In a practice appearance at Florham Park on Wednesday, New York Jets Chairman Christopher Johnson declared head coach Adam Gase safe.

The Adam Gase era isn’t ending any time soon.

Speaking at practice on Wednesday afternoon in a brief session with the media, New York Jets Chairman Christopher Johnson ended any speculation about Gase’s job security with a commitment to the embattled first-year head coach.

“I want to assure you there will be no changes in coaches here,” Johnson said, via Robby Sabo of ESNY. “Adam has the trust of this team. He has the trust of Sam. He has Joe’s trust. He has my trust. He’s a good man. He’s a good coach.”


The brief session took place during practice. Questions ranged from Gase’s job security to Jamal Adams’s place in the organization’s future.

From an overall standpoint, Johnson preached his hatred for losing, yet remained optimistic when discussing the pairing of Gase and general manager Joe Douglas.

“It’s the trust and work I see with Sam that gives me a lot of confidence. Seeing him work with Joe, it’s a whole new dynamic (a really positive dynamic). They have the same vision of this team moving forward.”

The Jets are coming off their second victory of the season, a 34-27 triumph over the rival Giants. At 2-7 with a plethora of injuries and distractions, the team isn’t where ownership thought they’d be prior to the campaign.

Christopher Johnson’s team is currently preparing for a showdown with the Redskins in D.C. this Sunday.
