Rapoport: 49ers DC Robert Saleh a favorite for Jets’ head coach job

Jan 13, 2021 at 6:06 AM--


According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh is the favorite in the New York Jets' head-coaching search. He arrived in the New York area yesterday and continues to meet with the team's brass this morning during his second interview. He previously met virtually with the Jets.

"Some big meetings (today) including with the owner, Christopher Johnson from the New York Jets," Rapoport said of Saleh's meetings with the Jets on Good Morning Football. "Those things are going to continue this morning. The plan for the Jets is to bring in potentially other candidates for second interviews.

"As far as I can tell, no interviews are as-of-yet scheduled, which means Robert Saleh, if he is not the favorite for the Jets job, is certainly a favorite. Someone who is very popular on the interview circuit and someone who everyone believes will get a job this year."


Saleh has also met virtually with the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Los Angeles Chargers. The Philadelphia Eagles have also expressed interest in meeting with the defensive coordinator about their new head-coaching vacancy.

After a two-day interview this week, now-former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh landed the head-coaching job with the New York Jets. It wasn't too long ago that many expected Saleh to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions vacancy. Filling that role didn't happen, but there was no doubt that Saleh was likely on his way out of San Francisco. "I don't know what's wrong with people if they don't hire him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier this month. "I mean, he's as good as you can get, and he knows more about football, all three phases, and he's going to hire the best staff, knows about players, he knows what they're talking about, who doesn't know what they're talking about, and he also knows how to deal with people."
