According to a report by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets are interested in former Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

Mehta tweeted:
I'm told former Eagles OC Marty Mornhinwig is on Jets' OC list. I believe he's interviewing as early as today. nyj Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) January 11, 2013Mornhinweg spent the past 10 seasons with the Eagles, eight of which he served as the team's offensive coordinator.

In 2012, the Eagles' offense finished 29th in the NFL in scoring with 17.5 points per game, ahead of only the Jaguars, Cardinals and Chiefs.

Kiffin named Cowboys D-coordinator
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have hired former Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin as the replacement for Rob Ryan.

The team announced the move on its website Friday, a day after the 72-year-old Kiffin was at team headquarters to interview with coach Jason Garrett and owner Jerry Jones.

The hiring of Kiffin means the Cowboys will switch back to the 4-3 defense after going to the 3-4 under Bill Parcells in 2005.

Kiffin hasn't coached in the NFL since ending a 13-year run in Tampa in 2008. He spent the past few years coaching in college with his son, Lane Kiffin, at Tennessee and Southern California.

At Tampa, Kiffin's defenses frequently were among the league's best, and the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl with him after the 2002 season.

NFLPA: No investigation into RG3 injury
WASHINGTON -- The NFL players' union does not plan a formal investigation into how the Washington Redskins medical staff handled Robert Griffin III's knee injury.

The NFL Players Association said Friday that they were satisfied with a report received from the Redskins detailing the procedures used by team physician James Andrews and other staff on the sidelines.

Griffin had reconstructive ACL surgery Wednesday after reinjuring his right knee in Sunday's playoff loss to Seattle. He also strained a ligament in the knee last month against Baltimore.

The NFLPA's informal inquiry focused on the quality of medical care Griffin received. The union does not have authority to investigate coaching decisions -- including whether Redskins coach Mike Shanahan should have left Griffin in either game after it was clear the quarterback was hurt.
