Jets hire Dowell Loggains as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach

The Jets officially announced the long-rumored hiring of Dowell Loggains to their coaching staff today. Loggains will hold the dual role of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Loggains has worked with Jets head coach Adam Gase in the past. They last teamed up in Miami in 2018 when Loggains also worked under Gase as an offensive coordinator.

It would be fair to say that Loggains’ track record leaves something to be desired.

I wouldn’t argue that this is as significant of a hire as Gregg Williams was for the defense. With Gase likely to take a hands on role in the offense, Loggains will mainly help implement the vision of the head coach.

I would, however, argue that this was a missed opportunity. In the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach jobs the Jets had two opportunities to bring in bright offensive minds to collaborate with Gase. That hasn’t happened.

While one might downplay Loggains’ role, I ultimately think it’s very difficult to argue that the Jets are improved by him holding these jobs.
