Jets interview Cunningham and lose Canales

The Jets interview with Gunther Cunningham that was scheduled for Tuesday was pushed back to Wednesday. We hear the interview went well, and it looks like the Jets will move fast to lock up Cunningham. <BR><BR>

An announcement could be made in the next few days. Cunningham, the former head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, was the team's defensive coordinator prior to that. He has worked as the Tennessee Titans linebacker coach the last three years.

On the day Cunningham was interviewing, the Jets lost one of their best assistant coaches when Mike Canales left to take a job as the offensive coordinator at the University of Arizona. Canales did an excellent job in his one year as the Jets receivers coach, and was instrumental in the emergence of Santana Moss.
