Adam Gase denies rift with Jets GM Mike Maccagnan

Adam Gase denies rift with Jets GM Mike Maccagnan Adam Gase met with the media on Friday and vehemently denied reports of a rift between him and general manager Mike Maccagnan. Dating back to the NFL draft, reports surfaced that Gase and Maccagnan had not been seeing eye to eye since free agency. At the time of the original report, Maccagnan denied any rift between the two. On Friday, Gase met with the media at the conclusion of New York's rookie minicamp and bluntly did the same. "It kind of pisses me off a little bit," Gase said. "We have discussions on everything. That's our job. We have to work through so much stuff because that's what we gotta do.

Adam Gase's victory in the Jets' power struggle will allow him to "effectively hand pick" the team's next general manager, according to the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta.

Gase became the Jets' interim general manager in addition to head coach on Wednesday after New York fired GM Mike Maccagnan. The Jets went 24–20 in four years under Maccagnan, reaching the postseason just once.

Maccagnan and Gase battled throughout the offseason after Gase was hired in January. Gase was reportedly frustrated with New York's decision to sign running back Le'Veon Bell, and "alienate[d]" during the draft process, per Mehta.
