Christopher Johnson: Joe Douglas Will Lead Coaching Search; Jets Considering Changes to Organizational Structure

Jets Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson addressed the media on Monday after the firing of head coach Adam Gase and actually made comments that seem...reasonable.

The Jets haven’t made the Playoffs in a decade, and Johnson’s tenure as CEO has been disastrous. With this in mind, it’s going to take more than a few words for anybody to feel better about this team. We need to results.

That said, these comments strike a different chord than those we have heard in past press conference. Two years ago the Jets were fixated on hiring a head coach with an offensive background. This time it sounds like they will be open to the right candidate. The potential change to the organization’s structure is also noteworthy. Plenty of successful teams have the Jets’ current arrangement where the head coach and general manager both report directly to the owner, but it doesn’t fit this particular ownership group well. That adjustment would be a welcome development.
