The Jets are dipping into their history for one head coaching candidate.

The team has requested permission to interview Saints secondary coach Aaron Glenn, according to the NFL Network. Glenn has been with the Saints since 2016. 

The 48-year-old is well known to Jets fans, who watched him play for Gang Green from 1994-2001. The Jets drafted Glenn in the first round (12th overall) in 1994 and the cornerback became one of their top players. Glenn went to the Pro Bowl twice with the Jets and had 24 interceptions in eight years with the team, tied for the fourth-most in franchise history.

Glenn went on to play for the Texans, Cowboys, Jaguars and Saints. He rejoined the Jets in 2012 in their scouting department. After two years with the Jets, he began his coaching career as the Browns assistant secondary coach in 2014-15 before going to New Orleans.

Glenn can’t interview with the Jets until after the Saints’ playoff game with the Bears on Sunday. 

The Jets began their interview process Wednesday with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. They have also requested interviews with Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Titans offense coordinator Arthur Smith, Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley.
