The New York Jets added two high-profile candidates to their search for a new offensive coordinator to replace Tony Sparano on Monday. They interviewed former Baltimore Ravens coordinator Cam Cameron on Monday and are interested in former Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur, the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta reported.
The Jets fired Sparano last Tuesday after the Jets finished an abysmal season ranked 30th in the NFL in total offense. Their search includes at least five reported candidates to replace the outgoing Sparano.
The Jets already interviewed Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg last week, Mehta reported. They are also interested in Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton — who will interview on Tuesday — and Cincinnati Bengals assistant Hue Jackson.
The Ravens fired Cameron, who was in his fifth season with the team, in December after a prolonged offensive slump. Cameron was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2007, where he suffered through a disastrous 1-15 season at the helm.
Before being fired by the Browns after this season, Shurmur was the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams from 2009-10, where he led an impressive offensive turnaround.
