Jets to fire OC John Morton


After several days of sending out tweets referring to a "storm brewing" in Florham Park, New York Daily News beat write Manish Mehta is now filling in the blanks, telling Jets fans that the team is parting ways with offensive coordinator John Morton after just one season.

NY finished with a 5-11 record, which was last in the AFC East and missed the playoffs for the seventh consecutive year.

Mehta also noted the Jets have had internal discussions about promoting quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates to offensive coordinator "if he was fully invested and wanted the job", but they would look outside the organization if he didn't want it.

Morton came over to the Jets from the Saints this past season after he was the wide receivers coach in New Orleans.

The Jets finished last season 5-11, and the offense ranked 24th in the National Football League with 18.6 points per game.

The Jets on Wednesday fired Morton, according to multiple reports.

Morton, hired by Bowles on January 31, 2017, came to the Jets after a two-year stint as the Saints WR coach.
