Jagodzinski Reportedly Interviews with the Jets

NFP is reporting that Jeff Jagodzinski has interviewed with the Jets.  This of course comes after he was forbidden from doing so by the BC AD (hey that's cool).  Supposedly, he has been told that if interviews for the Jets job, he is fired.

If all of this is true one of two things will happen: (1) he will become the new head coach for the Jets and will be assembling his new staff, or (2) he will be looking for a new job soon.

If it's the first scenario, it will be interesting to see whether he tries to hire some of the Packer assistants (or some of the recently fired coaches).  Given that coaches often hire assistants that they have history with it will be very telling if Jags doesn't try to hire some Packers.  On the other hand, if he does go after some of the Packer assistants, McCarthy will have even more slots to fill this month.  

If it's the second scenario and Jags is looking for a new job, it might be possible that Jags will return to the Packers in some capacity next year.  Perhaps if Campen is let go (like the rumors suggest) Jags will come back as the offensive line coach/assistant head coach for a year?

Just speculation at this point, but if all of these reports are true, I think there's a good possibility that the Jags situation will affect the Packers one way or the other.
