Gase's hiring ended a wide-open search for NY, which fired Todd Bowles after the season finale and then met with seven other coaches about their vacancy, including Mike McCarthy, Kris Richard, Jim Caldwell, Eric Bieniemy, Todd Monken, Matt Rhule and Kliff Kingsbury, who took the Arizona Cardinals job.

The Jets' new head coach looks like he has the support of one of the most important members of the team's locker room.

With the Jets, Gase now has the opportunity to work with Sam Darnold, who the organization is confident was the best pick as their quarterback of the future.

Earlier in the week, Gase received a resounding thumbs up from Adams' offensive counterpart. He hasn't been hired as a full-time head coach since his stint in Buffalo.

Gase was sacked by the Dolphins in December after three seasons at the helm and the Jets confirmed his arrival on Friday.

In short, the Chargers have been hosting home games in Dignity Health Sports Park, a stadium that was built for soccer. However, this solution also presents another dilemma.

"Adam is a young, creative mind, but he also has 22 years of coaching experience", Johnson said.

The Jets went with ex-Dolphins head coach Adam Gase to run the show and are reportedly going to hire ex-interim Browns head coach Gregg Williams to become their new defensive coordinator. "He is an innovator whose path saw him succeed at both the college and the National Football League levels", Johnson said.

However, the Jets are deciding to go with Gase, who was a hot item back in 2016 as an offensive whiz.

According to Darlington, Darnold actually spoke with Gase on FaceTime Monday night, and came away thinking Gase was the right man to take over.

Gase's introductory press conference is scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m. replaces Todd Bowles, who was sacked after he went 24-40 in four seasons. And Darlington furthered his reporting, saying Jets CEO Christopher Johnson took a call from Peyton Manning, who Gase worked with in Denver during his tenure. On Friday, Bowles was introduced as the new defensive coordinator of the Bruce Arians-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
