12/20/2013

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets special-teams coordinator Ben Kotwica will interview for Army’s head-coaching job this weekend, a league source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kotwica was a linebacker at the military academy and started for three seasons. He was a captain in 1996, a successful season for the Black Knights. Kotwica went on to serve the country as a company commander in Iraq, and flew Apache helicopters for eight years.

Kotwica was the Jets' assistant special-teams coach until this season, when he replaced veteran coordinator Mike Westhoff.

The school is located in West Point, N.Y., about an hour and a half north of the Jets' practice facility in Florham Park, N.J.
