But according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, McCarthy doesn't want to be considered for any other head coaching vacancy other than the Jets'.
Even with two National Football League head coaching vacancies still unfilled, former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy will not be coaching in the National Football League in 2019. He's the Jets' first hire with previous National Football League head coaching experience since Bill Parcells' three-year tenure from 1997-99. 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. He finished his time in Green Bay with a 125-77-2 record and led it to a Super Bowl win in 2011. In 2013, Gase was promoted to offensive coordinator, a position he held through the 2014 season. In three seasons with Miami, he went 23-25, reaching the playoffs in 2016. Injuries and personnel errors doomed the Dolphins, and they were never close to contention in Gase's tenure again. The team hasn't had a winning season since 2015.
Gase will work closely with general manager Mike Maccagnan, who was retained by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, to put together a competitive roster around Darnold. His insistence on using receiver Jarvis Landry as a short-area receiver looked a bit silly when Landry went to the Browns in 2018 and became much more than that.
Now, they are reportedly gravitating toward hiring another college coach.
