Jets name Thomas McGaughey special teams coordinator

The Jets have named Thomas McGaughey as their new special teams coordinator.

McGaughey served as the special teams coordinator, and assisted with the defensive line, for Louisiana State University for three seasons before landing with the Jets.

He was the assistant special teams coordinator for the New York Giants from 2007-2010, winning a Super Bowl with them. Before the Giants, he was on the coaching staff of the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos and coached at his alma mater, the University of Houston.

He can be followed on Twitter at @CoachTMcGaughey.

A special teams coach who also helps out with the DL? I figure Rex and this guy meeting was like that scene in Step Brothers...



Rex: "DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS!?" 


McGaughey: "YUP!"

Well the Jets will get some inside information on several highly regarded Draft prospects from McGaughey!

Lamin Barrow ILB, Odell Beckham Jr WR, Jarvis Landry WR, Craig Loston S, Zach Mettenberger QB, Jeremy Hill RB, Alfred Bleu RB, Trai Turner OG are all prospects the Jets might be interested in so every little bit of information can help!

Hopefully Idzik won't let Folk go anywhere, and we score this guy a kickoff return star in the draft!!


I'd like to see this guy succeed!!

@a57se He likely also has some insights into all of the SEC draft prospects...not a bad conference to have intelligence on.

Odell Beckmen 5' 10" tall weight 210lbs..A stud.


Trai Turner one of the top guards in the league 2nd round pic I guessing.

@a57se  looks like both beckham and landry both have good hands

Yeah, great point. I was watching some film on Beckham today, really liked what I saw. Seemed excel in all phases of the game.

@harold  Probably decided a while ago but waited to announce it until college signing day was over.  Today a pretty big day in college football where top prospect high schoolers commit to colleges.

Beckham is about 190lbs wet.  If he is 205 he did a lot of bulking up.

@rstysanchz @a57se 

I think he is one of the top WR's in the draft and hope we can get him at 18 because there is no way he is around after the first round unless he bombs the combine.

I really like the way Beckham attacks the ball now...he didn't do that as much in 2012. Cam Cameron and his crew did some good coaching there.

I agree thats one of the things I like about him too. He just seems really tough and gritty. Cant have too many of those guys on the team
