The New York Jets could be sifting through the trash to fill their vacant coaching job.

ESPN’s Rich Cimini has added a new name to the pool of potential offensive coordinators for the Jets: Pat Shurmur.

He said the name of the former Denver Broncos coordinator has been doing the rumor mill. Shurmur was a Broncos OC for two years from 2020-2021 but was fired along with Vic Fangio at the end of that season.

Shurmur decided to take a year off from coaching in 2022 and appears poised to return to the mix in 2023.

Shurmur has twice had the honor of being an NFL head coach during his illustrious professional career.

His first hit at the pinata came back in 2011 when he served as head coach for the Cleveland Browns for two seasons.

After a short time he was thrown into the unemployment fund. It would be another five years before he got another chance as head coach in the NFL, this time with the New York Giants.

Even with Big Blue, he only lasted two seasons and then got his pink slip. While his history as head of the entire operation has been incredibly sordid, Shurmur has delivered interesting results in a smaller and specific role on a coaching staff.

The 57-year-old, who will turn 58 at the start of the 2023 season, has been coaching football for over 33 years. This includes both college and NFL experience.

Since 1999, Shurmur has trained exclusively at the NFL level with six different teams.

Notably, Shurmur has served as the league’s offensive coordinator on four different NFL rosters for a total of nine years.

After a year away from the game, Shurmur found himself back in NFL circles in this coaching cycle.

The Washington commanders announced on Social media that they interviewed Shurmur for the opening of their vacant offensive coordinator Tuesday, Jan. 17.
