The Daily News has learned that Jets special teams coach Ben Kotwica interviewed with the Redskins Tuesday to be a part of Jay Gruden’s staff.
Kotwica is one of at least a half-dozen Jets’ assistants who are not under contract for the 2014 season. A league source told the News that the Jets have offered Kotwica a contract. The assistants without deals for 2014 are free to test the waters and explore opportunities with other teams.
Kotwica interviewed for the Army head coaching job late in the regular season, but wasn’t offered the position at his alma mater.
The Jets are currently negotiating a contract extension for Rex Ryan, who is signed through 2014, but no new deal has been finalized.
