Jets owner Christopher Johnson told reporters on Wednesday that he won't be moving on from head coach Adam Gase this season.
In fact, he'll be returning for the 2020-21 season.
He will be trusted, along with GM Joe Douglas, to lead the Jets next season and hopefully turn things around.
"I want to assure you there will be no changes in coaches here," Johnson said. "Adam has the trust of this team. He has the trust of Sam [Darnold]. He has Joe's trust. He has my trust. He's a good man. He's a good coach."
Johnson added taht the team was told last Wednesday that Gase would continue in his current role this season and next season. Players were very receptive to the news.
Of course, the Jets' 2-7 record on the season isn't what the team had expected this year. And the Jets offense, which is play-called by Gase himself, currently ranks last in the league. That's what has caused the stir of rumors saying Gase's job could be on the line after just one season.
But, in Gase's defense, not everything has been on him. Injuries have plagued the team throughout the year, and roster-wise, there were still holes on the 53-man before the season kicked off despite ex-GM Mike Maccagnan having close to $100 million in cap space to work with.

Since Douglas has come into One Jets Drive, Johnson has noticed immediately a shift in how things are getting done, and what's in store for the organization. A lot of that has to do with Douglas and Gase working alongside one another.
"Seeing him work with Joe, it's a whole new dynamic in this building," Johnson said. "It's a really positive dynamic. They have the same vision for this team going forward."
That new dynamic makes Johnson confident that this current regime can turn the tides, which is why no changes will be made.
"You are what your record says you are and that's not very impressive," he said. "Looking forward, I think this is going to be a good team. I have so much faith in Adam and Joe to put together a great future for us.
"There's a lot of work to do. There's a great deal of work to do. Everyone understands that and we're just getting started."
