Everywhere you turn, people are writing that Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is the leading candidate for the Jets head coaching job. It's simply not true, according to two team sources.
Two high-ranking two officials told Jets Confidential that it's too early in the process to annoint a "leading candidate."
Both officials have no idea why reporters are claiming Spagnuolo is the leading candidate.
This doesn't mean Spagnuolo won't get the job, but he's not the "leading candidate" at this point, especially since several candidates, including Baltimore assistant Rex Ryan, haven't interviewed with the team yet.
