The team announced Wednesday it fired its offensive coordinator.
"We appreciate John's contributions and wish him the best moving forward," coach Todd Bowles said in a statement.
Morton, in his first and only season with the Jets, guided New York's offense to a disappointing No. 28 overall ranking in yards per game with 305.2. It was under his tutelage, however, that quarterback Josh McCown had a career year, throwing for 2,926 yards, 18 touchdowns and just nine interceptions.
