Jets fire GM Maccagnan, name HC Gase interim replacement

E_MK2_1172-helmet-abstract

Jets chariman and CEO, Christopher Johnson, released the following statement on Wednesday regarding the decision to fire the GM just three weeks after the NFL Draft.

If you're a NY sports fan who puts your support behind the Knicks and Jets, well, you've had better days. Gase is the only head coach in the National Football League now with the general manager title, making him the 20th GM to work in the AFC East after Bill Belichick was as the Patriots head coach hired in 2000.

NY hired Gase, who had just been fired by the Miami Dolphins, to replace Bowles, and also signed free agent running back Le'Veon Bell to a four-year contract.

"I will start a search for our new General Manager immediately".

Gase was irritated by the suggestion there were problems between the two when asked about the reports, saying last Friday: "I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there".




Adam Gase didn't take long to make his first move as New York Jets interim general manager.

Vice president of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger was also let go on Wednesday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "We have discussions on everything". In the interim, Coach Gase will be the acting General Manager.

The Jets also have what they believe is a franchise quarterback in place in Sam Darnold, who was the third overall pick in last year's draft after Maccagnan engineered a deal with Indianapolis to move up from the No. 6 spot. Instead, Maccagnan was fully involved in hiring Gase as the team's new coach.

But Maccagnan's draft history since coming to NY is otherwise shaky, at best.
