Mike McCarthy Only Interested in Coaching Jets Next Season


Jets fans have stated mixed opinions about the former Miami Dolphins head coach taking charge of Gang Green.

But for Joseph, if head coach of the Bengals doesn't work out, he might have to settle for a coordinator job somewhere considering Cincinnati and Miami are the only head-coach openings left. Francesa stated that former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was clearly the preferred choice of the fan base. 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. Counting the playoffs, McCarthy and Gase won the same number of games between 2015-18.

The AFC East will be interesting in 2019.

The Packers fired McCarthy after a surprising home loss to the Arizona Cardinals on December 2, ending a 13-year run in Green Bay.

He worked as an assistant with Detroit, San Francisco and Denver before being promoted to offensive coordinator by the Broncos in 2013 and drawing rave reviews from Peyton Manning. They likely are interested in him with the hope he could groom quarterback Sam Darnold the same way he did with Aaron Rodgers.

The Dolphins have interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen.

Instead, the Jets opted for Gase, who has a solid reputation for working with quarterbacks.
