Five NFL head coaches next on the chopping block

When Bowles signed on with the Jets, he was one of the hottest assistants in the league coming out of Arizona, where his defensive prowess turned the Cardinals into one of the most feared units in the league.

The Jets had one good year, as they went 10-6 during his rookie campaign. Since then, it’s been all downhill. He now has a career record of 23-37 with Gang Green, and they enter the final quarter of 2018 with just three wins.


In addition to the wins and losses issue — a big issue — Bowles simply doesn’t possess what the Jets are going to need more than anything going forward. Young quarterback Sam Darnold needs an offensive-minded head coach to bring him along in the years to come. Time to move on.
