FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets are expected to hire Adam Gase as their new head coach, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington.
Gase would become the Jets' first head coach since Bill Parcells (1997) with NFL head coaching experience. He would fill the need for an offensive-minded coach, something they haven't had since Rich Kotite (1995-1996). Gase is also expected to be the Jets' primary playcaller.
Dowell Loggains is expected to serve as Gase's offensive coordinator though Gase will continue to call plays. After a couple of great seasons as the OC in Denver with Peyton Manning, Gase served as the OC in Chicago (21st in yards, 23rd in points) before three seasons as head coach of the Dolphins (24th/17th, 25th/28th, 31st/26th). He may have more luck in New York with a good young QB in Sam Darnold to build an offense around.
