Jets Fire GM Maccagnan, Name Coach Gase Interim GM
The Jets today relieved GM Mike Maccagnan of his duties, a "stunning development" that comes after both he and new coach Adam Gase "denied that the two had a rift over some personnel decisions." Gase, who was hired by Maccagnan, will become interim GM. Jets VP/Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger also was let go (NEWSDAY.com, 5/15). Eagles VP/Player Personnel Joe Douglas reportedly is the "early favorite for the position and is close with Gase" (NYPOST.com, 5/15). Other sources said that NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah is "under serious consideration for a prominent front-office position" with the Jets (TWITTER.com, 5/15).
