In all the excitement over Robert Saleh's introduction, the Jets have also announced the following coaching hires, many of which had already been rumored:

There are still a few jobs to be filled, mainly on defense with linebackers and defensive backs not yet covered.

Bush was the defensive coordinator for the Texas in 2009 and 2010 while Saleh was an assistant linebackers coach.

Finally, the Jets also have to confirm their special teams coordinator. It's possible Brant Boyer could remain in the role.

We'll have more on these in due course.
