Former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase has agreed to become the new head coach with the New York Jets.
A person familiar with the decision told Associated Press that Gase has agreed to replace Todd Bowles, who was fired by the Jets after he went 24-40 in four seasons.
The Jets 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.
Gase was 23-26 in three seasons with Miami, including a playoff game in 2016, before being fired after this season.
The 40-year-old worked as an assistant with Detroit, San Francisco and Denver before being promoted to offensive coordinator by the Broncos in 2013 and drawing rave reviews from Peyton Manning.
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.
