Le'Veon Bell's deal with Jets, Adam Gase keeps getting worse

Le'Veon Bell's deal with Jets, Adam Gase keeps getting worse On Wednesday, the Jets fired the GM who signed Le'Veon Bell to what most called a disappointing deal for the running back. Now it feels like that contract might be just the beginning of the disappointment for Bell in New York.

The New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday and named first-year head coach Adam Gase his interim replacement.

"Mike helped to execute the strategic vision of the organization during the last four seasons and especially the last few months," Jets chairman Christopher Johnson said in a statement. "However, I came to the decision to make a change after much thought and a careful assessment of what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets."

Vice president of player personnel Brian Heimerdinger was also relieved of his duties, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington.

Report: Jets considering TV analyst Daniel Jeremiah for front-office job

Report: Jets considering TV analyst Daniel Jeremiah for front-office job The New York Jets are seriously considering NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah for a prominent role in their front office, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jeremiah previously worked as a college scout for the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, and Philadelphia Eagles. He joined NFL Media in 2012, specializing in draft coverage. Jeremiah replaced Mike Mayock, who became general manager of the Oakland Raiders, as NFL Network's top draft analyst this year. The Jets seem to be in the midst of a front-office overhaul.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said Friday night that he has "a very good working relationship" with new coach Adam Gase . "Actually, I think Adam and I have worked very well together," said Maccagnan , who played a key role in hiring Gase in January.

Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan gives his thoughts on new head coach Adam Gase and why the team feels good about choosing him for the job.

The move is a stunner given its timing, as Maccagnan led New York into the NFL draft less than three weeks ago. He and the Jets were active in free agency before that, handing out long-term deals to running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker C.J. Mosley.

Gase, who was hired in January on the heels of a failed three-year stint as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, will serve as the franchise's leading voice until a new general manager is brought in. Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas could emerge as a candidate, Schefter suggested.

Rumors of a rift between Maccagnan and Gase floated across New York for weeks, but both were adamant publicly that they shared a healthy working relationship.

Maccagnan made plenty of moves over his four-plus years at the helm, but he'll be most remembered for engineering the trade that helped Gang Green land quarterback Sam Darnold with the third overall pick in the 2018 draft.

Second fire breaks out at Toronto high school, nearby homes being evacuated.
TORONTO — A Toronto high school has partially collapsed and neighbouring residents have had to leave their homes after a second fire in as many days broke out at the building, the city's fire chief said Tuesday. Large plumes of low-hanging smoke were billowing out of the York Memorial Collegiate Institute, which led to the decision to evacuate surrounding homes, Chief Matthew Pegg said. Firefighters said they were called out to the high school  at 3:24 a.m. Tuesday, about 13 hours after they were called to the first blaze at the building. No injuries have been reported, they said.
