Some weekend trivia

While I'm on the Jets theme: who was the last Jets coach to be fired?

Bonus: list all of the Jets coaches who quit since this mystery coach has been fired.

Rich Kotite, after the miserable 1996 season. Parcells took over and guided this team to a 9-7 record, then a 12-4 run that had them 1 win away from the Super Bowl. My point - the team had some talent, just was poorly coached in the mid 90's.
Al Groh quit to go to VA, Parcells resigned also (which started the brief Bellichick era), which leaves Kotite. I am not sure if Pete Carrol was fired before Kotite, yet my memory also has a Joe Walsh going 4-12 in the '89 season and getting axed. The Godfather was in the stands back then yelling "Joe must Go!!".
Did Carrol coach the Jets between '90 and '93? Or am I missing someone?
