The Jets are parting ways with Mike LaFleur, as we already know. However, there are more changes happening:
Saleh said the Jets have also moved on from OL coach and run game coordinator John Benton.— Ethan Greenberg (@EGreenbergJets) January 12, 2023
Saleh said the Jets also are looking for a wide receivers coach.— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) January 12, 2023
Saleh said he’s like to keep the QB, RB, TE coaches but there is “wiggle room”
The current receivers coach Miles Austin has been suspended for a year by the league anyway (although he is appealing) and Benton had a DUI during the offseason, so these were possibly factors in the changes being made. Austin apparently had some friction with a few of his charges, notably Keelan Cole, but Benton seemed to do a decent job considering how many injuries there were. Then again the running game did regress badly as the season went along and that's a big part of his role.
Speculation suggests that the Jets will not necessarily be operating the same system next season.
