Jets Extend Contracts of GM Mike Maccagnan and Head Coach Todd Bowles

It’s been a busy day for the Jets, who today announced on their website that they have extended the contracts of general manager Mike Maccagnan and head coach Todd Bowles.

“We are very happy to have extended both Mike and Todd. During their time here, they have worked together to help the organization build a foundation on which to grow,” said Jets CEO Christopher Johnson. “ They are identifying, developing, and getting productivity out of our players. I believe we are headed in the right direction. This provides us continuity and stability as we continue to move this team towards sustained success. We still have a lot of work to do and I am excited to work closely with both of them as we move forward.”

Maccagnan, hired to his position on Jan. 13, 2015, is focused on building the team’s foundation through the draft. Named the 16th full-time head coach in franchise history on Jan. 14, 2015, Bowles instilled a culture change in 2017 and players continually praised the improved chemistry in the locker room. Working together, the Jets’ football leaders have drafted and developed key players including Leonard Williams, Darron Lee, Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye and Robby Anderson. The roster was also bolstered with trades for Demario Davis and Jermaine Kearse in the offseason as they both became key contributors for the defense and offense respectively.

The Jets will conclude their 2017 regular season against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium on New Year’s Eve. The Green & White head into the offseason with financial flexibility and three picks in the first two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft.
