AP Source: NY Jets hire former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase
New York, NY (CBS12) —
It hasn’t taken very long for Adam Gase to land on his feet after being fired as head coach by the Miami Dolphins on New Years Eve. The Associated Press is reporting that the New York Jets have hired Gase as their new head coach, in hopes that he can provide them the spark that former head coach Todd Bowles could not.
Gase, who finished his tenure in Miami with a 23-25 overall record, is known for his offensive minded strategies, and his hiring would indicate that the Jets recognize his potential strength in working with quarterback Sam Darnold.
The Dolphins finished 6-10 in 2017 and 7-9 in 2018, but it could be argued that injuries to Ryan Tannehill, among other offensive key offensive players, attributed to his demise as head coach.
