No, it's not the same situation as the Giants. Both Coughlin and Reese were already there. And Reese didn't come in under the same circumstances as whoever the Jets hire. Not at all comparable.

What's more, there's nothing to suggest that Reese wanted to replace Coughlin. And if the Jets want to attract someone like Polian, you can't tell a candidate of that stature that he can't hire his own coach.
