Gase Expected to Target old Friends for Coaching Staff

The New York Jets will reportedly hire former Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase. In three seasons with Miami, he went 23-25, reaching the playoffs in 2016.

This came on the same day as former Jets coach Todd Bowles was hired as Tampa Bay's defensive coordinator. He finished his time in Green Bay with a 125-77-2 record and led it to a Super Bowl win in 2011.

Gase replaces Todd Bowles, who was sacked after he went 24-40 in four seasons.

Tom Pelissero with NFL.com reports Mike McCarthy informed his family that he will not take any coaching positions during the upcoming 2019 season. McCarthy interviewed with the Jets last weekend but declined the chance to interview with the Browns.

Though Ohio State fans would gladly remind you that the Buckeyes put up 62 points in a 23-point win in November. The 34-year-old Washington is a Columbus native whose father played linebacker for the Buckeyes.

He worked as an assistant with Detroit, San Francisco and Denver before being promoted to offensive coordinator by the Broncos in 2013 and drawing rave reviews from Peyton Manning. Injuries and personnel errors doomed the Dolphins, and they were never close to contention in Gase's tenure again. Loggains was the Dolphins' offensive coordinator during the 2018 season.

The Jets are hoping that Gase can groom their young rising star, Sam Darnold.

Gase has earned his reputation as a coach who works well with quarterbacks, but his offensive philosophies as a head coach often provided curious results. Earlier this week they announced Matt LaFleur was taking over as head coach.
