Early reports say the New York Jets will stick with QB Sam Darnold despite hiring Robert Saleh as head coach.
The reaction from around the NFL was universally positive when the Jets hired Robert Saleh to be their next head coach. His former players praised the choice. His new players seemed to love it. Sam Darnold might love it, too.
The New York Jets were searching for a leader, someone who could bring a frustrated, playoff-starved franchise back to respectability. The Jets reached an agreement in principle with the popular and energetic San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Thursday night to hire him as their head coach. Saleh replaces Adam Gase, who was fired by on Jan. 3 after going 9-23 in two seasons.
