According to the New York Daily News, New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles will be back with the team for the 2017 season. Bowles has been mentioned as a candidate to be fired following the 2016 season following the Jets 4-11 season.
Bowles – who was recently in the hospital – were dismantled by the New England Patriots on Christmas Eve. In fact, the Jets haven’t looked competitive in their past three games.
According to the Daily News source, “I don’t anticipate changes.”
Woody Johnson, Jets owner, the newspaper cites, is willing to Bowles another year. With the woeful season that many expected the Jets making the playoffs, fans have called on Johnson to fire Bowles.
The Jets end their season at home on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium. The Bills will have an interim coach in the game, as Anthony Lynn was named interim coach after Rex Ryan was fired on Tuesday.
In the past three games – to the Patriots, Colts and Dolphins – they were outscored 116-26. They lost 41-3 to the Patriots on Saturday.
The Elizabeth, New Jersey native has been the Jets head coach since the 2015 season. He went 10-6 in his initial season, before the disaster this year.
He was also 2-1 as the Miami Dolphins interim head coach in 2011.
