Add a familiar name to the Jets’ list of potential candidates.

New York put in a request to interview Saints secondary coach and former NFL cornerback Aaron Glenn, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The interview will have to take place next week following the Saints’ playoff game against the Bears this weekend.

Glenn is an up and coming candidate in league circles and has been praised for the job he’s done with New Orleans’ secondary, which has become one of the better units in the NFL.

Glenn played cornerback for the Jets from 1994-2001. He is one of the better cornerbacks in franchise history, and a popular one at that. He also played for the Texans, Cowboys, Jaguars and Saints.

After a brief stint with the Jets as a personnel scout from 2012-13, Glenn got his start in coaching. He served as the Browns assistant defensive backs coach from 2014-15 before taking the role he currently has with the Saints, which he’s had since 2016.

Having played under Bill Parcells and coached under Sean Payton, Glenn is certainly a unique candidate who has learned from two CEO-type head coaches.
