Well, can’t see most of us didn’t see this coming. Maurice didn’t work out in either of his last two stops, what makes them think this will be any different? Perhaps organization felt they needed a name fans know?

They probably waited too long to do this. I believe Noel is a good X’s and O’s coach, but apparently that’s not the type of coach the Jets need now.

It was time for the Jets to make a change, but Paul Maurice is an odd choice.  He hasn’t had too much success lately and there are better coaches out there.

Noel was a bad hiring to begin with.
