With Adam Gase the next head coach of the Jets, rumors have begun about his potential coordinator hires.
Offensive Coordinator Candidate: Dowell Loggains
Barring any contractual snags, you can expect Dowell Loggains to join Adam Gase as his main offensive assistant with the Jets, sources say. Loggains served as Gase’s offensive coordinator in Miami in 2018.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) January 10, 2019
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
My understanding is Williams, ex-Broncos coach Vance Joseph and ex-Colts coach Chuck Pagano are the 3 in the mix to be Jets coach Adam Gase's DC. https://t.co/J1c94t5aNw— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 10, 2019
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.
