While Saleh’s record is nothing to write home about, he took over for a franchise that has not made the playoffs since 2011. In Saleh’s first year, the Jets struggled to a 4-13 record, which led to one of the best draft classes in franchise history.

The Jets saw improvement in Saleh’s second year as the Jets stormed out to a hot start but finished with a 7-10 record. While the Jets missed the postseason again, there is hope for the future because of how well the 2022 rookie class played.

Saleh and the Jets still have plenty to figure out, including the quarterback position, ahead of year three. However, it seems that Saleh and the Jets’ management are starting to turn this ship around.
