According to New York sports radio WFAN, the Jets have made contact with Bill Cowher's agent and the two sides have agreed to meet and discuss the coaching vacancy.
It is not known what demands Cowher has for the job, i.e. money, years, front office positions; but, those issues will be brought up when the two sides meet.
According to ESPN, Cowher wants to have power in deciding who the General Manager will be, and the Jets, apparently. are more than willing to accomidate his desires. ESPN also reports that Cowher may address the situation on Sunday when he goes on the air for CBS's coverage of the Miami Dolphins/Baltimore Ravens Wild Card game.
Other candidates include Giants Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnoulu and former Chargers Head Coach Marty Shottenheimer, whose son, Brian, is the Jets Offensive Coordinator.
