McCarthy does have competition for the gig including former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase, Baylor coach Matt Rhule, and former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell.
A person familiar with the decision told Associated Press that Gase has agreed to replace Todd Bowles, who was sacked by the Jets after he went 24-40 in four seasons. 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. Gase was just 23-25 but won five of six games against the Jets. Loggains previously worked under Gase in the same capacity with the Dolphins.
