The Jets need not waste any more time looking for a head coach - or coordinators.

Comedian Larry David, an avid fan, volunteered to help Wednesday during an appearance on Howard Stern's satellite radio program to promote his upcoming Broadway show, "Fish in the Dark."

"I think just with a little studying, I could be a tremendous offensive coordinator - and defensive coordinator," he said. "I see many things that I know I can fix."

His credentials?

"When I was a kid [in Brooklyn] and we used to play football in the parking lot, I would design very good plays," he said. "Why couldn't I do that? Other people do it. Why not me?"

On defense, the co-creator and executive producer of "Seinfeld" said, "Believe me a back would not be open in the flat to get a pass if I was defensive coordinator. That guy would be covered."

David also said, "As long as I'm doing offense and defense, I think I could be a head coach."

Among his philosophies: rarely, if ever, punting.

"I would be a fantastic coach," he said. "It would be a lot of fun."
