Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that despite public unrest and repeated calls to replace HC Adam Gase, Jets owner Christopher Johnson is expected to remain patient.
Schefter admits that circumstances could still change, but Jets’ ownership is not inclined to make a change at head coach.
The Jets hired GM Joe Douglas just five months ago to help Gase and the two haven’t even had a full offseason together. Schefter says ownership believes the situation will sort itself out.
According to Schefter, the Jets want to judge Gase over a larger body of work than half the season.
Gase, 41, 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.
For his career, Gase has led the Dolphins and Jets to a record of 24-32(42.9 percent), which includes one playoff appearance.
