Owner Leon Hess named Rich Kotite the 10th full-time head coach in franchise history after firing Pete Carroll after the Jets finished 6-10 in his only season as coach.
Douglas was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year after leading all first-year players with a team-rookie-record 10 sacks.
WR Rob Moore was traded to Arizona the night prior to the draft for RB Ronald Moore and the Cardinals' No. 1 choice (Apr. 21). As a result, the Jets held two first-round picks for the first time since 1984 (Russell Carter, Ron Faurot) and selected Penn State TE Kyle Brady and DE Hugh Douglas from Central State of Ohio.
Kotite won his first game as Jets head coach with a 27-10 victory over the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars at the Meadowlands.
WR Wayne Chrebet, the rookie FA from Hofstra, passed WR Al Toon the previous week, then became the Jets' all-time leading rookie receiver with four catches at New England in game 14, surpassing Matt Snell's 56-catch mark set in 1964.
