The New York Jets hired former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg to the same position on Friday, reports NFL.com.

Mornhinweg spent the last nine seasons with the Eagles and became their offensive coordinator in 2006.  . The Eagles landed in the top 10 in scoring offense from 2008-11. In 2012, the Eagles averaged 17.5 points a game, good for 29th in the league. They also tied for an NFL-worst -24 in turnover margin. Mornhinweg will bring the West Coast offense to New York and try to get a Jets offense that struggled to find a rhythm all season after several key members went down with injuries, including receiver Santonio Holmes.  The Jets were 28th in scoring and 30th in pass offense last season.
