Jets flying in 49ers DC Robert Saleh for a second head-coaching interview

Jan 12, 2021 at 6:23 AM--


The first interview with the New York Jets must have gone well because the team has narrowed its list of head-coaching candidates, and San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh's name is on it. According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Jets are flying in Saleh for a second interview today.

The coach had a virtual interview with the team on Friday, January 8.


Saleh has taken part in virtual interviews with four other teams — the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Los Angeles Chargers. Today's interview with the Jets will be Saleh's first in-person discussion during the process.
