Mike McCarthy Only Interested in Coaching Jets Next Season

Mike McCarthy Only Interested in Coaching Jets Next Season

Earlier in the day Wednesday, news broke that the Jets will hire former Dolphins coach Adam Gase. Joseph has just one season of experience as a defensive coordinator, but that did come back in 2016 when under Gase when the Dolphins finished 18th in the National Football League in points allowed. Counting the playoffs, McCarthy and Gase won the same number of games between 2015-18.

Former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is a strong possibility for Gase's defensive coordinator, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Rhule is a native New Yorker, who spent one season as an assistant offensive line coach with the New York Giants in 2012.

A source confirmed to The Athletic that the 40-year-old will become the 19th head coach in franchise history.




The Jets reached out to Gase as soon as he was sacked by the Dolphins.

The Jets finished the 2018 season 4-12 and last in the AFC East. The former first-round pick threw for 2,865 yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 13 games during his rookie campaign.

The Jets met with seven other coaches about their vacancy, including Mike McCarthy, Kris Richard, Jim Caldwell, Eric Bieniemy, Todd Monken, Matt Rhule and Kliff Kingsbury, who took the Arizona Cardinals job.
