Since Marinelli is the Buccanneer's assistant head coach, the team's front office must grant him permission to talk to other teams about all coaching jobs other than head coach. So It doesn't look like Marinelli will be coming to the Jets because the team isn't interested in giving Tampa Bay any compensation for the coach.
So now the leading candidate for the job is Tennessee linebacker coach Gunther Cunningham who will interview with the Jets on Tuesday. He and Jets coach Herman Edwards worked together in Kansas City and are very comfortable with each other.
