This should not be the reason the Jets hire a new offensive coordinator.
Talking about the candidate’s ability to attract a veteran QB to the Jets.
You hire a great play-caller, a great offensive chess player, a great offensive teacher, not a QB recruiter.
Last year, the Denver Broncos reportedly hired a head coach because they thought he could get Aaron Rodgers to follow him. It didn’t happen.
The concept of hiring a guy to get a certain QB to follow him should be way down on the list. Way down.
Just hire a great candidate to handle the job – running the offense.
Let the GM focus on finding a QB. An NFL OC’s job is to do a great job coaching the offense; he’s not a college recruiting coordinator.
