The Jets are in the midst of another lost season, and it has been an open secret for some time that head coach Todd Bowles is on his way out. However, all indications to this point had been that Bowles would at least make it through the end of 2018 before getting the ax, but Albert Breer of TheMMQB believes it could happen sooner.
As of right now, there are only four games left on the schedule (including today’s game against the Bills), so identifying an interim head coach would not be a particularly big challenge. Plus, as Breer writes, the situation in New York has gone sideways. Earlier this week, we heard rumors of a rift between Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan, and while Bowles quickly did his best to quash those rumors, it does not seems as if it would do either Bowles or the team much good to postpone the inevitable any longer.
It is unclear if Breer is referring to more than the reported tension between head coach and GM when he says that increasing internal turmoil has been made him rethink his stance that Bowles would survive the season, but it seems as if Bowles could soon become the third head coach to lose his job before Week 17.
