It doesn’t sound like Adam Gase will be one-and-done. On Wednesday, owner Christopher Johnson told reporters that Gase will not be fired after the season. Johnson added that he believes in Gase, and that apparently extends to the staff – Johnson doesn’t believe there will be any other coaching changes made between now and the end of the year.
This jibes with a previous report from Manish Mehta of the Daily News, indicating that neither Christopher nor Woody plan on canning Gase. Its been a rough year for Gang Green, but they still feel that Gase is the answer. Even if there are some doubts, they’re not about to eat the remainder of Gase’s $20MM contract, which runs through the 2021 season.
The Jets rank last, or near the bottom, of many key offensive categories this season, despite Gase’s rep as an offensive guru. On the plus side – they’re coming off of a win over the rival Giants, though that was just their second win of the season.
Next up for the Jets: a Sunday showdown with the Redskins, followed by a return home to face the Raiders. At 2-7, the Jets will not be in the playoff chase, but they do project to land the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 draft.
