One disagreement between Adam Gase and Mike Maccagnan/Christopher Johnson...
Gase absolutely did not want to sign Le’Veon Bell, per sources. In fact, he made it clear that he didn’t want to spend a lot of money on any running back.
Liked the player, didn’t love the money is how I heard it on Le’Veon Bell. Adam Gase also didn’t love the price tag on CJ Mosley. It all added up. https://t.co/BOZw4b5GwX
Breaking: The Jets have fired GM Mike Maccagnan and named head coach Adam Gase as acting GM. The team also fired VP of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger, sources tell @AdamSchefter
Jets let their GM:
Go nuts in 2018 free agency
Trade everything to draft Sam Darnold
Fire Todd Bowles
Hire Adam Gase
Spend tons of money on Le’Veon Bell
Spend tons of money on CJ Mosley + more
Run the 2019 NFL Draft
Then fired him.
Justified or not the process is real weird.
Adam Gase went from coaching the #Dolphins to a 13-19 record the past two seasons to running the #Jets all by himself. Head coach and active GM.
Let’s check in with Adam Gase:
Adam Gase's eyes have been named GM of the Jets
The #Jets vehemently denied any rift between Mike Maccagnan and Adam Gase. They reiterated over and over that there would be no change after the draft.
The circus act they’ve worked so hard to rid themselves of is back.
So now @nyjets
Sam Darnold within his first year in the #NFL will have 2 Head Coaches/2 offensive coordinators/2 GM’s. Your next GM pool is so small now-Has to be ok working with Gase/Love Sam/Love Bell/Love Q will....more young QBs are ruined then they are made🤷🏼♂️😡😡😡😡

Last Friday, Adam Gase was asked about reports that there's discord between him and Mike Maccagnan: "I don't know who decides to put that stuff out there. It kind of pisses me off a little bit."
Clearly there was a power struggle. Maccagnan is out. Heimerdinger is out.
Christopher Johnson just finished a call with beat writers. He insisted this wasn't a power struggle, and that his decision to fire Maccagnan had nothing to do with Gase. But he also said the synergy b/w AG and MM "was not everything I was hoping for." #Jets
Dude the Dolphins just did this for two seasons and Gase wrestled literally anyone who didn’t bend to his way out of the building and then STILL lost the locker room after filling it with “his” guys. Y’all are crazy. https://t.co/unEus3TYGo
Imagine hiring someone below you & then them essentially firing you.
That’s what is going on with Adam Gase & the Jets right now. This is wild.
Adam Gase rn
If Gase did not agree with the spending priorities in free agency, as @rapsheet said, how on Earth did that not get hashed out in the interview process? If GM and HC are not aligned on priorities in a critical off-season, ownership has to know before HC decision is made.
No one fails up like Adam Gase
My Costanza "You want to get nuts? Let's get nuts" plan:
- Hire Douglas as GM. Put Sashi in charge of analytics and actually build an analytics team.
- Give Gase a one year mandate to be better than .500 with this expensive roster or clean out the entire coaching staff
It was Gase vs. the front office. It’s really that simple.
WHY WOULD YOU EVER REPORT THAT GASE DIDNT WANT TO SIGN BELL YOU ARE SINGLE HANDILY GOING TO RUIN EVERYTHING @MMehtaNYDN
Can't wait for Adam gase to trade Jamal Adams for a 5th because he doesn't fit his culture 💀💀💀
asks ‘when did Gase earn the right to walk around like he’s Belichick?’
A couple thoughts on this crazy news:
1. Maccagnan should’ve been fire with Bowles obviously, so this is weird.
2. Adam Gase BETTER deliver the goods this season if he wants to play wolf pack leader.
3. Joe Douglas >>> Mike Maccagnan so sign me all the way up.
Imagine having front-row seats to the destruction that Adam Gase caused in Miami, his poor personnel decisions, and how his decision-making nearly led to a mutiny and thinking "I gotta get me some of that" #FTJ
... And if Gase was concerned about the $$ to sign Bell, that’s not only on Maccagnan but also Christopher Johnson, who signed off on it.
Also, why care about the $$ spent? Most coaches just want good players. #Jets have one of the NFL’s best playmakers - period - in Bell.
I could understand if Gase had reservations about the #Jets signing Bell. Maybe he wasn’t on board because he had his concerns. But now that he’s here, I’d have to believe he sees the value in Bell being an ultimate security blanket for Darnold. ...
Kliff Kingsbury & Adam Gase have failed up at great lengths and I can't understand why.
‘Adam Gase Usurped Mike Maccagnan to Claim #Jets Iron Throne’ Why this move (and the timing of it) might not be as dysfunctional as it looks https://t.co/Hc3aTMchOA
Johnson says #Jets HC Adam Gase will assist in the search for a new GM.
Last take on the #Jets FO situation/Gase:
I want Daniel Jeremiah & Douglas to be hired as the GM & the VP of personnel. Badly. Think they both have an excellent pedigree & are smart football people.
But I don’t want them hired in this situation with Gase as the puppet master
Jets fans wondering why they didn’t make an aggressive play/offer for free agents Mitch Morse or Matt Paradis...
Adam Gase made it clear that he did not want to pay big money for two positions in free agency:
Running back and Center.
