The Jets have a new head coach in former Dolphins top man Adam Gase, and the biggest question is if he and soon to be second-year QB Sam Darnold are going to be able to grow together.
The franchise really needed a coach that Darnold approved of, and Jeff Darlington says that the young QB was really in favor of the hiring of Gase.
The Jets wanted to make sure they got the right person to help Sam Darnold — and Darnold believes they did.
I’m told Darnold didn’t impose his opinion on GM/ownership, but after speaking with Gase via FaceTime on Monday night, he personally felt like Gase was the right guy.

After what happened in Miami, it’s probably a given that some players are a little afraid of dealing with Gase, but let’s hope that Darnold is right and a fresh start is all the coach needs.
