NY conducted interviews with newly-hired Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury, former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, and former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell for the position. He finished his time in Green Bay with a 125-77-2 record and led it to a Super Bowl win in 2011. Gase worked with Manning from 2012 through 2014-first as the Broncos' quarterbacks coach, and then as offensive coordinator.
Gase followed coach John Fox to Chicago in 2015 to be the Bears' offensive coordinator.
Rhule is a native New Yorker, who spent one season as an assistant offensive line coach with the New York Giants in 2012.
The recently fired Dolphins head coach has a new job.
McCarthy went 135-85-2 in 12-plus years with the Packers but was sacked with four games left in the 2018 season. With Adam Gase being named as the successor to Todd Bowles in that position on Wednesday, McCarthy is set to sit out the upcoming year before planning to jump back in next season.
Gase will work closely with general manager Mike Maccagnan, who was retained by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, to put together a competitive roster around Darnold.
