John Fox has declined an interview with the New York Jets, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
This season the Broncos lost 24-13 at home to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the playoffs after going 12-4 and winning the AFC West in the regular season.
Fox previously served as the coach of the Carolina Panthers from 2002-2010.
The Jets are looking for a new head coach after firing Rex Ryan, along with general manager John Idzik, in late December. Over six seasons under Ryan, the Jets went 46-50 with zero playoff appearances since 2010.
The Jets went 4-12 this season and finished in last place in the AFC East.
UPDATE: In response to the report, Jets officials reportedly said that the team did not request to interview Fox.
