After an embarrassing 0-3 start to the 2020 season, there's no doubt that the New York Jets are scouting their next head coach after a report came out saying Adam Gase is coaching for his job against the Broncos. Simply, Gase has not been able to get the job done. After being labeled an offensive genius, thanks to his success with Peyton Manning, he has been able to produce just 791 total yards through three games.

Since they have a young star quarterback in Sam Darnold and some key offensive pieces already available, the Jets are likely to hire another offensive-minded head coach. With that in mind, these are the three most likely replacements for Adam Gase.

1. Eric Bieniemy (Chiefs OC)

We have seen the success that Eric Bieniemy has had with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. We also know the Andy Reid coach tree is deep. It was a surprise to many that Eric Bieniemy did not get a head coaching gig last offseason, but he should not make it through another year without a job offer. He should be at the top of the Jets' wish list.

2. Greg Roman (Ravens OC)

Greg Roman is largely credited for the success and innovation of the Baltimore Ravens offense, with Lamar Jackson winning MVP last season. He has been an offensive coordinator for seven full seasons with three different teams. In all seven seasons, Roman has featured a top-eight ground attack. It has been a while since the Jets have had a competent rushing attack, and Roman bringing that to the franchise would not only help win games, it would help the development of Darnold.

3. Bryon Leftwich (Buccaneers OC)

Bruce Arians is doing everything he can to get Bryon Leftwich a head coaching gig. He made it seem like he came back into coaching to give people like Leftwich a better chance to succeed. Arians started the car and put it in gear for Leftwich, and all he has to do is win games with this star-studded offense. There have been no shortage of struggles for Leftwich as a play-caller so far, but clearly the Jets are attracted to this.
