The New York Jets are expected to hire Adam Gase as their new head coach, Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington of ESPN report via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.

The Jets reached out to Gase soon after he was fired by the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 31. He was only 23-25 in three seasons, but he dominated the Jets, winning five of six meetings.

Gase would become the Jets' first head coach since Bill Parcells (1997) with NFL head-coaching experience. He also would fill the need for an offensive-minded coach, something they haven't had since Rich Kotite (1995-1996).

With a potential franchise player in Sam Darnold, the Jets wanted a coach with a background in developing quarterbacks. Gase has worked with many, most notably Peyton Manning. He is also expected to be the primary play caller.

The Jets' hierarchy opted for Gase over former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy and fast-rising college coach Matt Rhule of Baylor.
