McCarthy to take year off coaching

McCarthy to take year off coaching

But according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, McCarthy doesn't want to be considered for any other head coaching vacancy other than the Jets'.

The New York Jets stayed in the AFC East to find their new head coach - and their fans could not hide their displeasure on social media.

This came on the same day as former Jets coach Todd Bowles was hired as Tampa Bay's defensive coordinator. 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. "Gase is going to be the head coach - he has been offered the job, he has accepted the job".

The Dolphins reached the playoffs in Gase's first year.

Ryan took the same bravado act that had grown exhausted in NY and brought it to Buffalo. In 2013, Gase was promoted to offensive coordinator, a position he held through the 2014 season.

Gase followed coach John Fox to Chicago in 2015 to be the Bears' offensive coordinator. Over the span of 13 seasons the Packers went 135-85-2, while winning Super Bowl XLV.

Gase will work closely with general manager Mike Maccagnan, who was retained by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, to put together a competitive roster around Darnold.

So, the Jets have hired a head coach they believe to be a quarterback whisperer.
