When Jets hire new coordinator, they must avoid this thinking! Dan Leberfeld

And what kind of thinking is that?

“We are hiring this new offensive coordinator to fix Zach Wilson.”

Don’t do it.

Hire the best offensive coordinator, the best offensive chess player you can find, and if he happens to help Wilson turn it around, that is gravy.

When Woody Johnson hires a new offensive coordinator, he needs to avoid falling into that “We need a guy who can fix Zach” claptrap.

Just hire the best offensive-play caller you can find.

If he comes from the Shanahan tree, that would be ideal, so the young offensive players don’t have to start from square one with a new playbook. And it’s a system that works – just look at San Francisco.
