No one’s opinion of Jets heed coach Adam Gase is more important than quarterback Sam Darnold’s. He is the future and his success is the biggest factor for the next decade.
“I can’t say enough good things about him,” Darnold told The Post on Thursday.
The San Clemente natives most likely echoed the same mid season when Jets CEO Christopher Johnson announced that Gase would be back for 2020.
This season hasn’t gone as planned. The Jets missed the playoffs for the ninth straight season and the offense is ranked last in the NFL. Darnold has shown progress, but not the massive sophomore jump everyone was hoping for.
Regardless, Darnold believes that Gase is the right guy for his development. He said he and Gase communicate “as much as possible” through FaceTime, texting and in person.
“He loves coaching and he loves being around the guys. He loves football,” Darnold said. “He just loves the grind of being in the building and trying to put certain plays together. He can’t get enough of it.”
