John Fox rejects New York Jets after leaving Denver Broncos

It seems that beggars really can be choosers. Well, maybe it's a bit harsh to call John Fox a beggar as he will be in demand, but the former Denver Broncos head coach has definitely decided to reject one team's approach. Today it was revealed that Fox has rejected the chance to interview for the vacant New York Jets head coaching post.

According to reports from Adam Schefter, Fox will not be returning to New York as he served as the defensive co-ordinator of the Jets rivals, the New York Giants between 1997 and 2001.

It seems then that Fox either has absolutely no interest in joining a team that is arguably the most dysfunctional in the whole of the National Football League, or that he has better offers from another team right now. Both are in plat in all honestly when it comes to the Jets, who really have been a complete dumpster fire of an organization for the past few years.

The only team to have hired a head coach recently is the Buffalo Bills, who brought in the former Jets boss Rex Ryan following Doug Marrone's shock resignation from the side. That leaves the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders as the other teams that currently boast vacancies that the former Carolina Panthers head coach Fox could be set to land at.

Who knows, maybe one team has already expressed a huge interest in Fox as soon as he was let go last night by the Broncos and they have given him a wink or a nudge that he's a shoe in for the job. That's how these things go a lot of the time in the NFL.

One thing is for sure though, John Fox will almost certainly start the 2015 season as a head coach somewhere.
