Jets signed coach Todd Bowles to a two-year extension through 2020.
GM Mike Maccagnan also landed a two-year extension, linking the two together for another three years. The Jets are currently sitting 5-10 and are just 1-5 over their last six games, but Gang Green greatly exceeded expectations in 2017 when most thought they'd be the laughingstock of the league following an offseason roster purge. It turned out the players they released were over the hill anyway. Bowles is 20-27 to this point in his Jets tenure. Keeping them around also likely keeps OC John Morton in tow after a successful first year calling the offense. Fri, Dec 29, 2017 12:37:00 PM

The New York Post's Brian Costello passes along "rumblings from league circles" that the Cardinals would have interest in Jets coach Todd Bowles if Bruce Arians retires.

Bowles, of course, was the Cardinals' defensive coordinator for two years under Arians in Arizona before he landed the Jets' head-coaching gig. Per Costello, Bowles was "extremely popular with ownership" in the desert, and they'd be interested in bringing him back. However, the point could be moot since it looks like Bowles will keep his Jets job. Arizona is unlikely to trade for him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jets coach Todd Bowles is expected to return next season.

Bowles looked unlikely to finish out his four-year deal going into the season, but he should return after winning more games than expected. With a bottom of the league roster, Bowles reportedly "wants to make sure the Jets spend money this offseason" after not making any impact signining last year. Bowles is only signed through 2018, so the Jets will likely give him an extension to avoid lame-duck status.

Both rookie S Jamal Adams and CB Buster Skrine voiced support for Todd Bowles following Sunday's loss to the Saints.

After starting out 3-2, the Jets have lost seven of their last nine games. Aside from a bad showing in Denver, however, they have remained competitive even against top teams including a close game with the Saints on Sunday with Bryce Petty at quarterback. It would be a surprise if Bowles is let go after the season.

Jets coach Todd Bowles plans to be more involved on the offensive side of the ball in 2017.

"It's just the way I feel as a coach, and have evolved to, and where I need to be," Bowles said. "To understand everything from that (offensive) standpoint, I need to be heavily involved." Bowles is also relinquishing defensive play-calling duties to DC Kacy Rodgers. Headed into his third-year on the job, Bowles appears to believe he needs to be more CEO-minded in his approach.

The New York Daily News' Gary Myers reports Todd Bowles will be back as the Jets' coach in 2017.

It's hard to put the blame squarely on Bowles' shoulders for the Jets' disappointing 4-11 (to this point) season. Ryan Fitzpatrick had an outlier season in 2015, playing the best he ever has in his career that year, and the Jets went all in on him again for 2016 only to see FitzMagic revert to his old ways as a turnover machine. Eric Decker also only played three games before season-ending shoulder and hip surgeries. Bowles' defense also crumbled, but Darrelle Revis took a noticeable hit from Father Time, and DE Muhammad Wilkerson is a year removed from a broken leg. Bowles appears set to get a third year at the helm, but GM Mike Maccagnan is going to have to restock the cupboard and needs to find an answer at quarterback.

Jets coach Todd Bowles is meeting with doctors on Monday.

Bowles was hospitalized last Friday because of what he called kidney and gallbladder issues. He was able to coach the game Saturday after being released from the hospital, and he said these issues will be addressed after the season, suggesting he will coach the season finale this week.

Jets coach Todd Bowles rejoined the team Saturday morning and will travel with the squad to Gillette Stadium.

Bowles had a health scare Friday, but he seems to be okay. It is not clear if he will coach from the sidelines or the booth. Mike Caldwell was expected to serve as the interim coach if Bowles was not able to be there, and he could have an expanded role if Bowles is forced to stay in the booth.

Jets coach Todd Bowles didn't travel with the team due to an illness.

Bowles was admitted to a hospital but is in stable condition. It's not clear if he'll rejoin the team on Saturday. Mike Caldwell will serve as head coach if Bowles isn't available.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Jets aren't expected to fire Todd Bowles.

This falls in line with a report that owner Woody Johnson "remains behind" Bowles. The Jets aren't planning on making any changes to their current power structure. Bowles has two years left on his deal and should return for a third season.

Jets hired Todd Bowles as head coach.

Bowles, 51, is coming home, as he's from Elizabeth, New Jersey and played his college ball at Temple. Bowles has been the Cardinals' defensive coordinator the past two seasons after holding the same title in Philadelphia and Miami prior to his gig in Arizona. The Cardinals fielded the league's No. 6 total defense in 2013 before injuries and suspensions ripped up the 2014 club. Bowles is still a maximizer of talent and puts his players in the best position to succeed. His top task is hiring a bright mind to right the Jets' offense.

Cardinals DC Todd Bowles' second interview for the Jets' head-coaching vacancy is taking place on Tuesday.

According to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, Bowles will then conduct a second interview with the Falcons on Wednesday. That's if the Jets let Bowles escape New York without a job. Per Weinfuss' colleague Adam Schefter, "they might not."

The Jets will get the first crack at a second interview with Cardinals DC Todd Bowles.

The Falcons are also expecting to get a second interview with Bowles. But it remains to be seen if new Jets GM Mike Maccagnan will let Bowles get out of town without a deal. The Jets are unlikely to land red-hot Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, and Bowles likely has an edge on Panthers DC Sean McDermott.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution sees Cardinals DC Todd Bowles as the "leading candidate" to replace Mike Smith as Falcons head coach.

The Falcons were in the Rex Ryan hunt, but lost out to the Bills. Bowles will interview for a second time with Atlanta on Wednesday. Per the Journal-Constitution, Patriots OC Josh McDaniels is expected to stay with New England after his team advanced to the AFC Championship Game, nixing any opportunities for McDaniels to interview this week. Seahawks DC Dan Quinn is expected to go to the Jets. Bowles is said to be tight with new Falcons lead personnel man Scott Pioli, who is Bill Parcells' son in law. Bowles worked for Parcells in Dallas and Miami.

Cardinals DC Todd Bowles is getting a second interview with both the Jets and Falcons.

Bowles remains one of the biggest dominoes to fall as the coaching vacancy process drags on. He's garnered interest from the Bears and 49ers as well.
