TransactionsEdit

Coaching changesEdit

  • The contracts of wide receivers coach Henry Ellard, outside linebackers coach Jeff Weeks and assistant head coach/offensive line coach Bill Callahan expired after the conclusion of the 2011 season and subsequently they were not retained. Ellard and Callahan, when offered contract extensions prior to the expiration of their contracts, refused to re-sign.[1]
  • Mike Smith was promoted from his position as a defensive intern to the outside linebackers coach, replacing Jeff Weeks.[1] Smith later left the team to become the linebackers coach and co-coordinator at West Virginia.[2] He returned to the Jets two weeks later after discovering his responsibilities with West Virginia were not the same as the team had first indicated.[3]
  • Tony Sparano was hired as the new offensive coordinator, replacing Brian Schottenheimer on January 11, 2012.[4]
  • Sanjay Lal was hired as the new wide receivers coach on January 13, 2012.[5]
  • Dave DeGuglielmo was hired as the new offensive line coach on January 24, 2012.[6]
  • On February 13, the team named Karl Dunbar as the new defensive line coach. In addition strength and conditioning coaching assistants Justus Galac and Paul Ricci were hired.[7]
  • Defensive line coach Mark Carrier left the team to accept the position as the Cincinnati Bengals' defensive backs coach.[8]

The Jets' plan to start Greg McElroy was changed due to a concussion he'd suffered. As a result Mark Sanchez started and managed 205 passing yards but was intercepted by Bryan Scott in the first quarter for the Bills' first touchdown of the game. The Jets led 9-7 in the second quarter before the Bills scored three unanswered touchdowns, including one from ex-Jet Brad Smith. Tim Tebow suited up for the game but was never used. It was the first win for the Bills in the rivalry since 2009.
