Just one day after the Jets made it official that Adam Gase would no longer be the team's head coach, he may be finding work elsewhere. 

However, this new job might be sending him back to the NCAA. 

According to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman, Gase is among the coaches being considered for Alabama's offensive coordinator vacancy under Nick Saban

The job came about when Steve Sarkisian, the team's current OC, took the head coach position at the University of Texas. Bill O'Brien, who was fired by the Houston Texans mid-season this year, is also reportedly being considered. 

Gase has a connection to Saban from their time together at LSU. Gase was a graduate assistant at the time, just starting his coaching career, while Saban was head coach. 

Known as an offensive guru when New York hired Gase two seasons ago, it just didn't appear that way with the Jets sputtering in that category during his time. Granted, the Jets' roster was still a big work in progress and injuries never helped. But Gase even admitted Sam Darnold did not make solid progress during his time with the organization. 

Could he get redemption with arguably the best college football program in the country? We'll see just how interested Saban is in Gase after Alabama plays in yet another national championship in one week.
