The Jets front office reportedly has three names on their list, and one of them will possibly be their next offensive coordinator.
After the expected firing of Tony Sparano, the team has narrowed their choices down to former Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Bengals assistant Hue Jackson, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

It's intertesting to note, as PFT's Mike Florio points out, that all three are former (and fired) head coaches, which brings into play the possibility that things don't go too well in 2013 and Rex Ryan gets the ax mid-season. Either candidate's head coaching experience would then come in handy.
As the team's coaching search narrows, the Jets' GM search looks to be expanding with the scheduled interviews with former Bears’ G.M. Jerry Angelo, Steelers’ Director of Football & Business Administration Omar Khan and Dolphins assistant general manager Brian Gaine, according to sources.
