The New York Jets are wasting no time in their search for a new head coach following the dismissal of Rex Ryan on Monday.

Making moves

Reports today suggest that the franchise, who finished the 2014 season with a disappointing 4-12 record, have already requested interviews with no less than five individuals currently working in various capacities at NFL teams across the league.

With those teams seeking to make head coaching appointments having a week long window to interview those employed with franchises involved in the playoffs, it is no surprise that four of the five names mentioned come from the staff currently planning for postseason action.

Adam Schefter was the first to reveal those the Jets hope to speak to in the coming days.

Who's who?

The Seattle Seahawks, after back to back successful seasons, will face a fight to keep hold of their staff. Both Dan Quinn and Tom Cable have been integral to the Seahawks rise to the top of the NFL.

With Ryan having been known for his defensive capabilities it is interesting to note that, alongside Quinn, the Jets will interview one other defensive coordinators in Cardinals' Todd Bowles.

Gary Kubiak meanwhile is no stranger to the head coaching role having been in charge of the Houston Texans between 2006-2013 - leading the team to three winning seasons in that time.

Reich meanwhile played quarterback for the Jets in 1996 and has works his way up to an OC role in San Diego via spells with the Colts and Cardinals.

Jets changes

As well as requiring a new head coach, the New York Jets are also on the hunt for a new General Manager following the firing of John Idzik after just one year in the role.

It had been suggested that the team would look to line up a GM before making a decision on a head coach for the 2015 season but it certainly looks like the franchise is getting in while they can to discuss the opportunity with a number of candidates who are likely to take phone calls from several franchises in the coming months.
