The New York Jets finally fire abysmal, polarizing, overrated head coach Adam Gase after two miserably seasons — combining for a whopping 9-23 record and zero playoff appearances.
The 2020 season might have been the worst season in Jets history, as the team finished 2-14 and WITHOUT the number one overall pick.
Hopefully, Gase will be a lesson to other teams to seriously consider qualified minority candidates like Eric Bieniemy and Robert Saleh as opposed to deferring to nepotism/NFL buddy system (Peyton Manning recommended Gase to Jets).
Prior to Gase’s Jets tenure, he served as head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2016-2018, amassing a wonderfully mediocre record of 23-25. Purely coincidentally, former Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill managed to have two of his best seasons after leaving Gase’s “tutelage.”
Official Statement from New York Jets CEO and Chairman Christopher Johnson:
“This evening, I informed Adam Gase he will no longer serve as the Head Coach of the Jets. During his time here, I had the pleasure to get to know Adam and his wonderful family and wish them nothing but the best moving forward. While my sincere intentions are to have stability in our organization – especially in our leadership positions – it is clear the best decision for the Jets is to move in a different direction. We knew there was a lot of work that needed to be done when Adam joined us in 2019. Our strong finish last year was encouraging, but unfortunately, we did not sustain that positive momentum or see the progress we all expected this season.
To our fans, it is obvious we have not been good enough. We are committed to building a strong organization, on and off the field, and will continue to provide the necessary resources to field a team that you can be proud of.”
Who should be the next head coach of the NY Jets?
