The New York Jets officially named Marty Mornhinweg as their new offensive coordinator on Wednesday. Mornhinweg spent the past 10 seasons with the Eagles including six as the playcaller for the offense.
New head coach Chip Kelly will be replacing all three coordinators from last season as Mornhinweg landed in New York, former defensive coordinator Todd Bowles got the same role with the Arizona Cardinals and former special teams coordinator Bobby April joined Oakland's staff in the same capacity.
Mornhinweg orchestrated the offenses that set the franchise record for points scored (439, 2010) and net yards (6,386, 2011). In 2010, Mornhinweg was also instrumental in the rebirth of Michael Vick, who was named the AP Comeback Player of the Year. Mornhinweg was honored that season by Pro Football Weekly as the NFL Assistant Coach of the Year. In all, Mornhinweg has guided the five best yardage outputs and four of the top five scoring seasons in team history.
In New York, Mornhinweg takes over an offense that finished 14th in the AFC in scoring and 15th in yards. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez finished next-to-last in the conference in passer rating.