He’s gonna shape everything around the qb. EVERTHING. You can’t just go get a good GM now-that GM now has to be good, willing to work with Gase, have liked Sam, liked Bell, like Q Williams—the pools now as small as can be. It’s about structure
A guy that is emerging as a candidate for the GM is job Champ Kelly, who’s with the #Bears, per NFL Network
Gase and Kelly were together in Chicago and Denver. #Jets
“That guy, Mike Maccagnan, hired that guy, Adam Gase. That guy, Adam Gase, thought that guy was incompetent and that guy got that guy fired. The guy he hired got him fired. That is a new low” -@PabloTorre
Gase just won a power play and he still doesn’t want control of 53. Still looking for a good point against this other than “it doesn’t look good”
Important to note that Gase is repped by Jimmy Sexton (who I think owned the Dolphins?) who has a direct line to Ian. If you go through all of the positive Adam Gase spin coming out of his many Blunders the last 3 yrs you will find it's Ian who is reporting it. https://t.co/2L3NAtyfYl

Giving Mike Maccagnan the checkbook and authority to build offseason plan and then firing him? Bold strategy, #Jets
Taking this break in my vacation to say that the Jets are absolutely on fire right now because Adam “bugeye” Gase is now the acting GM... that is all, back to New Orleans for me! -@ColdFrontRyan
Does this mean we get another Adam Gase press conference?
You're the one who wanted Gase as HC lmao! Why are you all over the place with your opinions?
Nowadays we cant even sit down for long during grog sesh sa gase beka eh
Mac was a Pawn for Johnson to get the people he wanted now he’ll hire a competent GM to take the ship and didn’t allow Gase to steer it away from his vision. I’m happy with what we did with his vision so far 🤷🏽♂️
Adam Gase is a Warlock and has Jets ownership under a spell. How else can you explain them giving all the power to a guy who made the Dolphins the worst team in football. https://t.co/hFr4TdoOsS
Agreed....but we ain't stupid...Gase lied ...Johnson lies!Jet fans won't trust either one going forward..and why should we?
MM had too many swings and misses. Should of been let go with Bowles. But to now give a guy like gase all this power is scary considering he hasn’t done anything and many of his players disliked him and u know Mosley and Bell will r certainly not fans of Gase.
That's what I'm saying Wood Who is Adam Gase and what has he won
@DavidApplebaum5 @NYJets_Media @MMehtaNYDN
I don’t think Gase was responsible for any of the moves this offseason apparently he thought Bell and Mosley were overpays but I worry about the role he will now have going forward
They fired the GM and put Gase in for now, it's his show
Feeling damn good about my Dolphins beating the hell out of Gase and the dysfunctional J-E-T-S twice the year! #FinsUp https://t.co/gU9zAqhgEG
What’s the likelihood of Gase becoming CEO of the @nyjets
in a couple of months? At this rate, Christopher Johnson’s going to fire himself.
You bet. Gase gets a year. No whining about Mac’s roster. Not an excuse. Coach ‘em Up.
I also heard whispers, that in part, there was head butting regarding how much Bell was paid. Gase thought overpaid. So now, Bell is supposed to play for a coach who thought he was overpaid. And the whole thing was about, getting paid. #PlotThickens #notgonnamakeit
Well ya he wanted the job. To me points more at wilpon just like gase / mac situation points to johnson
I don’t want another hc either but the writing is on the wall. But honestly i also didn’t understand the gase hire. I still don’t But I would love to be proven wrong. Love to
Adam Gase is in complete control of the Jets. Anyway, hope all is well...
I know he got his $ but you would have to think CJ Mosley is wondering if he should have taken less money, stay with the Ravens, than dealing with a HC in Gase who thinks CJ was overpaid by the GM who just got fired for signing him.
Why would Douglas take it if Gase has total roster control, there has to be a better job next off-season right?
@FreshPrince_092 @a1everthing @BR_NFL @BleacherReport
Maccagnan should have been terminated after the season.Christopher Johnson can say all he wants but he can not sell me that this wasn't a power move by Gase .Besides being dysfunctional ,our team has huge credibility problems.
if you had to compare Adam Gase to a character from the Office who do you got?
What if... the Macc Firing is because of his indecisiveness on draft day to move Down, and not gain anymore picks? Combined with his non-CJ ties(hired by woody). Get @MoveTheSticks
in here and give gase 1 year to be at least 8-8, if not, Bye Felicia. Rebuild from top down. #Jets
I don’t think u understand what this is going to do to a locker room and the media already chomping at gase. It’s not even June. I seen this movie before.
You keep handing the keys to a guy who can’t lead and can’t build a roster and you get...former Miami Coach Adam Gase destroying the Jets.
Gase should just stick to being on OC. He's not head coaching or GM material.
As a Native New Yorker for 30 yrs who lives in South Florida (I’m a Steeler fan btw), I’ve seen a whole lotta Dolphin HC’s come and go. Gase is one of the worst I’ve seen. He accomplished zero in Miami. He’s got the attitude of someone who’s had success but he’s done zip #NYJets
biggest problem is ownership. Woods needs to sell. Who is Christopher Johnson anyway? Leadership starts at the top. Gase needs to stay in his lane. The GM signs players, he needs to coach, which performance to date has been lacking. #nfl
Did we get a CrossCode Switch Release Date?@DRT_Danny
I just curved ol girl so hard a few minutes ago, I'm already learning from Gase
Why keep Gase if he didn’t want the players at that price? I’m sure that’ll be a good locker room environment... @nyjets
Adam Gase disagreed with price tag for Bell, Mosley https://t.co/8eFYav9Gw0
