Jason La Canfora, citing sources with knowledge of the situation, reports that the Jets are not considering any changes to their coaching staff, even though the job security of HC Todd Bowles has been a popular topic as of late.
According to La Canfora, any talk of Bowles being on the hot seat was premature and ownership is not mulling a potential change in leadership at this point in time.
The Jets are still looking for signs of improvement and growth over the course of the season and they’re hopeful the team will finish the year on more of a positive note.
Even so, La Canfora admits he wouldn’t be completely surprised if the Jets were in the market next year for an offensive-minded head coach to work with QB Sam Darnold. However, the Jets aren’t planning to move on from Bowles.
Bowles, 54, began his NFL coaching career with the Packers back in 1995 as a player personnel member. He had stints with the Jets, Browns, Cowboys, Dolphins, and Eagles before being hired as the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator in 2013.
After two years in Arizona, the Jets hired Bowles as their head coach for the 2015 season.
During his four years with the Jets, Bowles has led them to a record of 21-31 (40.4 percent) and no playoff appearances.
