The Jets have a new offensive line coach.
Dave DeGuglielmo, who was the Dolphins offensive line coach the past three seasons, has been named to the position, the Jets announced today. He replaces Bill Callahan, who left earlier this month to take over as the Cowboys offensive coordinator/offensive line coach after his contract expired.
DeGuglielmo's tutelage aided in left tackle Jake Long being named to his fourth straight Pro Bowl this year -- though he's injured and won't play -- and Miami running back Reggie Bush topping the 1,000-yard plateau for the first time in his six-year career.
But the Dophins allowed 52 sacks this past season, which was 12 more than the Jets yielded.
Prior to joining the Dolphins, DeGuglielmo spent five seasons with the Giants, where he was the assistant offensive line coach from 2005-08. DeGuglielmo was Lou Holtz's offensive line/tight ends coach at the University of South Carolina from 1999-2003. He started his coaching career at Boston College as a graduate assistant prior to stints at Boston University and UConn.
DeGuglielmo goes way back with Jets new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. He was an All-New England first-team selection as a guard and center at Boston University from 1987-90, where Sparano was his offensive line coach for his final three seasons.
