"Jeremy is a talented coach who has a sound understanding of what it takes to build a successful offense", Todd Bowles said on the Jets' website.

The Jets could also be interested in Washington's Kirk Cousins if he becomes available with the Redskins trading for Kansas City's Alex Smith.

Bates spent last season as the Jets' quarterbacks coach, aiding Josh McCown during his career season. He only lasted a year in his original NY stint, but he rejoined the team last year and oversaw a career year by 38-year-old quarterback Josh McCown.

The New York Jets finally made it official, announcing Wednesday that Jeremy Bates will be their new offensive coordinator. He has worked for Jon Gruden in Tampa, Mike Shanahan in Denver and Herm Edwards with the Jets in 2005 as quarterbacks coach. In that last season with the Broncos, Bates experienced tremendous success as Jay Cutler passed for a career-best 4,526 yards and Denver finished No. 2 in the National Football League in total offense and No. 3 in passing offense.

The Jets will have not only a new offensive coordinator in 2018, but also a new offensive line coach. In Denver, Bates served the roles as offensive assistant, wide receivers coach and QBs coach from 2006-08.

The Jets also announced the hiring of Steve Jackson as assistant defensive backs coach. Bates was also the assistant head coach/offense for Pete Carroll with the Seahawks. Bates followed Carroll to Seattle and called plays as the 'Hawks offensive coordinator for a season. Dennison was the Bills' offensive coordinator last season and held the same position during the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 championship season. His offense finished 29th in total yardage but sixth in rushing. They finished 19th in rushing (106.4 yards), 24th in points (18.6) and 24th in passing (198.9). He spent 15 years with the Broncos on the coaching staff in Denver. His past two seasons he was Tennessee's assistant secondary coach. McCutcheon informed the team he would not return this season in order to spend more time with his family.
