The Dolphins are indeed making progress with Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase. And since no one has promoted that it is a “95-percent” certainty, there’s still a good chance it will get done.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Gase and the Dolphins are indeed “making progress” toward a deal, but to date no deal is done. This meshes with the report from Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald that “all signs point” to Gase getting the job.
The clarity of Gase’s candidacy apparently has had a ripple effect on others. Salguero now reports that Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia’s interview has been canceled. While the details of the decision aren’t known, it’s possible that Patricia’s camp caught wind of the Gase chatter, sought assurances that the team wasn’t closing in on hiring Gase, didn’t get them, and said, “Thanks but no thanks.”
Whether Gase ends up getting the job remains to be seen. As long as no one declares that it’s a “95 percent” probability of a hire, there’s still a good chance he will.
