Jets rumors: Todd Bowles will be considered for other coaching openings
Apparently, Bowles will be considered by some other franchises for a head-coaching job. That may sound bizarre, given how poorly Bowles’ run with the Jets has gone, but who knows? Maybe other teams see something in him that the Jets (and fans and pundits everywhere) just don’t.
Bowles took the reins as New York’s head coach in 2015 and was very impressive in his first season, leading the Jets to a 10-win campaign and just missing out on the playoffs after a disastrous Week 17 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Since then, however, Bowles has been on a downward spiral. He went just 5-11 the following year, and last season, Bowles posted the same exact record.
Now, for the Jets’ franchise as a whole, winning five games in 2017 wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it gave them the opportunity to draft quarterback Sam Darnold, who appears to be their signal-caller of the future.
But, New York currently owns a record of 4-10 entering Sunday’s action, meaning that the team has shown zero improvement over these last three seasons.
That is never good for a head coach’s status, regardless of how poor the roster is.
Also, keep in mind that the Jets have not made the playoffs since the 2010-11 campaign, so Bowles’ mistakes as New York’s leader are going to be magnified in the Big Apple.
