officially have Adam Gase in place.The team announced the hiring of the former Miami Dolphins coach as their head coach Friday after coming to an agreement on Wednesday night.Gase will be formally introduced as the Jets’ coach at a news conference Monday at the team’s facility in Florham Park White Jamal Adams Jerseys , New Jersey. The 40-year-old Gase was 23-26 in three years with Miami, including a playoff game in the 2016 season, before being fired last week.“At the onset of the interview process, I wanted to hire a head coach who was the right person and the right fit for our organization,” Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement on the team’s website. “We talked to a number of excellent candidates and it became clear to me that Adam was the person who will help us establish a winning program and a winning culture.”Gase’s hiring ended a wide-open search for New York, which fired Todd Bowles after the season finale and then met with seven other coaches about their vacancy, including Mike McCarthy, Kris Richard, Jim Caldwell, Eric Bieniemy Jamal Adams Jerseys 2019 , Todd Monken, Matt Rhule and Kliff Kingsbury, who took the Arizona Cardinals job.Gase is the Jets’ first hire with previous full-time NFL head coaching experience since Bill Parcells’ three-year tenure from 1997-99. He’s also the first offense-focused coach since Rich Kotite in 1996. Gase will be tasked with furthering the development of quarterback Sam Darnold and helping New York snap an eight-year postseason drought.“Adam is a young, creative mind, but he also has 22 years of coaching experience,” Johnson said. “He is an innovator whose path saw him succeed at both the college and the NFL levels. He has helped a number of different quarterbacks, at various stages of their careers, reach new heights. We think Sam will continue to develop under his tutelage, but we made the decision because of Adam’s vision for the entire football team.”Gase began his coaching career as an assistant at LSU, before taking positions in the NFL with Detroit White Marcus Maye Jerseys , San Francisco and Denver — where he was promoted to offensive coordinator and drew rave reviews from Peyton Manning. The former quarterback called Johnson on Wednesday to give Gase a glowing endorsement.Darnold also spoke with Gase during the interview process.“I’m just really, really pumped to have this attitude and buzz around this team,” Darnold said in a story posted on the team’s website. “And I think our fans can really look forward to scoring a lot of points and having a lot of, I guess, fireworks every single Sunday.” NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have placed running back Isaiah Crowell on season-ending injured reserve with a toe injury.Crowell didn’t practice all week and had already been ruled out for the Jets’ game against Houston on Saturday. He was hurt against Tennessee two weeks ago and re-injured his foot against Buffalo last Sunday.Crowell has a team-leading 685 yards rushing and six touchdowns. He has never missed a game during his five-year NFL career.New York signed running back De’Angelo Henderson from the practice squad Friday to take Crowell’s roster spot. The Jets also have Elijah McGuire and rookie Trenton Cannon in the backfield.Crowell signed to a three-year, $12 million deal with New York last March after four seasons with Cleveland.He set the Jets’ franchise mark with 219 yards rushing against the Browns on Oct. 7. But his record-breaking performance was quickly overshadowed by one of his touchdown celebrations in that game, when he pretended to wipe his backside with the football before throwing it into the stands. Crowell was fined $13,369 for the gesture — but also received an endorsement deal from a company that makes a toilet-paper substitute.Crowell isn’t a lock to return next season for the Jets. He is due to make $4 million in 2019, with none of it guaranteed, and would count $5 million against the salary cap. If Crowell is cut in the offseason Marcus Maye Jerseys 2019 , the Jets would have to pay $2 million in dead money on the cap.Crowell, who turns 26 next month, has 3,803 yards rushing and 27 touchdowns in his career, with 117 catches for 922 yards and a score.Henderson has spent most of the season on the Jets’ practice squad after being a sixth-round draft pick of Denver last year out of Coastal Carolina. He was active for one game with New York, against Chicago in Week 8.
