The New York Jets will retain Adam Gase as head coach in 2020 despite a 2-7 record.
"I want to assure you there will be no changes in coaches here," Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said in an opening statement to reporters. "Adam has the trust of this team. He has the trust of Sam [Darnold]. He has Joe [Douglas'] trust. He has my trust. He's a good man, he's a good coach."
Johnson was asked whether his commitment also applies after the 2019 season.
"Even after the season," he said.
The Jets have one of their worst offenses in franchise history despite Gase being hired for his perceived offensive acumen.
"It's the trust I see," Johnson said when asked why he was still confident in Gase. "Seeing him work with Sam ... gives me a lot of confidence. Seeing him work with Joe. It's a whole new dynamic in this building. It's a really positive dynamic. They have the same vision for this team going forward.
"There are a number of reasons, but those are two really big ones why I feel confident about Adam as our coach going forward."
