The sports world in New York is a shit show.
Despite having two years left on his contract, the New York Jets have fired general manager Mike Maccagnan. The team has also canned it’s Vice President of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger.
Jets have fired GM Mike Maccagnan and VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger, league sources told @jeffdarlington and me. Maccagnan had two years left on his contract.
Jets are in position to have strong season thanks to Maccagnan and Heimerdinger.

New head coach Adam Gase will take over as interim GM.
The move comes as a shock considering GM firings/hirings typically take place before a draft in order to usher in the players a new regime has picked instead of from a previous one. The team also let Maccagnan hand-pick his new head coach in Adam Gase, who now has his job.
