New York Jets: Adam Gase guaranteed to return as head coach in 2020
By Paul A. Esden Jr.
The New York Jets will NOT be making a head coaching change now or after the season. Here are all the details and what it all means.
Another New York Jets guarantee has been thrown down, but this one won’t necessarily make fans happy.
Owner Christopher Johnson spoke to the media during practice on Wednesday and said that head coach Adam Gase’s job is “safe”.
He went on to say that a head coaching change would not happen during the season or after it.
This confirms a report from Adam Schefter from a few weeks ago that intimated the team will “remain patient” with Adam Gase.
“There has been zero finger-pointing, despite the results of this season. That speaks very highly of the character of this team and the effort of the coaches. With that I want to assure you that there will be no changes in coaches. Adam has the trust of this team, he has the trust of Sam (Darnold), he has Joe (Douglas)’s trust, and he has my trust. Adam Gase is a good man and a good coach. There’s a lot of work to do and everyone understands that. I feel really good about this team moving forward.”
This vote of confidence is now public but was also revealed to the team last Wednesday according to Johnson prior to the game vs the New York Giants.
When this announcement was revealed to the team last week, the players were very positive about the news.
So far this season the New York Jets are 2-7 with seven games left to go in the 2019 season. Gase as a head coach is 25-32 in four seasons (three with the Miami Dolphins and one with the Jets).
There’s a lot of optimism that the Jets can finish the season strong. According to the analytics, Gang Green has the easiest schedule remaining in the NFL. Up next the Jets will travel to play the 1-8 Washington Redskins on Sunday. Although regardless of what happens the rest of the season, Gase will return as the head coach of the green and white.
