Douglas loves Saleh's integrity, passion
NY Jets Confidential|February/March 2021
QUESTION SESSION WITH GM JOE DOUGLAS

Q: What does Robert Saleh bring to the table as a coach?

A: Coach Saleh is an exceptional teacher, motivator and communicator. He has earned every opportunity he has gotten and made the most of each of them. Coach Saleh’s energy, knowledge and focus are contagious and will serve our team well as we continue to develop our culture, our foundation, and move this organization in the right direction.

Q: What made Saleh emerge as the top candidate?

A: We really canvassed the NFL and what kept coming back time and time again was what a great candidate Coach Saleh was. So when we talk about our criteria, and what we are looking for in a head coach, he checked all those boxes; the integrity, the passion, the ability to connect. Meeting him confirmed what everybody said about him.

Q: What stood out in Robert’s interviews with the team?

A: We were really impressed with his presence, his vision, what he wanted the identity of the team to look like, and his plan for the exact path to get there.

He wants to play fast, physical football. I like a lot of his mantras like, “All gas, no brake.”
