Cam Cameron, Jets talk OC job

  • ESPN.com news services | January 14, 2013

Cam Cameron is interviewing Monday for the New York Jets' vacant offensive coordinator position, sources told ESPN.

The Jets are looking to replace Tony Sparano, who was fired after the team's offense finished 30th overall during a disappointing 6-10 season.

Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton also will interview for the position this week, CBSSports.com reported.

The Jets also have shown interest in former Eagles coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Bengals assistant Hue Jackson.

Jackson is interviewing for the Carolina Panthers' offensive coordinator position Monday, league sources told ESPN. Former Browns coach Pat Shurmur also is interviewing for the job Monday, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Jets coach Rex Ryan was on the same Ravens staff as Jackson and Cameron in 2008, so the familiarity factor would seem to give them an edge. All three have experience as a coordinator and head coach. Cameron was the head coach of the Dolphins in 2007 but was fired after one season. Jackson was the head coach of the Raiders in 2011 but was fired after one season.

In Cameron's five seasons as the Ravens' coordinator, Baltimore was ranked as high as 13th and as low as 22nd in total offense. He helped develop quarterback Joe Flacco, but was dismissed after a Week 14 loss to the Redskins.

ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter and ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini contributed to this report.
