"This evening, I informed Adam Gase he will no longer serve as the Head Coach of the Jets," Johnson said in a statement. "During his time here, I had the pleasure to get to know Adam and his wonderful family and wish them nothing but the best moving forward. While my sincere intentions are to have stability in our organization — especially in our leadership positions — it is clear the best decision for the Jets is to move in a different direction. We knew there was a lot of work that needed to be done when Adam joined us in 2019. Our strong finish last year was encouraging, but unfortunately, we did not sustain that positive momentum or see the progress we all expected this season.

"To our fans, it is obvious we have not been good enough. We are committed to building a strong organization, on and off the field, and will continue to provide the necessary resources to field a team that you can be proud of."
Gase, who was hired by the Jets in January 2019, first became a head coach with the Miami Dolphins. He took the team to the playoffs back in 2016 but finished with a 13-19 record over the next two years, which led to his firing. He took over the Jets position in 2019 but finished with a 9-23 record with New York.

Their 2-14 record in 2020 was the second-worst in franchise history.
