The inevitable was finally announced today, as the Jets have parted ways with head coach Adam Gase, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
In his two seasons at the helm, Gase had a meek 9-23 record.
Gase was expected to be fired following a loss to the Cleveland Browns, but the Jets got the best of the short-handed team and won 23-16 just one week after beating the Los Angeles Rams 23-20.
Jets fans are ready for a fresh start following the disastrous two-year stint with Gase.
During his time with the Jets, Gase has led the Jets to the No. 32-ranked offense for two-straight seasons and has not improved quarterback Sam Darnold at all.
Now, the search for a replacement is underway, with names like Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale, Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith and Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley all possible options. If the Jets decide to talk to college coaches, it is likely they will meet with Iowa State’s Matt Campbell, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh and Florida’s Dan Mullen.
Still, expect a lengthy search for a new head coach, as Gase was brought in less than two weeks after the firing of former head coach Todd Bowles.
The failed experiment is finally over and Jets fans can rejoice after dealing with two seasons of questionable leadership and decision making.
