Spagnuolo, considered one of the top candidates for the job, met with Jets owner Woody Johnson and general manager Mike Tannenbaum on Tuesday at Johnson's Manhattan office, according to the person, who requested anonymity because the team isn't discussing the interviews.
The team has interviewed at least six other candidates. No other interviews were scheduled as of Thursday night.
Spagnuolo, Schottenheimer and Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan are widely believed to be at the top of the Jets' list, although the team hasn't decided on finalists. The Jets appear to be in no rush to hire a coach, and perhaps delaying the team's decision is the fact that Ryan and Arizona Cardinals assistant head coach/offensive line coach Russ Grimm are still coaching teams in the playoffs.
