Jets interview former Packers coach Mike McCarthy
The New York Jets have interviewed former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy for their head coach opening.
McCarthy completed an interview with the Jets on Saturday, the team announced, as they search for a replacement for Todd Bowles.
Bowles was fired after the Jets finished last in the AFC East for the third straight season.
McCarthy was 125-76-2 in Green Bay and won Super Bowl XLV, but was let go during the season after the Packers fell to 4-7-1 with a loss at home to the lowly Arizona Cardinals on December 2.
The Jets are casting a wide net to replace Bowles, who was 24-40 in four seasons in charge. They already have interviewed former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase and Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
ESPN reported on Saturday that the Jets are in Texas this weekend to interview Dallas Cowboys defensive backs coach Kris Richard and are also interested in Baylor coach Matt Rhule.
