Mike McCarthy will only pursue Jets' head coaching position

Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington of ESPN first reported the news.

Gase will replace Todd Bowles, who was sacked by the Jets after four seasons following the end of the 2018 season.

Former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is a strong possibility for Gase's defensive coordinator, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

The Miami Dolphins dismissed Gase after going 7-9 during the 2018 regular season. He is set to become the first Jets head coach with previous National Football League head-coaching experience since Bill Parcells was hired by the franchise in 1997.

During this hiring season, the Dolphins have been the quietest among the eight teams that are or were looking for new head coaches. The 40-year-old coach worked as an assistant with Detroit, San Francisco and Denver before being promoted to offensive coordinator by the Broncos in 2013 and drawing rave reviews from Peyton Manning. 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.

Jets job is trending toward a Matt Rhule hire.
