Year in Review - 1976

February 10, Holtz Arrives

Lou Holtz, who had a successful four years at North Carolina State, signed a five-year contract to become the Jets' head coach.

April 8, Draft Deja Vu

Eleven years after drafting Joe Namath, the Jets tabbed another Alabama QB in Richard Todd with their first-round selection.

September 19, Iselin Illness

President Phil Iselin, who led the Jets for eight years, suffered a cardiac arrest while attending the team's game at Denver. Three months later, Iselin suffered a fatal heart attack while at his office.

December 9, Holtz Departs

Holtz, deciding he wasn't right for the pros, resigned as Jets head coach with one game to go and returned to college coaching. Mike Holovak was named interim coach for the season finale vs. Cincinnati.

December 12, Joe's Last Stand

Namath played in what was to be his final game as a Jet in a 42-3 loss to the Bengals.
