GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) -- The NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo is reporting former Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy is “very high” on the New York Jets list of replacements for current Head Coach Todd Bowles.
Bowles is 24-38 since becoming the Jets head coaching in 2015. The team is 4-10 this season.
“If Mike McCarthy decides that he wants to jump right in a coaching this could be a landing spot for him. If he’s not at the top of the Jets’ list, I’m told that he is very high up there. They love the work that he did with the Green Bay Packers offensively,” Mike Garafolo said on NFL Network.
Garafolo added McCarthy could decided to take a year off from coaching after spending the past 13 years in Green Bay.
Since McCarthy was fired following the team’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13, McCarthy has also been linked to the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns fired its head coach Hue Jackson in Week 8. Cleveland’s front office and roster is full of links to the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers, under interim head coach Joe Philbin will play against the New York Jets this Sunday.
