The New York Jets fired GM Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday. In addition, the team also fired VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger.

Head Coach Adam Gase has been named the team’s interim GM.

“This morning, I informed Mike that he was being relieved of his duties as General Manager of the team, effective immediately,” Jets Owner/CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement. “Mike helped to execute the strategic vision of the organization during the last four seasons and especially the last few months. However I came to the decision to make a change after much thought and careful assessment of what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets.

I will start a search for the next General Manager immediately. In the interim, Coach Gase will be the acting General Manager. I would like to thank Mike for his time and efforts during his tenure, and I wish the best for him and his wife Betty.”

The timing of this decision is a bit odd. They could have made this move months ago at the end of the season.

Instead, the Jets waited five months to make this move. They also let Mccagnan and Heimerdinger oversee their NFL Draft in April.

Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Joe Douglas is believed to be the front-runner for the position. He has a close relationship with Gase, who was hired by the team in January as the Jets head coach.
