Gang Green Went With Adam Gase
A lot of people were surprised when the New York Jets went with Adam Gase over Mike McCarthy as their new head coach. Well, now we have a little more clarity to the situation and why the Jets and McCarthy didn’t mesh.
According to CBS Sports, the ex-Packers head coach and the Jets front office talks broke off over staffing issues. McCarthy apparently had concerns with the structure and composition of the team’s front office. He was ‘not going to mesh’ with their direction.

It seems that when the Jets maybe weren’t going to let him choose the coordinators around him, McCarthy lost some interested and instead will sit out from the sidelines for the season. McCarthy will still be getting the $9 million he is owed next season by the Packers. He’ll enjoy some family time before likely going back for a head coaching gig next offseason that becomes open.
The Jets went with ex-Dolphins head coach Adam Gase to run the show and are reportedly going to hire ex-interim Browns head coach Gregg Williams to become their new defensive coordinator.
Baylor head coach Matt Rhule also reportedly had differences with the Jets about wanting his own staff, and decided not to pursue the position.
