Jets to name Adam Gase new coach and social media blows up

Mike McCarthy

He'll try to change his fortunes - as well as those of the Jets - with a new opportunity.

The New York Jets will reportedly hire former Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase.

Gase was sacked after this season as part of an organizational shake-up after the Dolphins finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years.

Must media types are praising the move.

Rhule seemed to be the favorite on Wednesday, but that took a turn just before it was announced that Gase got the job.

Predictably, social media has exploded and SILive.com is going to share of a number of those posts with our readers. Per USA Today's Lorenzo Reyes, he name-dropped a quarterback that Gase has worked with in the past: Peyton Manning.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback was referring to Manning's 2013 season with the Denver Broncos, for which Gase was the offensive coordinator. "I'm really pumped about this opportunity to be with Coach Gase.with his mind and ability to lead a team".

Ceding some personnel authority is surely part of Gase's arrangement with the Jets.

"He's very fiery", Darnold said about Gase. I think he's going to make a huge leap next year.

Those factors combined, Johnson insisted leading into the team's search, made the Jets an attractive spot for a head coach to land.

Gase followed coach John Fox to Chicago in 2015 to be the Bears' offensive coordinator and was hired by the Dolphins as their head coach the following season. Gase's first National Football League job came in 2003 under Steve Mariucci in Detroit, where he worked his way up to quarterbacks coach in five years with the Lions. The USC product threw 15 interceptions as a rookie (tied for second-most in the league), but he did not have any over the final three games of the season as a sure sign of progress looking toward his second season.

The Jets finished 2018 with a 4-12 record and missed the playoffs for an eighth straight season.
