NFL Insider Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes that Mike Maccagnan is the man for the New York Jets general manager position and expects the search may come to an end this weekend.
With Jets having a 2nd interview with well-supported GM candidate Mike Maccagnan wouldn't be surprised at all if he's hired this weekend— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 9, 2015
After La Canfora's tweet (seen above) this morning, he joined WFAN's Joe and Evan on the radio early Friday afternoon and reiterated these beliefs.
I would expect they hire [Mike] Maccagnan by the weekend as their GM. And then the coach thing could play out, again, based on some results this weekend.
In addition, La Canfora, while not certain, does believe that Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is the likeliest man to wind up with the head coaching job for the Jets. Quinn has been linked to New York often this week.
While Quinn cannot sign a deal until Seattle's season comes to an end, the general manager search appears to be coming to a climax, so Jets fans may be in store for an interesting weekend ahead.
