Who could replace Todd Bowles on the Jets’ sideline?

Mike McCarthy, former Packers coach  

A Super Bowl winner who did excellent work with Brett Favre and then Aaron Rodgers, McCarthy is under consideration in Cleveland, where he has connections with general manager John Dorsey and assistant GM Eliot Wolf.

Matt LaFleur, Titans offensive coordinator

LaFleur did a solid job calling plays under first-year head coach Mike Vrabel.

Jim Caldwell, former Lions and Colts coach

Fired by the Lions after the 2017 season, he took a year off and is ready to return to the sideline. Caldwell took the Indianapolis Colts to the Super Bowl when Peyton Manning was the team’s quarterback.

Eric Bieniemy, Chiefs offensive coordinator

Andy Reid calls the plays for the Chiefs’ offense, but Bieniemy, a former NFL running back, was elevated to offensive coordinator this year after serving as running backs coach.

Zac Taylor, Rams quarterbacks coach

Taylor has done excellent work in developing Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Working under Sean McVay, he uses advanced passing concepts.

Todd Monken,  Bucs offensive coordinator

Monken has been the offensive coordinator under Dirk Koetter, who was fired on Sunday. Despite quarterback issues with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay finished 12th in the NFL in points and third in total yards.

Kris Richard, Cowboys passing game coordinator/defensive backs coach

A former NFL defensive back, Richard joined the Cowboys in 2018 after three years as defensive coordinator under Pete Carroll in Seattle.
