FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The New York Jets have hired former Dolphins assistant Dowell Loggains as their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Loggains is reunited with Jets coach Adam Gase after serving as Miami's offensive coordinator last season under the then-Dolphins head coach.

The 38-year-old Loggains also worked with Gase in Chicago in 2015 as the Bears' QBs coach before taking over the offense the following season when Gase left for Miami.

During Gase's introduction as Jets coach last Monday, he said he will call the plays for New York's offense. Loggains will assist Gase while also working closely with the quarterbacks, including Sam Darnold.

Loggains, a former backup QB at Arkansas from 2001-04, began his pro career as a scouting assistant with Dallas in 2005.

He spent eight years with Tennessee in several roles, including offensive coordinator from 2012-13. Loggains spent the 2014 season with Cleveland as the Browns' quarterbacks coach before being hired by Chicago.
