Jets Fire OL Coach Dave DeGuglielmo

By Alan Schechter

Offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo is the latest casualty from the Jets’ coaching staff.

Another move to get away from 2012 has been made official this morning.

The Jets have fired their offensive line coach Dave Deguglielmo, and he will be replaced internally by tight ends Coach Mike Devlin. We have reported this here in the past as the move that was set to be made, Brian Costello of the New York Post confirmed the move through Twitter this morning.

In my opinion, it’s an interesting move, because the offensive line was starting to improve undger “Gugs” scheme towards the end of the 2012 season. You might have thought that the Jets would continue with his teachings, to see how much better the offensive line would get, but they have decided to go another way.

Since Devlin coached the tight ends, it’s hard to say whether he will continue with a scheme similar to Dave’s or go his own way with the line. He did a good job with the tight ends, so to me there is no doubt regarding his ability as a position coach. Will he be able to translate to the offensive line? Time will only give us that answer.
