The Dolphins fired Gase at the end of December after three seasons behind the bench.
Gase followed coach John Fox to Chicago in 2015 to be the Bears' offensive co-ordinator. He's the Jets' first hire with previous National Football League head coaching experience since Bill Parcells' three-year tenure from 1997-99.More news: Broncos Hire Vic Fangio As New Head Coach
Gase replaces Todd Bowles, who was sacked after he went 24-40 in four seasons.
Heading into the 2019 offseason, there were at least eight teams looking for a new coach, and that number could jump even higher if we see any more surprise moves.More news: Higuain told to decide future and show AC Milan responsibility
McCarthy, who won a Super Bowl in Green Bay, reportedly wanted the job, but the Jets elected to go in a different direction. NY was linked to Kliff Kingsbury, but he took the Arizona Cardinals job. However, they do have rookie quarterback Sam Darnold, who showed flashes of his promise to become the team's potential franchise quarterback in his first season. The team interviewed Kilff Kingsbury on Monday before he signed on with the Cardinals, and also has interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, former Dolphins coach Adam Gase, Cowboys secondary coach and defensive passing game coordinator Kris Richard, former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken and Baylor coach Matt Rhule.
