Now that Rex Ryan has been fired we should bring in John Blake as an assistant line coach. Player development is his thing.

 

March 16, 2016

Blake will be beginning his second NFL stint. During Blake's first NFL coaching stint, he served as the Dallas Cowboys defensive line coach from 1993 to 1995. Under Blake's guidance, Cowboys defensive lineman Leon Lett, Charles Haley, Russell Maryland and Tony Tolbert all earned Pro Bowl honors. Dallas' 1994 defensive front particularly earned high marks, as the Cowboys led the league in rush defense and the entire defensive unit was the NFL's top ranked defense and finished second in the NFL in sacks.

In addition to his NFL experience, Blake spent more thank 20 seasons coaching on the collegiate level - working with future first round picks Ndamukong Suh, Robert Quinn, Quinton Coples, Adam Carriker and Kentwan Balmer.

Following his time leading the Sooners' program, Blake spent four years as the director of a professional develelopment camp called "A Chance To Advance Football Camp." Among his clients were Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor, New Orleans Saints defensive end Darren Howard and Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney among many others.

Blake reemerged in the college coaching ranks in 2003 as Mississippi State's defensive line coach before going on to hold the same position for the Nebraska Husker (2004-06) and the North Carolina Tar Heels (2007-10).

Following his time with the Tar Heels, Blake spent time working with and developing current NFL players including Leonard Williams, Eddie Goldman, Jason Pierre-Paul and current Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes.

He definitely has the experience but a lot of the players he coached were good anyway. And most of the time in the league it's about connections. DQ recently spoke very highly of Bryant Young on the radio. He coached him in San Fran and worked with him at FL. I think he would be his #1 choice with Mike Phair his 2nd.
