Chris Mortensen reports that Jets HC Adam Gase is under more intense scrutiny this week and not just from media or fans.
League sources tell Mortensen that the Jets’ brass is monitoring the team closely this week both during today’s game against the Colts and how the team does on a short week leading up to Thursday’s game against the Broncos.
The Jets have been hit hard with injuries in the early part of the season, but Mortensen says even that may not be enough of an excuse if things don’t improve from here.
Gase, 42, began his NFL coaching career with the Lions back in 2003 as a scouting assistant. He spent five years in Detroit before taking a job with the 49ers for the 2008 season.
The Broncos would later hire Gase as their WRs coach and he worked his way up to offensive coordinator before they replaced their coaching staff in 2015. Gase spent a year with the Bears before the Dolphins hired him as their head coach in 2016.
The Dolphins elected to fire Gase after the 2018 season and he managed to secure the Jets’ job soon after.
Since arriving in New York, Gase has led the Jets to a record of 7-11 (38.9 percent).
We’ll have more regarding Gase as the news is available.
