Former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase has agreed to become the new head coach with the New York Jets. Joseph has just one season of experience as a defensive coordinator, but that did come back in 2016 when under Gase when the Dolphins finished 18th in the National Football League in points allowed.

McCarthy was sacked as the Packers' head coach mid-way through the 2018 season. The two men spearheading the Jets coaching search left all options open when asked to identify the type of candidate they wanted to run their franchise.

McCarthy coached in Green Bay for 12 seasons and finished with a record of 135-85-2.

Francesa offered an optimistic take on Gase's coaching attributes.

The second factor that pushed things in Gase's favor with the Jets' front office was his willingness to let others help him to build his staff. He won 125 regular-season games, 10 playoff games and a Super Bowl between 2006 and 2018.

The Green Bay Packers announced Matt LaFleur as the team's 15th head coach on Wednesday. The team hasn't had a winning season since 2015.

Gase was Denver's quarterbacks coach when Manning signed with the Broncos in 2012. That's in line with modern National Football League philosophy, but given Gase's history as a head coach-which isn't any more impressive than Bowles' on its face-this could be an uphill battle for a team in need of talent at several positions along the roster.
