2-7 Jets say they’re committed to first-year coach Adam Gase
Has any coach in the NFL been more widely-criticized this season than the New York Jets first-year head coach Adam Gase?
Probably not—though that is not to say the criticism has been entirely misplaced.
#Jets owner Christopher Johnson spoke to a group of reporters out at practice. He said there will be NO changes at head coach before or after season.
Adam Gase will be back in 2020.
No matter what

Gase’s supposed offensive genius has yet to show itself at any point this season, Sam Darnold has made no progress from his rookie season, and their prized free-agent acquisition in Le’Veon Bell has yet to make any notable impact.
Given all that, it was widely assumed that the Jets would at least consider canning Adam Gase once the season was over.
It’s only his first year, and the injury bug has not been kind to New York, but the team has looked so bad at times that firing Adam Gase seems the only way to truly move forward.
Jets owner Christopher Johnson put any and all of those thoughts to rest on Wednesday when he said, with no room for interpretation, that Gase would be the head coach come 2020.
