It won’t be much longer until Adam Gase definitively finds out his future with the Jets.

Gase said that he is “sure” he will meet with Christopher Johnson either Sunday night or at some point Monday following New York’s 28-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 17. Although his fate is likely sealed after compiling a 9-23 record in two seasons with the Jets, Gase is avoiding speculating what his meeting with Johnson could entail.

“I don’t know,” Gase said, per NorthJersey’s Andy Vasquez. “I’m not gonna predict anything.”

NFL Network reported Saturday that Gase would likely be fired following New York’s season finale against New England. The expectation is that the search for New York’s next head coach will be a long and thorough process, with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Ravens DC Don “Wink” Martindale, Titans OC Arthur Smith and Rams DC Brandon Staley among the pro-level candidates.

Iowa State’s Matt Campbell and Florida’s Dan Mullen were also mentioned as candidates from the college ranks that could receive consideration.

With the Jets starting the 2020 season losing their first 13 games, the writing has been on the wall for Gase for the last couple of months. Barring a major change in thinking, it is highly unlikely Gase leaves his meeting with Johnson gearing up for his third season as Jets head coach.
