It was reported earlier last week that Giants OLBs coach Bret Bielema had “definite interest” in the Michigan State head coaching vacancy, but the Spartans filled it with Mel Tucker.
Well, now Bielema could be filling Tucker’s vacancy left at Colorado.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Bielema is interviewing for that head coaching job with the Buffaloes.
Bielema, whose job with the Giants currently is also senior defensive assistant, has head coaching experience in college. He led Wisconsin (2006-2012) and Arkansas (2013-2017) before heading to the NFL to join the Patriots in 2018.
If Bielema were to leave, who should fill his spot on Joe Judge’s staff. Well, when Bielema was showing interest in the MSU job, ESPN’s Jenna Laine reported that Bucs head coach Bruce Arians said Amos Jones, his assistant special teams coordinator, “may interview with the Giants.”
As SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano points out, Jones was the special teams coordinator and linebackers coach at Mississippi State when Judge served as a grad assistant for his alma mater. He could definitely be an interviewee if Bielema gets the Colorado job.
