Jets fire GM Mike Maccagnan; coach Adam Gase acting GM

Adam Gase and Mike Maccagnan disagreed on whether the New York Jets should sign Le'Veon Bell in free agency. Gase is the only head coach in the National Football League now with the general manager title, making him the 20th GM to work in the AFC East after Bill Belichick was as the Patriots head coach hired in 2000.

The Jets introduced Gase as their new head coach on January 11, but within weeks it was apparent that the Maccagnan-Gase marriage wasn't going well, and Gase felt it was an awkward fit.

Elon Musk to face trial over 'pedo' claim against rescue diver
Musk tweeted the insult last summer after the underwater rescue of young football players trapped in a Thailand cave . He also urged a BuzzFeed News reporter by email to investigate Unsworth and "stop defending child rapists".

Both men denied that a rift had developed in their relationship, but sources said Johnson was so concerned that he began spending more time at the Jets' facility to monitor the Gase-Maccagnan relationship. For what it's worth, Gase later downplayed the reports. I don't know who decides that and gets to put that stuff out there, it kind of pisses me off a little bit because we have discussions on everything and that's our job.

The timing is unusual considering Maccagnan oversaw the Jets' draft less than three weeks ago, although there were rumors that he and Gase had some tension - which both denied. The Jets hired him 12 days later. According to ESPN, Maccagnan also had a significant role in initially hiring Gase, which only makes the move more shocking. 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. He also acquired left guard Kelechi Osemele from the Raiders in a trade.

ESPN suggests the GM position could be taken up by Philadelphia Eagles executive Joe Douglas, who has some ties to Gase. Safety Jamal Adams and defensive lineman Leonard Williams are also recent draft picks by Maccagnan who have become building blocks for the defense.
