The New York Jets and and chairman/CEO Christopher Johnson have officially announced that the team has relieved the duties of General Manager Mike Maccagnan and VP of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger on Wednesday.

The announcement comes following a rumored rift between new head coach Adam Gase and Maccagnan. The two were reportedly butting heads behind the scenes for reasons not specifically known.

The firing comes at an interesting time for the franchise. Maccagnan and Gase were able to move past the disagreements in the front office to come away with a successful offseason and draft. This included securing quite a few marquee players in Le’Veon Bell, CJ Mosley, and Quinnen Williams.

Gase will reportedly man the duties of general manager as the team begins an immediate search for Maccagnan’s replacement. This also becomes a point of interest as Gase has openly denied wanting any part of personnel control, something he attempted to avoid during his time in Miami.

The Jets just gave him all of it.
