Confirmed that Bills have requested permission from Jets to speak with DC Mike Pettine for same position, as reported by @footballscoop
Looks like we will have a big overhaul at the three coordinator positions
More coaching changes may be on the horizon.
On the same day that the Bills formally introduced Doug Marrone as their new head coach, the Jets’ division rivals requested permission to speak to Mike Pettine for their defensive coordinator job, according to a league source. Pettine turned down Gang Green’s contract extension offer earlier in the season and is under contract only through the end of the January.
It would be a coup for the Bills if they could get the Jets’ play caller, whose unit finished in the Top 5 in total defense from 2009-2011 before ranking eighth this season. It’s unknown whether the Jets will grant permission.
