Will The Jets Keep Hold of Coach Todd Bowles After 2017?

The time to decide Todd Bowles’ fate with the Jets is swiftly approaching. With just two games remaining in the 2017 season, acting owner Christopher Johnson must determine sooner rather than later if he believes Bowles is the right man to lead the team next season and beyond.

Bowles, though, is not interested in campaigning for himself, Daniel Popper of the New York Daily News reports.

The coach, in the third year of a four-year contract, refused to answer multiple questions about his future with the organization Thursday in Florham Park.

When asked what he feels he proved to ownership this season by winning five games with a roster many thought was the worst in the NFL, Bowles said, “I’m not going to talk about my job.”

Later, Bowles was asked how badly he wants to return to the Jets, considering the strong bonds and connections he’s made with the players. He gave the same answer. “I’m not going to talk about my job,” he said.

The responses are understandable from Bowles, a humble man who rarely discusses his successes with reporters. But the Jets are mathematically out of the playoffs, and now would seem like a good time to talk publicly about the impressive job he’s done this season.

Bowles said “it’s not” hard to avoid thinking about his job security.

“Next game,” Bowles added. “It’s my livelihood to try and win the next game and that is what I go to work and practice for.”
