” This night, I informed Adam Gase he will no longer act as the Head Coach of the Jets,” Johnson stated in a statement. “Throughout his time here, I had the pleasure to get to understand Adam and his wonderful household and want them absolutely nothing however the very best moving on. While my genuine intentions are to have stability in our organization– especially in our leadership positions– it is clear the very best decision for the Jets is to relocate a different direction. We understood there was a lot of work that required to be done when Adam joined us in 2019. Our strong surface last year was motivating, however unfortunately, we did not sustain that positive momentum or see the progress all of us anticipated this season.
