New head coach Chip Kelly will be replacing all three coordinators from last season as Mornhinweg landed in New York, former defensive coordinator Todd Bowles got the same role with the Arizona Cardinals and former special teams coordinator Bobby April joined Oakland’s staff in the same capacity.
Mornhinweg was the head coach of the Detroit Lions from 2001–2002 and the Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator from 2006-2012. In New York, Mornhinweg takes over an offense that finished 14th in the AFC in scoring and 15th in yards. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez finished next-to-last in the conference in passer rating. Mornhinweg masterminded the Eagles offense in the final six games of the 2006 season, and into the NFC Playoffs. Coach Andy Reid gave Mornhinweg the play calling responsibilities after the Eagles’ disastrous loss to the Indianapolis Colts, 45-21. The Eagles won all six games, employing a more balanced run/pass attack. The wins included an unprecedented three consecutive December divisional road games, all with a back-up quarterback, Jeff Garcia. It was the only time Reid yielded play calling responsibilities, a role Mornhinweg continued through the 2007 season
