The Jets have their new offensive coordinator, and he's coming from inside the building.

New York promoted quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates to offensive coordinator as part of a trio of coaching changes the team announced on Wednesday. Rick Dennison was hired as offensive line coach/run game coordinator, and Steve Jackson was hired as assistant defensive backs coach, the team also announced.

Bates will also continue serving in his position as quarterbacks coach, a role he filled under Todd Bowles in 2017. Previously, Bates coached under Mike Tice in Chicago in 2012 and Pete Carroll in Seattle and at USC from 2009-2010.

Dennison joins the Jets after spending last season with AFC East rival Buffalo as the Bills' offensive coordinator.
