Adam Gase begins his second season as the head coach of the New York Jets after posting a 6-2 record over the final eight games, tied for the third most wins in the league over that span. Overall, he led the team to a 7-9 record, a three-win improvement from 2018.
Under Gase, starting quarterbacks have registered a 100+ passer rating 41 times, a number that would tie him for 10th among all NFL franchises since 2013. Additionally, six different quarterbacks (Sam Darnold, Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler, Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore and Brock Osweiler) have produced a 100+ passer rating performance.
Beginning with his first season in Denver (2009), Gase has coached 17 different players to the Pro Bowl – a list includes 12 offensive players, with multiple players at offensive line, wide receiver and running back.
In his first season as the Jets head coach, Gase led a roster that used the third-most players in the league as a result of injury. Despite the consistent roster change, he oversaw improvements in almost every major category – offensively and defensively – over the season's final eight weeks. In that span (Weeks Nine-17), the offense increased their third-down efficiency by a league-best 15%, allowing just 15 sacks (ninth best), a 22-sack improvement from the first eight weeks. Additionally, the Jets committed just eight turnovers in the last eight games, the 10th fewest in the league.
One of his main charges, quarterback Sam Darnold, improved in every category, as the second-year pro posted highs in completion percentage, yards per attempt, touchdown percentage, while decreasing his interception percentage and recording the league's 10th best passer rating in compiling a 6-2 record to close the second half. On opening drives, the Jets offense was one of the most proficient in the league, as Gase's script helped the team score 40 points in 2019, tied for ninth in the league, with all 40 points coming over the season's final 10 weeks.
On opening drives, Darnold finished top five in the league in completion percentage, yards per game, touchdowns, sacks taken and passer rating, while wide receiver Jamison Crowder tied for the league lead in receptions on opening drives.
Prior to his appointment as Jets head coach, Gase brought 16 seasons of experience as a coach in the NFL, the last six calling plays for three different franchises, including record-setting offensive output as the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos (2013), his first season calling plays in the NFL. In his last position, Gase spent three seasons (2016-18) as the head coach for the Miami Dolphins, where he compiled a 23-25 record and led the franchise to a postseason berth in his first season.
In his first season under Gase's leadership (2016), quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 67.1% of his passes for a 7.7 yards per attempt average and a 93.5 passer rating, all then career highs, while also leading the league with a red zone passer rating of 119.7 as the Dolphins broke an eight-year playoff drought.
Before his time in South Florida, Gase spent a season as the offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears (2015), improving the team's rushing yardage ranking from No. 27 the season before to No. 11. Under his tutelage, quarterback Jay Cutler finished the season with the highest passer rating (92.3) of his career, threw seven fewer interceptions than the previous season, and posted a single-season-best 2.3 percent interception rate.
Prior to Chicago, Gase served on the Broncos staff in a variety of roles, including offensive coordinator (2013-14), quarterbacks coach (2011-12) and wide receivers coach (2009-10) as Denver won four AFC West titles, three playoff games and an AFC Championship.
In two seasons as the offensive coordinator, Gase oversaw a record-setting offense that produced over 430 yards per game, including 315.8 yards per game passing and 34 points per game, all the best in the league over that span. In 2013, they set NFL single-season records for most points scored (606) and most passing yards (5,444), while five different players (three wide receivers, a tight end and a running back) all scored 10+ touchdowns.
Additionally, Manning established single-season NFL records in passing yards (5,477) and passing touchdowns (55), earning NFL Most Valuable Player honors for his efforts. In three seasons under Gase (2012-14), Manning posted a 131-to-35 touchdown to interception ratio, completing 67.7% of his passes for a passer rating of 107.8.
In his first season as the team's quarterbacks coach (2011), Gase oversaw quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow, as the latter helped guide the team to a division title and a postseason berth. Under Gase, Tebow ran for 660 yards and six touchdowns, at the time, the ninth-highest rushing total by a quarterback since the merger.
He initially served on Denver's staff as the team's wide receivers coach (2009-10). In those years, he coached a pair of Pro Bowlers, first wide receiver Brandon Marshall (2009), who produced 101 receptions for 1,120 yards and 10 touchdowns, and then wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (2010), who led the league with 1,448 yards on 77 receptions (18.8 average).
Before joining the Broncos staff, Gase spent one season with San Francisco as an offensive assistant under Offensive Coordinator Mike Martz, assisting an offense that saw running back Frank Gore produce over 1,000 yards rushing.
Gase entered the NFL ranks with the Detroit Lions in 2003, serving as scouting/coaching assistant for three seasons under Steve Mariucci before becoming an offensive quality control coach in 2006 and the quarterback's coach in 2007 under Rod Marinelli. In his season as quarterbacks coach, Jon Kitna posted 4,068 passing yards, the second-highest total of his 14- year career, finishing sixth in the league in passing yards.
Gase began his coaching career as a defensive graduate assistant at LSU in 2000. He spent the following two seasons on the recruiting staff for Head Coach Nick Saban, winning a Southeastern Conference championship in 2001 and helping recruit a group of players that won the BCS National Championship in 2003.
Gase attended Michigan State University from 1996-99 earning a bachelor's degree. He and his wife, Jennifer, have a daughter, McKenzie, and two sons, A.J. and Wyatt.
