The team was defeated 38-3 to the New England Patriots on Sunday. The loss gave the Jets their third straight 5-11 season.

New York had just one winning season under Bowles. That was a 10-6 season in his first season as head coach with the team in 2015.

“I would like to thank Coach Bowles for his dedication to the New York Jets for the last four years,” Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement. “After carefully evaluating the situation, I have concluded that this is the right direction for the organization to take. I would like to wish Todd, Taneka and their family only the best.”

The Jets are the second team to fire their head coach on Sunday. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the first team to fire its head coach, as they gave Dirk Koetter the pink slip approximately one hour before the Jets made their decision.

Bowles will be one of the top Defensive Coordinators on the market now if he is not able to get another head coaching position right away. Before becoming the Jets head coach, he was the Arizona Cardinals Defensive Coordinator in 2013 and 2014.

He was the Philadelphia Eagles Interim Defensive Coordinator and Secondary Coach from October 16, 2012 after the team fired former Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo. He was hired as the team’s Secondary Coach in January 2012.

The 55-year-old Elizabeth, New Jersey native was named the Miami Dolphins Interim Head Coach and Secondary Coach on December 18th, 2011. He went 2-1 as the team’s Interim Head Coach.

He was the team’s Assistant Head Coach and Secondary Coach from 2008 through 2011. Before joining the Dolphins, he spent three seasons as the Dallas Cowboys Secondary Coach from 2005 through 2007.

Bowles also served as the Cleveland Browns Secondary Coach in 2004. He was the Browns Secondary-Nickel Package Coach from 2001 through 2003.

In 2000, he was the Jets Secondary Coach. He was the Grambling State Tigers Defensive Coordinator and Secondary Coach in 1998 and 1999.

He began his coaching career as the Morehouse College Tigers Defensive Coordinator and Secondary Coach in 1986 through 1990.
