Jets Fire Defensive-Line Coach, Possibly for Talking Behind Rex Ryan’s Back

Kerry Locklin.

The Jets have fired (or, technically, dismissed) defensive-line coach Kerry Locklin, possibly scapegoating him for the team's struggling defense. Though sources tell Rich Cimini that Locklin, in his first pro job, was a "token" coach with no real responsibility who had been bad-mouthing head coach Rex Ryan behind his back. So it could be that, too. [NYDN]
