The New York Jets made a strong decision regarding their head coach, and it seems like the organization is ready to let Todd Bowles go.
Ian Rapoport reported that the New York Jets will relieve Bowles of his duties after the game against the New England Patriots. The same info was confirmed by several sources. This comes after the terrible season the team had. Being at 4-12 in the season is a terrible thing. Bowles is ending his time with the team with an overall record of 24-40.
Things do not look too bright for general manager Mike Maccagnan, too. His faith is still up in the air at this point of the season, and he may be replaced with other name in near future.
Bowles joined the Jets as a replacement to Rex Ryan after the 2014 season. The head coach was doing a really great job with the Arizona Cardinals, and the Jets hoped that he will turn the team into a fearsome unit.
In 2015, the Jets were 10-6, and hopes went high. However, 2016 was a complete disaster. The team struggled at 5-11, and could not compete in most games. 2017 was bad, too. Bowles got a contract extension to stay with the team through 2020.
The Jets defeated the Detroit Lions in 2018 48-17, and then lost three straight games. Things got even worse from that point.
However, many believe that Bowles will find his home somewhere else. He may go back to Arizona now that we know that the team is planning to get rid of Steve Wilks. Bowles may work well with Josh Rosen, Christian Kirk and David Johnson. It’s a strong team, and they may build a strong defense to go against the Rams, Seahawks and 49ers. Everything depends on the way the Cardinals play after the finale.
