New York Jets coach Todd Bowles hired veteran quarterbacks coaches Chris Ash and Tony Banks to coach their starting quarterbacks and tight ends this season, sources told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
Both Ash and Banks were in New York on Monday for the Jets’ offseason workout.
Bowles and Ash were in Philadelphia on Monday.
Bowls has a record of 37-26 and has a 10-8 record with a 5-5 record in his last five games.
The Jets have lost six of their last seven games.
Ash has a 9-10 record with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Jets and Philadelphia Eagles are tied for second in the NFL in scoring (34.2 points per game) and rank second in total defense (95.9 yards per game).
Ash’s Eagles have allowed an average of 21.8 points per contest in his first two seasons in Philadelphia, the third-highest mark in the league behind the Baltimore Ravens (27.2), the Green Bay Packers (24.9) and the New York Giants (23.8).
Ash is 4-2 in his career against the Jets.
Ash, who has been with the Eagles since 2010, spent the 2011 season as the quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers.
Ash coached Tom Brady and Ryan Fitzpatrick at the NFL Scouting Combine and the NFL Draft.
He was hired in March to become the Jets offensive coordinator.
He has also coached at the University of Texas, Arizona State and Florida State.
Ash was in the Jets organization as an assistant coach in 2008, 2007 and 2006.
The Cowboys, New York Bills, Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers have also hired Bowles as their quarterbacks coach.
The Patriots have fired offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and coach Bill O’Brien, who led them to a playoff berth.
