The Miami Dolphins dismissed Gase after going 7-9 during the 2018 regular season.
Gase, who was sacked by the Dolphins after his third season in Miami netted just seven wins, was considered one of the top coaching candidates despite posting back-to-back losing seasons with the Fins.
This is not a full-blown retread though (I say that mostly tongue in cheek) - Gase is replacing Todd Bowles, who spent four years with the Jets, the latter three which netted just 14 total wins.More news: US Says China Willing to Buy More American as Trade Talks End
The Cincinnati Bengals and the Dolphins remain the only teams yet to name their head coach for the 2019 season. Not counting Bill Belichick's one day stint in 2000, Gase is the first head coach hired by the Jets with past head coaching experience since Bill Parcells (1997).
Prior to his time as head coach in Miami, Gase was an offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos.
