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

Mike McCarthy

Mike Francesa opened Thursday's show by reacting to the Jets' hiring of Adam Gase as head coach.

The Miami Dolphins dismissed Gase after going 7-9 during the 2018 regular season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken, former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, and Baylor head coach Matt Rhule are believed to have been the other finalists for the job.

The Jets have hired Adam Gase as head coach.

Fourth-tier teams prove FA Cup fairytale lives on
Watford manager Javi Gracia changed his entire starting lineup from the team that drew 3-3 at AFC Bournemouth last week. However, Foxes captain Morgan - who started the match - said: "I think any criticism (of Puel) would be unfair".

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

McCarthy had been fired with four games left in the season after a poor start but is still on contract until 2019 where he is slated to make $8 million. Of course, NY did plenty of research on all their candidates, but it couldn't have hurt Gase's resume to have Manning go to bat for him.

The Dolphins reached the playoffs in Gase's first year. 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. They likely are interested in him with the hope he could groom quarterback Sam Darnold the same way he did with Aaron Rodgers. That could mean the Dolphins already know who their next head coach will be but they just waiting until that coach's season is over.
