Adam Gase is slowly but surely putting together his coaching staff. Gase told reporters that his focus was on making sure he builds the best staff possible before moving onto really examining the roster. Brant Boyer is staying on as special teams coach, Gregg Williams is the new defensive coordinator and now Frank Pollack has signed on to coach the offensive line.
Pollack was with the Cincinnati Bengals last season, after spending 2013-2017 with the Cowboys. Pollack is a former offensive lineman himself, he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the sixth-round of the 1990 draft, played two season for the 49ers before going to Denver for two years and going back to San Francisco for the final three years of his career.
Pollack got his start in coaching as the offensive line and tight ends coach at Northern Arizona in 2005, in 2007 he was the assistant offensive line coach with the Houston Texans until going to the Oakland Raiders as the offensive line coach in 2012. In 2013 Pollack went to Dallas to be the assistant offensive line coach for two years before being promoted to offensive line coach in 2015 through 2017 (the Cowboys had a dominate offensive line during this stretch of time).
Rick Dennison is still under contract with the Jets as the offensive line coach/run-game coordinator, but with Gase bringing Pollack in it would seem the Jets will be moving on from Dennison and Pollack can start looking at ways to drastically improve the Jets offensive line.
