The New York Jets fired head coach Adam Gase after their 2-14 season.
The Jets finished their season with a 28-14 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday.
Gase has been under enormous pressure throughout the campaign and his departure was confirmed after the defeat.
“This evening, I informed Adam Gase he will no longer serve as the head coach of the Jets,” Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement.
“During his time here, I had the pleasure to get to know Adam and his wonderful family and wish them nothing but the best moving forward.
“While my sincere intentions are to have stability in our organisation – especially in our leadership positions – it is clear the best decision for the Jets is to move in a different direction.

“We knew there was a lot of work that needed to be done when Adam joined us in 2019. Our strong finish last year was encouraging, but unfortunately we did not sustain that positive momentum or see the progress we all expected this season.
“To our fans, it is obvious we have not been good enough. We are committed to building a strong organisation, on and off the field, and will continue to provide the necessary resources to field a team that you can be proud of.”
Gase was in charge of the Jets for two seasons, overseeing a 9-23 win-loss record.
The Jets have not made the playoffs since 2010.
