The New York Jets announced on Twitter that they have parted ways with head coach Adam Gase.
In their statement, the Jets state that it is in their best interest that they dismiss the relationship between Gase and the team in order to move in a different direction.
Gase, who was chosen captain of the Jets ship after a losing record in Miami did more of the same in The Meadowlands as he went 2-14 this season. He leaves the Jets with a losing career record of 9-23 while placing the organization in a prime area to revitalize, picking second in the upcoming NFL Draft.
Gase’s time in New York was heavily criticized this season as the 0-15 start had many calling for his job on a weekly basis. After finishing the season’s last three weeks with a record of 2-1, Jets management ultimately saw enough and elected to move on from him.
While it is young in his dismissal from the organization, rumours have begun to pile up on where the former Jets bench boss will end up. There have been rumours of him joining the Jets divisional rival in the New England Patriots coaching staff. If Gase wanted to go back to his college roots in the SEC, it is reported that Alabama Crimson Tide head coach, Nick Saben, is looking at both Gase and former Houston Texans HC/GM, Bill O’Brien for the Tide’s offensive coordinator position.
Gaste started his coaching career as a grad assistant at LSU before starting his NFL career with the Detroit Lions. There he served as an offensive assistant and quarterbacks coach. He then had stops in San Fransisco, Denver and Chicago before being named Miami’s head coach in 2016. Following two seasons there, Gase was fired from Miami. He was hired as the team’s head coach and intern general manager. He retained the role until Joe Douglass was hired to fill that role. Gase was the 19th coach in Jet’s history and finishes with a win percentage of 0.281.
