Things certainly haven’t worked out during Adam Gase‘s first season in New York, but it sounds like the Jets head coach isn’t at risk of losing his job. Sources told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that “Woody and Christopher Johnson currently have no plans of making a coaching change at the end of the season.”

Even with the team’s putrid performance in 2019, it’s not entirely shocking that Gase will get at least a second season with the Jets. The team made a relatively big commitment to the coach when they signed him to a four-year deal that’s estimated to be worth upwards of $20M. Considering the front office turnover and injuries throughout the roster, you can’t necessarily blame the organization for giving Gase another chance.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped fans and pundits from calling for Gase’s firing. The plane was seen pulling a ‘FIRE ADAM GASE NOW’ banner over New York City this week (via the NYDN). This came after a (somewhat) surprising loss to the rebuilding Dolphins, dropping the Jets to 1-7 on the season.

Mehta also provides a long list of damning stats: the Jets rank last in the NFL in scoring, passing, and rushing. Considering Gase’s reputation as an offensive guru, the results are disappointing. Further, the head coach has been unwilling to take responsibility for the team’s performance, with one rival GM referring to Gase as “a professional excuse maker.”

Despite all of this, ownership isn’t ready to pull the plug. We all know things can change quickly in New York, but it’s sounding like Gase will be on the sideline come Week 1 of the 2020 campaign.
