The New York Jets are “expected to part ways with head coach Adam Gase” following Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots, according to’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

Gase, 42, has experienced the roughest tenure as Jets head man perhaps since Rich Kotite‘s two-year run over two decades ago. After a disappointing 7-9 season that saw his team start 0-4, the 2020 Jets kicked things off with 13-straight losses.

Although the team has won consecutive games over winning teams, it’s too little, too late in the land of Florham Park, NJ.

Gase’s .290 career winning percentage places him 15th on the Jets’ all-time list, just one spot ahead of Lou Holtz (.231) and two spots ahead of the last-place man, Kotite (.125), when not including anybody who didn’t coach at least 10 games.

Perhaps the greatest black mark on the soon-to-depart Gase is Sam Darnold‘s current situation.

Brought in to help the third-overall pick (2018) progress, Gase hasn’t done much to help Darnold’s cause. Instead of an inspiring climb towards progress, Darnold has regressed in many ways.

Gase’s potential replacements are many and have been discussed frequently. Iowa State’s Matt Campbell and Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald have been included in these discussions. At the pro level, some of the names are Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady and Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.

If the sources close to Rapoport and Pelissero are correct, Adam Gase’s final game as New York Jets head coach will come against Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
