◊ In his second season (2010) on the Jets staff, Weeks worked under former assistant head coach/linebackers coach Bob Sutton with the specific task of tutoring the outside linebackers on their assignments and techniques.

◊ Weeks originally joined the Jets in 2009 and helped the team advance to the AFC championship game. Initially a defensive assistant, he focused on the de­fensive line for the second half of the season. During that period, the defense limited teams to 82.0 yards rushing a game (fifth-best in the NFL) after allow­ing 111.6 rushing yards a game during the season’s first nine games. Also in 2009, Weeks coached defensive lineman Shaun Ellis, who was named to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his career.

◊ He served as a defensive assistant during the 2008 season with the Raiders.

◊ Weeks coached with Rex Ryan in college at Morehead State (1990-91) and at Oklahoma (1998). He also coaching collegiately at Texas A&M-Kingsville (2005-06), Southeastern Oklahoma State (2005), Trinity Valley (Texas) CC (2000-04), Fort Scott (Kansas) CC (1999), Glendale (Arizona) CC (1997) and Phoenix (Arizona) CC (1996).
