New York Jets are not having a great season in 2019, as they currently find themselves at the bottom of AFC East with 2-7 record. Despite this, however, the team remains confident in the coaching staff and head coach Adam Gase. So confident, in fact, that they are already guaranteeing him job safety through 2020.

Jets’ owner Christopher Johnson had a brief chat with reporters after Wednesday’s practice and told them that Gase won’t be fired no matter how this season ends. He also assured them that Jets’ will keep the same coach next season as well.

“I want to assure you there will be no changes in coaches here,” – said Johnson. “Adam has the trust of this team. He has the trust of Sam [Darnold]. He has Joe [Douglas’] trust. He has my trust. He’s a good man. He’s a good coach.”

New York Jets brought in Adam Gase in January despite the fact that he was coming off an unsuccessful stint with Miami Dolphins, where he posted 23–26 record. Gase was supposed to lift the team’s offense and to help turn around the organization, but he hasn’t had much success in that so far.

Jets are currently rank dead last in NFL in total offense while ranking in top three in turnovers this season. Gase also failed to bring out the best out of second-year quarterback Sam Darnold, whose numbers are down compared to his rookie season.

While Gase has the owner’s supports, for now, he shouldn’t be too relaxed. If the Jets continue to go down the same road, Johnson could easily change his mind and bring in another coach.
