Jets hire Arizona DC Todd Bowles as new head coach

ESPN - [Full Article]

The New York Jets have replaced one defensive guru with another, tapping former Arizona Cardinals coordinator Todd Bowles as Rex Ryan's successor.

Bowles told ESPN's Josina Anderson in a text message that he was taking the job.

The news came less than four hours after the Jets announced the hiring of Mike Maccagnan as their general manager. Bowles will receive a four-year contract, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
