99.999pct of all coaches would fire assistants it meant saving their job. Bowles may be a bad coach, but this decision is far from cowardly. It's not like he is firing competent people. 

If he fires them because they did a sh*tty job then that's ok.  If he fired them cause Woody told him to, then it's cowardly

Mike Munchak quit when he was told to fire his staff.  That's Ballsy.  He never got another HC gig.  Bowles doesn't have those kind of huevos.

The problem with most of these candidates at the moment is the 6 vacant HC positions in the NFL.  All of these guys I expect to be interviewing for those first and then falling back on an OC job if they can't land another/first HC job.

If we take the HC positions out of the mix I don't see too much reason why they wouldn't want to come here compared to anywhere else in the NFL.  Most coaches probably look at a bad product as their chance to improve it making a bigger mark on their careers.  Its a challenge.

Yep agree, the main obstacle to landing the guy we want is if he gets a HC position first. 

The other thing is the opportunity John DeFilippo has as the Rams OC is to work with a #1 drafted QB in Goff. We can't offer him that but it might not matter, it might come down to what his trained eyed sees in what we have to what LA have.

I feel like Gailey knew he was on the chopping block and opted to retire rather than accept a firing that would probably be his last. This way he can take a year off and come back somewhere else. 

The only semi-head scratcher for me is the RB coach. Our problems at RB this year was not running Powell enough and trying to use Forte as a bulldozer. That's not as much an RB problem as an OC problem. I dunno, maybe he was cut for other reasons. The rest needed to go. Rogers too.

The Jets could have had the best coaches who ever lived, with this roster, they'd still be 5-11 or thereabouts. 

Uh. No. This CS was a whole new kind of suck. Try reading some of the headlines from the locker room.

I cannot ******* believe Kacy Rodgers still has a job.

Un-*******-acceptable.

Rex's "protect my buddies" culture is here to stay.

It really is a major indictment of the DC/Kacy based on this performance of this Defense. If he stays than Bowles isn't just incompetent, he is blindly loyal to a fault as well.

Fascinating really

Jets end ties with OC and fire 5 coaching assistants

A number of posters here erupt in anger and condescension with rants whine and witless attempts at jokes and GIFs

The fascinating part

If the Jets did nothing

OR

Fired every single staff member

OR

Extended all their coaches with 5 year deals

MOST of the exact same gaggle of posters would....you guessed it...

erupt in anger and condescension with rants whines and witless attempts at jokes and GIFs

This team, in case you hadn't noticed, was an embarrassment. They ALL deserve to be fired. The fact that Kacy Rodgers is still employed ANYWHERE, let alone the NY JETS is a travesty.

You could have a point here. If your HC has been paying any attention to his young QBs then maybe he should hire a OC that can compliment the QB's on the roster. 

Without mentioning your boy's name directly (lol), any vet we sign is coming to a new system too.

The most money went into the defense. It's inconceivable that Rodgers stays. It's actually inconceivable that Bowles stays. Both defensive minded with a terrible Defensive performance week after week. Bowles called the defensive plays most of the season.  Never gelled, never improved and actually regressed throughout the season. They made the announcement too soon to keep Bowles. Gailey coached a good offense. Fitz was the problem not Gailey. No long ball threat keeps the secondary tight and as I said in another post guys were open A LOT!!! Fitz just couldn't get the ball to them. Special teams sucked too. There will be some good HCs available by the end of the season. Another sad chapter in the Jets organization or should I say disorganization.

Pepper Johnson seemed like one of the better position coaches. Apparently, this purge has nothing to do with people doing a good job. This strikes me as 100% ridding the room of objective, or challenging, opinions to further insulate Bowles with yes-men as he fails miserably.

So, basically, it's Rex Ryan all over again.

Unless Johnson shot his way out of town with a promise from his rabbi, Bill Parcells, he could move on to better things rather than face the ax again with this impending debacle next January.

Interestingly enough, Wade Phillips was the head coach of the Bills back in the 90s. He was given an ultimatum to fire some coaches or be fired...he chose to be fired.

Maybe Shipp was one of the coaches that ripped Hack?

The ship is sinking.

No good OC will come here for a year.  #1 pick in 2018.

You may be right on offense, but there are some former head coaches like Pettine and Doug Marrone who had proven defensive success who may be available, why not them instead of Rodgers?  Why pick coordinators that have to cut their teeth here.

There's alot to choose from, why the Hell do we feel we need to go for Fillippo who's been with half a dozen teams and struck lightning in a bottle once with Carr in the Raiders organization.

It's Bowles' defense.  The position is only a figurehead position.  Besides, how are you going to convince someone good to come here when they know they're going to get fired after a year anyway?

Bowles is on thin ice.  He may not even make it through the season next year.
