Sparano Getting the Band Back Together?

With the Jets working to replenish some of their coaching positions, it sounds like the Jets (and Miami) are allowing Tony Sparano to interview some of his former staff from Miami according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

One coach who is not expected to be retained is offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo. […] Googs, as he is affectionately called in the building, is headed to the New York Jets with longtime friend Tony Sparano, according to a league source.

Googs has ties to Sparano and Coughlin that go back a long time, and would be trusted for his work there, but you’d imagine he’d get a lot of help over his shoulder from Sparano if required.

Other than Googs, the Jets might look to another potential target from the Dolphins … someone to become the passing coordinator for the Jets and who has a history with the team.

Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll had feelers from other teams after the regular season. The Dolphins denied him permission to interview elsewhere, according to a source. While his fate in Miami has not been sealed, it is a long shot he will return to the staff, according to a source.

Daboll may wind up in either Kansas City or with the New York Jets.

Daboll got into the NFL after working for Nick Saban back in his Michigan State days and got a personal recommendation from Saban to his friend, Bill Belichick.  Daboll you’ll remember was the QB Coach under Eric Mangini in 2007 and 2008 for the Jets, back when Brian Schottenheimer seemed a lock to become a head coach somewhere else and the Jets were looking for an insurance plan for his chair.  Daboll coordinated the offense in Cleveland for Mangini and then in Miami for Sparano.
