Sunday January 1st, 2017

The New York Jets plan on bringing back head coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan next season, a team spokesman announced.

The Jets finished the year with a 5–11 record after Sunday's 30–10 win over the Buffalo Bills. The Jets were eliminated from playoff contention in Week 13 as they suffered their worst defeat with a 41-10 home loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Bowles is 15–17 in his two seasons at the helm for the Jets.

The Jets could still make other changes to their coaching staff.
