Stephen Russo with a closer look at Adam Gase’s history and resume
For a franchise that has seemed to botch everything since Joe Namath was quarterback, it appears the Jets have gotten two things right: drafting Sam Darnold and firing Todd Bowles. Now, we have moved into arguably the most important offseason in franchise history. With the Darnold entering year two, the third overall pick in the draft, and $100 million dollars in salary cap space to spend, the first task of finding the right head coach was critical. So, in a time of such emotional turmoil, I am certain that every fan had their thoughts on the eight candidates that we heard connected to the Jets.
As the days passed and other teams made their decisions, it tested our patience as we rode an emotional roller coaster that was the start to the Jets offseason. And as the clock continued to tick, it looked as if every sign pointed to Matt Rhule, and within an instant, they pivoted and hired former Dolphins Coach Adam Gase. As we either begin to rationalize the hire, hate it, love it, or chose not to care, I have attempted to take a look at Adam Gase full resume.

The New York Jets coaching search has officially reached one week. Thus far, the Jets have four interviews in the books (Bieniemy, Gase, McCarthy, Richard) and at least one more scheduled (Monken). This weekend has been quite the frenzy as news continues to break: Is McCarthy really taking 2019 off (please)? Is Green Bay all-in on Adam Gase (please!)? Will Kingsbury opt out of his contract with USC to interview with NFL teams (PLEASE!!)? All this news in only two days has Jets fans on the phones like Adam Schefter. Or maybe that’s just me.

As we close the book on a 4-12 Jets season, one that led with hope but quickly turned sour, we turn our attention toward the most exciting time of the year: The Offseason. While Jets Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson moved quickly to fire Head Coach Todd Bowles on the last Sunday of the season, following a 38-3 trouncing in New England, Johnson chose to retain General Manager Mike Maccagnan. This leaves Maccagnan in charge of spearheading yet another Jets offseason with over $100 million in salary cap space, the third overall draft pick, and teaming up with Johnson to select the Jets new Head Coach. Yikes.
