A head coach and quarterback are tied together automatically, and in New York Gase will inherit a promising young signal caller in Sam Darnold.
The Jets have finally picked their new head honcho. "I think that wil rub off on a lot of the guys.I'm super pumped about this whole thing and couldn't be more stoked for the opportunity". In 2013, Gase was promoted to offensive coordinator, a position he held through the 2014 season. It also reported that Manning called Johnson Tuesday night to provide a sparkling reference for Gase.
The Dolphins reached the playoffs in Gase's first year.
Ceding some personnel authority is surely part of Gase's arrangement with the Jets.
"I think he's a fantastic coach", Romo said. Joseph spent time in Cincinnati as a positional coach before being a coordinator in Miami and head coach in Denver.
McCarthy's decision to skip coaching in 2019 came on the same day that his successor, Matt LaFleur, was introduced as the Packers' new head coach. The Jets need to add pieces around Darnold, but one of the appealing aspects of the head coaching job is the salary cap space they'll have to address that this offseason ($99.38 million, second-most in the league, via Over The Cap).
"Coach Gase has done incredible things not with just quarterbacks, but offense in general", Darnold said.
Gase's Dolphins were particularly good in one-score games, going 7-1 in those situations this season and 20-6 in three years.
