​After endless speculation, the ​New York Jets have a head coach.


The ​Jets have hired former Miami Dolphins head man ​Adam Gase. Gase beat out Mike McCarthy, Baylor head coach Matt Rhule and Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken. 

Gase was fired after three years in Miami, where he went 23-25 and made the playoffs in his first season with a 10-6 record. His first full-time coaching experience came in 2009 with the Denver Broncos. He worked his way up from wide receivers coach to quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. Under his watch in 2013, Peyton Manning set the single-season record for passing yards and touchdowns


Critics of Gase will point to his ​​sub .500 record with an AFC East team and friction with Dolphins' ownership as reasons that he won't make a good head coach, while supporters will say that he didn't have a lot to work with. 


Ryan Tannehill was hurt every season Gase was there, forcing him to rely on Matt Moore, Jay Cutler and Brock Osweiler. Manning, Cutler and Tannehill all had career-best seasons in a Gase offense. 

​​Gase is instantly an upgrade over Todd Bowles from an offensive perspective. 


The main mission the Jets were looking to accomplish with this hire was finding someone who could develop Sam Darnold. Gase has plenty of questions surrounding him, but this should be good news for Darnold and the offense.
