He was sacked after going 7-9 this season.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the only coaching job McCarthy is interested in taking is with the New York Jets.

Gase, who was sacked by the Dolphins after his third season in Miami netted just seven wins, was considered one of the top coaching candidates despite posting back-to-back losing seasons with the Fins.

Gase followed coach John Fox to Chicago in 2015 to be the Bears' offensive coordinator.

A source confirmed to The Athletic that the 40-year-old will become the 19th head coach in franchise history.

Rapoport notes the Jets were looking for someone to come in and elevate second-year quarterback Sam Darnold, and Gase's offensive prowess is league-renown. Loggains previously worked under Gase in the same capacity with the Dolphins.

However, the Jets weren't discouraged by the Dolphins' stagnant offenses under Gase, and now he'll get another chance to prove that earlier hype was warranted. The former first-round pick threw for 2,865 yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 13 games during his rookie campaign. Baylor head coach Matt Rhule was also reportedly linked to the job.
