Jets fire GM Mike Maccagnan, HC Adam Gase named interim GM

The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday

The dust has barely settled after the New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday and National Football League insiders were already floating the name of a key member of the Philadelphia Eagles front office for the role. "However, I came to the decision to make a change after much thought and careful assessment of what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets".

"This morning, I informed Mike that he was being relieved of his duties as General Manager of the team, effective immediately", Jets chairman Christopher Johnson said in a release.

The Jets fired Maccagnan on Wednesday and elevated Gase to interim GM. That connection could help serve as his next pro launching point, though Douglas has been rumored as the favorite to be the next Jets general manager even prior to Maccagnan's official ouster Wednesday.

The soap opera that is the New York Jets has had a hell of an episode today.

"I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there", Gase said.

Maccagnan's first move was hiring Todd Bowles as head coach, though Bowles was sacked earlier this year.

Heimerdinger also worked with Maccagnan in Houston and had been with the Jets for just one season as the VP of player personnel.

Maccagnan was also active in free agency in March, spending big bucks to land the likes of running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker C.J. Mosely.

Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could emerge as a candidate, Schefter suggested. The Jets also added wide receiver Jamison Crowder from the Washington Redskins and trade for offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from the Oakland Raiders.
