As the #Jets narrow their list of head coaching candidates, they are flying in #49ers DC Robert Saleh for a second interview today, per me and @MikeGarafolo. The first known finalist for the NYJ job, and there will be others likely in person, as well.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 12, 2021
Saleh's first interview for New York's head-coaching vacancy was last week. The 41-year-old has been San Francisco's defensive coordinator since Kyle Shanahan took over as head coach in 2017.
Saleh has been one of the NFL's hottest head-coaching candidates so far. He has also interviewed with the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Chargers.
The Jets have also reportedly interviewed Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, New Orleans Saints defensive backs coach Aaron Glenn, Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley, Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady and Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen.
