The New York Jets currently have seven top candidates to fill their head coaching vacancy, but it appears as though Mike McCarthy could be the favorite to land the job.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, Jets CEO Christopher Johnson is "enamored" with the former Green Bay Packers coach.
The team could be excited about McCarthy's offensive background to help get the most out of quarterback Sam Darnold.
The 55-year-old coach spent 13 years with the Packers, producing a 125-77-2 record with eight 10-plus-win seasons. He led the squad to a Super Bowl title in 2010 and had 10 playoff wins during his stretch with the team.
