The New York Jets and Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith are reportedly set to have dinner Wednesday night.

With Robert Saleh off to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles, the New York Jets are set to turn their attention to the next man up in the process.

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith will have dinner with Jets brass Wednesday night, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

Smith, 38, is a candidate nearly every team with an opening is interested in to some degree. Smith’s offense finished third in yards and second in rushing yards this past season. Stud running back Derrick Henry won his second-straight rushing title.

He joined the Titans in 2011 as a defensive quality control coach. He moved to the offensive side the following season and parlayed that into an offensive line and tight ends assistant tag in 2013. After a three-year stint as the team’s tight end coach (2016-2018), he took over as the offensive coordinator in 2019.

According to Rapoport, Smith is scheduled to meet with the Eagles on Thursday and the Detroit Lions on Friday. What everybody needs to keep in mind are the limitations of this coach-hiring season. Forced to interview virtually the first time, teams don’t have the chance to really get to know these guys until they visit in person for a second interview.

Smith becomes the second man to make a visit to Northern New Jersey. It’s expected that the Jets aren’t done with their second round of interviews. Expect more names to surface as soon as Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
