Todd Bowles

Head Coach

College: Temple

Hometown: Elizabeth, NJ

Experience: 21 years


Todd Bowles, the 16th full-time head coach in franchise history, returns for his third season with the Jets following a 5-11 campaign in 2016. Despite tying an NFL record last year with 75 players used in the regular season – including 49 different starters – Bowles oversaw a Jets defense in 2016 that continued to display his defensive prowess in limiting the opponent’s rushing attack, allowing just 3.69 yards per carry while holding nine different opposing lead ball carriers to under 3.5 yards per rush. Through his first two seasons at the helm, Bowles has managed a New York defensive unit that ranks in the top five in run defense, third down defense and red zone defense while also finishing in the top half of the league in takeaways.
