Former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is reportedly only interested in coaching the New York Jets.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted Tuesday night that McCarthy “doesn’t want to be considered” for any other head coaching opening.

He interviewed with the Jets on Saturday.

McCarthy, 55, coached Green Bay for 13 seasons, compiling a 204-125 record and winning one Super Bowl in 2011.

The Jets fired head coach Todd Bowles after a 4-12 season and a career record of 24-40 over four seasons in New York.

Packers Hall of Fame quaterback Brett Favre believes that McCarthy would be a “great choice” for the Jets. 

“I think what’s important with a coach and a quarterback is understanding their strengths and their weaknesses,” Favre said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “And where they are in their developmental stage and how you call plays and how much you place upon that – Too many times, I think coaches place too much on a young quarterback.

“As you see them grow, you maybe [think], ‘OK, can you handle the protection [adjustment] part of it?’ You kind of do that slowly. I think Mike does a really good job of that.”

Staff writer Andy Vasquez contributed to this report.
