That's the bare minimum for RBS, their goal is progress in Europe maybe making it out of the UCL group stage for the first time.
And I don't buy this rumor. That would be too big a leap for Jesse I think. But plenty of previous Salzburg coaches have moved on to bigger jobs but none as big as Dortmund.
He still needs to win the League and advance in UCL or make a Europa run. He has more he can show in 1-2 years.
But who know they may want to gamble on someone who can put them over the top as they is relatively young, can develop players, knows the league, knows German and seems like he can coach.
