The New York Jets may be sticking with Todd Bowles for a third season, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be someone else getting the blame for a disappointing year.
Chan Gailey is not expected to be retained as offensive coordinator in 2017, either transitioning into an advisory role with the club or moving on entirely, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Gailey joined the Jets when Bowles was brought aboard ahead of the 2015 season, but Rapoport’s report suggests the team will hire a coordinator more in line with the head coach’s style.
The New York offense ranked 10th in total yards and 11th in scoring last year before tumbling to 26th and 30th in those respective categories with one game remaining this season.
Landing the offensive coordinator gig with the Jets marked Gailey’s return to the NFL after following up his dismissal as the Buffalo Bills head coach with two years spent on the sidelines.
