Who are the candidates to be Adam Gase’s coordinators with the Jets?

NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

With Adam Gase the next head coach of the Jets, rumors have begun about his potential coordinator hires.

Offensive Coordinator Candidate: Dowell Loggains

Loggains spent 2018 with Gase in Miami as Dolphins offensive coordinator. Prior to that he had stints with the Bears as John Fox’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He also has worked on offensive coaching staffs in Cleveland and Tennessee. Although Gase is familiar with Loggains.

Nothing is official yet. I would strongly prefer that Gase go in another direction. While Gase will likely be hands on with the offense, Loggains’ career has been undistinguished.

Defensive Coordinator Candidates: Vance Joseph, Chuck Pagano, Gregg Williams

At this point in time there isn’t much that makes me feel good about this hire. One of the exceptions is this list of potential coordinator candidates. This prelimary list makes me happy. I will admittedly have to dig a bit deeper, but I like the fact that all three are former head coaches. I think having a former head coach as a coordinator can be helpful, especially in a high profile job in New York.
