The Jets picked up an assistant from one of the NFL’s most aggressive teams as their new game management coach last season.
Head coach Robert Saleh has hired former Chargers offensive assistant Dan Shamash as the Jets’ situational football/game management coordinator, The Post’s Brian Costello reported on Tuesday.
Shamash replaces Matt Burke, who left the Jets after one season to become the Cardinals’ defensive line coach.
A native New Yorker with an analytical background, Shamash spent the last five years with the Chargers. Last season under head coach Brandon Staley, the Chargers had the third most fourth-down attempts in the NFL (34), converting to an NFL-high of 22 of them.
Shamash, who overlapped with Saleh at the Jaguars from 2014-16, played football at Carnegie Mellon and later had brief stints with the Jets as an assistant coach and advisor, according to his LinkedIn page.
