Adam Gase to become Jets head coach, per report

Mike McCarthy

Report: Mike McCarthy has no interest in any other job outside of Jets

McCarthy was sacked as the Packers' head coach mid-way through the 2018 season. Per ESPN's Rich Cimini, Baylor head coach Matt Rhule-the preferred choice among some-wasn't quite as pliable. The Jets had talked to several candidates, most notably former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, but decided Gase was their man on Wednesday. Despite having the likes of Myles Garrett, Denzel Ward, Joe Schobert, Damarious Randall, Larry Ogunjobi and Jabrill Peppers, the Browns ranked in the bottom 3 in total defense in 2018. In three seasons with Miami, he went 23-25, reaching the playoffs in 2016. Gase was the Broncos' offensive coordinator during Manning's record-breaking 2013 season. They likely are interested in him with the hope he could groom quarterback Sam Darnold the same way he did with Aaron Rodgers. "That was our outlook", McCarthy said. He was sacked, as expected, immediately after the 2018 season. The team hasn't had a winning season since 2015.
