Jets announce Mornhinweg, Thurman as coordinators

  •  

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has officially announced the expected hirings of Marty Mornhinweg as his offensive coordinator and Dennis Thurman as the team's defensive coordinator.

Ryan also announced Thursday that David Lee was hired as the team's quarterbacks coach, replacing Matt Cavanaugh, and Tim McDonald will be the Jets' defensive backs coach.

Mornhinweg, who replaced the fired Tony Sparano, was an assistant for 10 years with the Philadelphia Eagles, including the last seven as offensive coordinator.

Thurman was promoted from defensive backs coach, and replaces Mike Pettine, who was hired as Buffalo's defensive coordinator.

Lee, most recently the Bills' quarterbacks coach, played a key role in establishing Miami's wildcat offense a few years ago. McDonald, a former NFL safety, was Fresno State's secondary coach last season.
