Jets coach Adam Gase said Wednesday that he has not been told by Jets ownership that he will be fired after Sunday’s season finale against the Patriots.
There was a report from WFAN on Tuesday that said Jets ownership told Gase he would be fired.
“That was news to me,” Gase said. “No one has said that to me.”
While Gase has not been informed of the decision, the expectation is that Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson will fire Gase after the game against the Patriots. Gase is 9-22 in two years as the team’s coach.
Gase said he is not focusing on his job status.
“I learned probably when I was 22 years old, Nick Saban told me you do your job until somebody tells you different,” Gase said. “That’s what I’m going to be focused on. My job is to get us ready to go this Sunday and try to win a game.”
The Jets have won two straight games after an 0-13 start. The Jets offense has been terrible under Gase, whose background is on the offensive side of the ball. Gase was asked if he is worried his reputation as an offensive coach has taken a hit with the Jets having the No. 32 offense in the NFL for the second straight season.
“I don’t know if worry is really the right word,” Gase said. “It’s just … I mean it pisses me off. If there’s one side of the ball I want to make sure is right, it’s that one. It has not happened and that’s on me.”
