Daboll (Requested)
- Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith (Requested)
- Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus (Requested)
- Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy (Requested)
- Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale
- Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley
- Iowa State HC Matt Campbell
- Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh
- Florida HC Dan Mullen
Daboll, 45, began his NFL coaching career in 1997 with Williams & Mary. He spent a few years at Michigan State before being hired by the Patriots in 2000 as a defensive coaching assistant.
Daboll worked his way up to WRs coach before departing for a job with the Jets and eventually landing the offensive coordinator job in 2009. After short stints with the Browns, Dolphins, Chiefs and Patriots, Alabama hired him as their offensive coordinator.
From there, Daboll joined the Bills as their offensive coordinator for the 2018 season.
In 2020, the Bills’ offense ranked No. 2 in yards per game, No. 2 in points per game, No. 3 in passing yards per game and No. 20 in rushing yards per game.
