Mike LaFleur and the Jets part ways after two seasons

For the second time in three years, the Jets will proceed with the search for an offensive coordinator.

The team and Mike LaFleur parted ways after two seasons together, according to Brian Costello of the Post. New York — allowing LaFleur to pursue other opportunities — will begin its process on Thursday.

It was a tough year for the Jets and their offense, a unit that spat throughout the year amid injuries and inconsistencies from Zach Wilson and Mike White. Joe Flacco started four games, including the season finale.

The New York offense hasn’t scored a touchdown in the last three games, losing to Jacksonville, Seattle and Miami. His average of 17.4 points per game was the fourth lowest in the NFL.

After hiring Robert Saleh, the head coach brought LaFleur with him from the 49ers, where he previously served as San Francisco’s passing game coordinator. New York then drafted Zach Wilson out of BYU with the No. 2 pick and positioned him as their quarterback of the future.

But the Jets only finished 4-13 in 2021, as Wilson missed time with a PCL injury.

The Jets finished 7-10 in 2022 — ending the year on a six-game losing streak and losing seven of their last eight games — and their offense spat behind quarterback inconsistencies and a season-ending injury at the rookie running back Breece Hall. They benched Wilson, lost White to injury, and had to start Wilson again anyway.
