The New York Jets are getting more bad news after their Thursday night loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Coming off the heels of an embarrassing loss, the team is now losing one of their coaches for a year.
The suspension comes as this coach was caught violating the NFL’s gambling policy.
So which coach is out for a year, and how are fans reacting to the news?
Jets WR Coach Gets Suspended While Fans Take Digs At Zach Wilson
News of the suspension of wide receivers coach Miles Austin came out from Adam Schefter late Friday afternoon.
Term update: Jets WR coach Miles Austin is being suspended for violating the league’s gambling policy for a minimum of a year, pending the appeal, per me and @RichCimini.

While Schefter reports the suspension is for a minimum of one year, it didn’t stop fans from making comments over the suspension.
However, it was shocking to see how many of the comments were shots at Zach Wilson, the Jets quarterback.
His poor play is leading him to become the joke of Twitter with fans, as they believe Austin was betting on Wilson’s player prop.

With Wilson having shaky passing numbers this season, fans feel Austin always took the under on passing yards.
Always Wilson unders.

But another fan believes Austin was betting against the second-year quarterback.
I mean who hasn't bet against Zac Wilson

The news even had someone believing betting on the Wilson under prop was “easy cash.”
Zach Wilson lower on yards, easy cash.

While the story was about the Jets wide receiver coach, the reactions kept being about Wilson.

However, no one says if he was betting on Wilson or not.
But it’s not stopping fans from believing he was betting on Wilson and his player props.
