MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf will join Charley Casserly as a consultant for the New York Jets in the likely event the team is searching for a new head coach and general manager, a league source told ESPN.com Sunday.
Technically, Wolf and Casserly --- both members of the NFL's career advisory -- won't be hired until owner Woody Johnson fires Rex Ryan and/or John Idzik. Both men are expected to be replaced, possibly as soon as Monday. In Ryan's case, Johnson may let the new GM determine the coach's fate, ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen reported.
Casserly reached out to Wolf last week. Both men are highly respected in NFL circles. Wolf actually worked as the Jets' personnel director in 1990-1991 under GM Dick Steinberg. Wolf is best known for rebuilding the Packers and winning a Super Bowl in Green Bay.
