In the interim, Coach Gase will be the acting General Manager. Adam Gase will take over as GM on an interim basis. Oakland did something similar when it hired draft expert Mike Mayock away from NFL Media to be the team's general manager.
The stunning decision by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson was announced in a statement posted Wednesday on the team's Twitter account. "However, I came to the decision to make a change after much thought and a careful assessment of what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets". "I would like to thank Mike for his time and effort during his tenure, and I wish only the best for him and his wife Betty". Gase and Maccagnan also reportedly disagreed over free-agent strategy with Johnson, according to ESPN. There were some rumors, however, that there was tension between Maccagnan and Gase - which both denied.
Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could emerge as a candidate, Schefter suggested. For what it's worth, Gase later downplayed the reports. "We have discussions on everything".Читайте также: Google to push new ads on its apps to snare shoppers
Pretty insane, obviously. And then there's this: According to New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta, Gase - the head coach and now acting GM, mind you - didn't want the team to sign Bell to the four-year, $52.5 million contract inked in March.
The Jets finished at 4-12 last season and have won just 14 games over the previous three years, finishing last in the AFC East each time.
Rumors of a rift between Maccagnan and Gase floated across NY for weeks, but both were adamant publicly that they shared a healthy working relationship. Head Coach Todd Bowles paid the price with his job in the off-season, but Maccagnan was seemingly handed a reprieve and was given the green light to mount a particularly aggressive offseason.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
