Many expected New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles to be fired on Monday. It turns out the man might be safe until the end of the season.
With Christopher Johnson refusing to comment on his future immediately after the loss, things didn’t look great. It turns out, the consensus was wrong.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Bowles is safe until after the 2018 NFL season. The organization wants to avoid any rash decision.
Even after yesterday’s horrific loss, my understanding is that any possible changes coming to the #Jets would be based on a decision made after the season, rather than during. That is the expectation. Decisions won’t be rash.

Bowles, 54, is currently in his fourth year as the head man for the Jets. With a career record of 23-35, nothing’s gone right since the first season that saw him win 10 games as a rookie. In fact, he’s won just 13 games over his last 42 contests.
Worse than wins and losses is the lack of development of young Sam Darnold. Other than a few moments here and there, Darnold’s lack of progress is a troublesome factor for all involved.
The idea the Jets won’t act on Monday comes as a major surprise to many onlookers. After all, the organization has been more than fair and patient in its dealings with Bowles.
For now, Todd Bowles remains the head coach of the New York Jets and will do so as his team suffers through their bye week prior to getting back to work against the New England Patriots at home on Nov. 25.
