The NFL hiring season is about to heat up, but Aaron Glenn isn’t the least bit concerned with whether his name will be called in the coming weeks.
Glenn, in his first season as Detroit Lions defensive coordinator, said he is only focused on his current job heading into Sunday’s season finale with the Green Bay Packers.
“Very simple answer,” Glenn said Thursday. “I want to be the best coordinator the Lions ever had, and that’s all I think about.”
Glenn was one of at least nine coaches to interview for the New York Jets head coaching job last season and is considered a rising star among coordinators in the NFL.
He played 15 seasons with five different teams (including the Jets), and he’s overseen a Lions defense that has overachieved on the field this season despite its statistical struggles.
The Lions (2-13-1) rank 30th in the NFL in points allowed and 28th in total
