New York Jets head coach Adam Gase has decided that he will not give up his current play-calling duties at this moment.
FLORHAM PARK, NJ—Two days after throwing everything on the table, the New York Jets head coach has decided his own fate in one specific area.
#NYJ coach Adam Gase will not be giving up play-calling duties, per source. Gase himself had floated the idea as a consider-everything possibility for his winless team & stagnant offense. Ultimately, the head coach decided against it. #NYJvsMIA on Sunday.

Gase, 42, is under the gun unlike any head coach in recent memory. He lost the fan base seemingly the moment he was hired, and now that Le’Veon Bell is a former Jet, the heat’s been turned up.
Gase confirmed the fact that he will keep offensive play-calling duties on his Wednesday conference call with reporters.
“We talked about it as a staff,” Gase said. “None of the guys thought it was the right move to make.”
The Jets have been outscored 131-65, and the team’s 0-5 start is the organization’s worst since 1996.
Gase’s Jets will look to pick up their first victory of the season this Sunday when his former team, the Miami Dolphins, come to MetLife Stadium for Week 6 NFL action.
