Former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase agreed Wednesday night to take the Jets job, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.
McCarthy was sacked as the Packers' head coach mid-way through the 2018 season.
Other than the Browns, the Jets are the only team that has shown any interest in McCarthy.
Even with two National Football League head coaching vacancies still unfilled, former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy will not be coaching in the National Football League in 2019.
Gase has earned his reputation as a coach who works well with quarterbacks, but his offensive philosophies as a head coach often provided curious results.
The Dolphins reached the playoffs in Gase's first year. Over the span of 13 seasons the Packers went 135-85-2, while winning Super Bowl XLV.

Georgia also has a commitment from 4-star quarterback John Rhys Plumlee, but he is yet to sign a letter of intent. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Fields completed 27-of-39 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman.
He has served as an assistant coach for the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears before being hired as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
The Packers most recent head coach is taking a gap year between jobs.

National Football League head coaching vacancies have started to get filled up, but Mike McCarthy remains on the market.
So, why? Why in the world would the Jets" upper brass pass on an opportunity to land the franchise's most decorated coach since Bill Parcells told Leon Hess "yes' back in 1997 for Adam Gase? Does Gase have the right demeanor to lead the team?
