Jets dump G.M.; search on for replacement … The New York Jets surprisingly fired G.M. Mike Maccagnan earlier this afternoon. Jets’ acting owner Chris Johnson said he did not want to fire Maccagnan after last season before taking a deeper look at the organization this off-season. However, after spending more time around the Jets this off-season, he decided Maccagnan had to go based partly on the relationship between Maccagnan and head coach Adam Gase. Gase now becomes the Jets’ interim general manager while the team looks for a full-time replacement for Maccagnan, although there is not yet a clear timetable for making a final decision.
