Bowles Picks Gailey to Run Offense, Develop Smith
As expected, New York Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles added veteran offensive coordinator Chan Gailey to his staff. Gailey brings a level of experience to the staff that would be difficult to rival elsewhere. His coaching career dates back to 1974 with Florida and has totaled 38 years covering positional coaching, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, special teams and head coach. Gailey won a division title in Dallas with the Cowboys as their Head Coach in 1998.
His experience could prove to be invaluable and make him the perfect fit for Bowles, a first time head coach. The results he has produced with young, inexperienced quarterbacks along the way in Pittsburgh, Miami, and Buffalo could be just what the Jets are looking for as they hope to develop Geno Smith as he enters his third season.
