Peyton Manning recommended Adam Gase to Jets

He'll replace Todd Bowles, who was sacked hours after the season concluded. Gase, who ran the Dolphins the last three years, is believed to be the right man to steer prized QB Sam Darnold in the right direction.

He's been a collegiate head coach since 2013, first taking Temple to a pair of bowl games in four seasons, then taking over Baylor in the wake of the Art Briles scandal.

Rex Ryan is the poster child for that syndrome.

Those factors combined, Johnson insisted leading into the team's search, made the Jets an attractive spot for a head coach to land. "We looked at everything, and it was either NY or stay out".

Or not taken for quite some time, anyway.

McCarthy went 135-85-2 in 12-plus years with the Packers but was sacked with four games left in the 2018 season. He was hired by the Dolphins as their head coach the following season. "That was our outlook", McCarthy said.

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur went 9-23 as the Browns' head coach from 2011-12 before he was sacked.

According to Breer, Gase is expected to hire Dowell Loggains as offensive coordinator.

National Football League head coaching vacancies have started to get filled up, but Mike McCarthy remains on the market. "I think it tells you where they're at". But Tannehill missed the entire 2017 season, and though he was reasonably efficient when he did play, it wasn't the same.
