New York Jets HIRE ROBERT SALEH as next head coach | CBS Sports HQ

by

The New York Jets have their next head coach. On Thursday, the team announced it had reached an agreement with former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh to take the job. Saleh will replace Adam Gase, who went 9-23 in his two seasons as the Jets head coach.

Saleh interviewed with both Jets CEO Christopher Johnson and GM Joe Douglas earlier this week. The Jets cast a wide net when it came to interviewing coaching candidates. Saleh was one of nine coaching candidates to be interviewed by the Jets. After helping to mold an elite 49ers defense in 2019 before falling prey to bad injury luck in 2020, Saleh was a hot candidate on the coaching market. In addition to the Jets, Saleh met with the Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Chargers, and Jacksonville Jaguars, the latter of whom ultimately hired Urban Meyer.
