The Jets continued to round out their defensive coaching staff on Tuesday by hiring a linebacker coach.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Mike Rutenberg fill this position on the staff of head coach Robert Saleh.
Rutenberg worked with Saleh in the 49ers team last season and with the Jaguars earlier in their careers. He was their specialist in defensive passing games. He was on the Jaguars staff from 2013 to 2019 and Saleh worked in Jacksonville from 2014 to 2016.
The Jets also hired safety coach Marquand Manuel and assistant defensive coach / cornerback Tony Oden on Tuesday. Oden was also on staff for the 49ers during the 2020 season while Manuel worked for the Eagles.
