-- Jags himself denied it directly to the Globe.
-- Gene and Jags echoed that sentiment to NECN.
-- The Jets are also denying that Jags is candidate.
-- The Daily News captures the challenge of this whole situation:
The Jets wouldn't confirm or deny the interview. Know this: During recruiting season, college coaches will lie to their mother about prospective jobs. Could you imagine the fallout if the Jets hired Jagodzinski? Everybody would be saying Favre hired the coach.
My take: I don't think Jags will be the Jets coach. I think the timing is wrong, the situation in New York is too unsettled, and if he plays his cards right better opportunities will be waiting for him. But all that said, I don't think Jags is going to be a BC lifer. I see him in the Coughlin mode of using this as a stepping stone. But like Coughlin, I think he has a true appreciation for BC and will always be a friend of the program (unlike his predecessor). You can't begrudge him for listening to other offers. He's got to think about what is best for his family and his career. Let's just hope that as long as he's at BC we keep winning. If things do progress with this or other NFL openings, I'll dive deep into it like I did during the last coaching change.
