After a four-year break from coaching in the National Football League, Pro Football Hall of Famer linebacker Kevin Greene is returning to the sidelines as a member of the new Jets’ coaching staff.
 
Greene will be in charge of coaching the Jets outside linebackers. The same unit he coached when working for the Green Bay Packers, from 2009 to 2013.

This is an extremely important position within Head Coach Todd Bowles’ 3-4 defensive scheme. The hope is with Greene’s expertise in the 3-4 as a player and coach, the Jets can get more production from their two young outside linebackers, Lorenzo Mauldin and Jordan Jenkins. The two combined for only five sacks last season.

Greene is one of the most prolific pass-rushers in NFL history. He recorded 160 sacks playing for the Rams, Steelers, Panthers and 49ers.
 
During his career, he made five Pro Bowls, was a three-time First-Team All-Pro and won NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1996.
 
As a coach, he won a Super Bowl ring in 2011 as a member of the Green Bay Packers, led by Head Coach Mike McCarthy.
 
Greene was inducted into the Hall of Fame last August.
