Speaking with members of the media on Wednesday morning, Adam Gase denied a recent report that claimed he’s been told he won’t be returning as the Jets’ head coach next season.
“That was news to me,” Gase said. “No one has said that to me.”
WFAN’s Craig Carton reported on the air Tuesday during the Carton & Roberts Show that Gase was informed on Tuesday by Jets CEO Christopher Johnson that he would be out as the team’s head coach following Sunday’s regular season finale against New England.
Gase went on to say that hearing rumors about his future is nothing new to him at this point in his second season with the Jets, but he’s not letting any new reports get in the way of his preparation to go on the road in Week 17 and try to pull out a third win of the season.
“I learned probably when I was 22 years old, Nick Saban told me you do your job until somebody tells you different,” Gase said. “So, that’s what I’m going to be focused on. My job is to get us ready to go for this Sunday and go try to win a game.”
Gase enters Sunday’s season finale with a 9-22 record as Jets head coach, as the team’s 6-2 record in the second half of last season never translated into 2020 success, with the Jets dropping their first 13 games before winning two straight.
The 42-year-old head coach will look to lead the Jets to a regular-season finale victory over the Patriots in Foxboro on Sunday at 1:00 p.m..
