The New York Jets announced Sunday that they’ve officially parted ways with HC Todd Bowles after four seasons.
“I would like to thank Coach Bowles for his dedication to the New York Jets for the last four years,” Jets Chairman & CEO Christopher Johnson said. “After carefully evaluating the situation, I have concluded that this is the right direction for the organization to take. I would like to wish Todd, Taneka and their family only the best.”
Jets GM Mike Maccagnan will work closely with Johnson when it comes to finding the team’s next head coach.
It’s been clear for a few months now that Bowles’ time in New York was going to be coming to an end after the season, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Some names that have been connected to the Jets in recent weeks including Mike McCarthy, Jim Caldwell and Jim Harbaugh.
Bowles, 54, began his NFL coaching career with the Packers back in 1995 as a player personnel staff member before working for a number of teams including the Jets, Browns, Cowboys, Dolphins, Eagles and Cardinals.
The Jets hired Bowles as their head coach for the 2015 season and signed him to an extension last through 2020 last year.
During his four years as Jets’ head coach, Bowles has led the team to a record of 24-40 (37.4 percent) and no playoff appearances.
