Jets expected to add Casserly as consultant


The New York Jets reportedly want to hire former NFL general manager Charley Casserly as a consultant for potential changes in the team’s leadership.

Owner Woody Johnson wants someone with football expertise as he evaluates whether to fire coach Rex Ryan and/or GM John Idzik, according to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Jets are 3-12 this season, a year after they finished 8-8 in Idzik’s first year as GM. Since leading the Jets to the AFC title game in his first two seasons (2009 and 2010), Ryan has not had a winning season (25-38).

Casserly, who works as an analyst for NFL Network, is a former GM of the Washington Redskins (1989-99) and Houston Texans (2000-06).
