ESPN's Jeff Darlington was the first to report the hire.

The Jets did not have a great 2018 season under Todd Bowles as they went a disappointing 4-12.

Gase was the head coach in Miami for three season. He is set to become the first Jets head coach with previous National Football League head-coaching experience since Bill Parcells was hired by the franchise in 1997.

A New York Jets helmet is held behind a player's back during the national anthem before NFL action against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium before the game on September 25, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Gase followed coach John Fox to Chicago in 2015 to be the Bears' offensive coordinator.

The Cincinnati Bengals and the Dolphins remain the only teams yet to name their head coach for the 2019 season. He previously worked with Peyton Manning.

Gase, 40, has a reputation as a quarterback guru.

Miami faces the Jets twice a year, as both are in the AFC East.

NY conducted interviews with newly-hired Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury, former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, and former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell for the position.

Multiple sources say the Jets wanted to make sure they hired the right coach to help develop Sam Darnold.
