Adam Gase already considered players’ coach

Adam Gase has won only 10 games, but the Dolphins coach already has won over his players.

“Our relationship is unique, because of him, and he allows that with this team and with the guys on this team,” Kenny Stills said, via James Walker of ESPN. “I feel like that’s a part of this building being special. He really, genuinely cares about us and is looking out for us and wants what’s in our best interest. So it makes it easy to play for a guy like that.”

When Stills and other Dolphins players chose to take a knee during the national anthem last season, Gase offered support. When Stills became a free agent in March, he chose to re-sign with the Dolphins reportedly for less money.

Tight end Julius Thomas, obtained in a trade with the Jaguars, spent four seasons with Gase when both were with the Broncos. Thomas sees Gase as a good coach and a good friend.

“Not only is he a guy that I think is one of the best football minds — he’s really good at teaching and instructing — but he’s also somebody that I consider a friend and somebody that I trust in this game,” Thomas said. “To have that marriage is pretty good.”

    You know who else was a players’ coach?

    Rex Ryan.

    Great thing that he is only 39 years old and hungry ..Miami finally has a bright future with Adam Gase.

    I care about results and this guy some how got 10 wins out of a 8-8 team that was disseminated by injury especially on defense. Not a lot of coaches go to the playoff in their first season and he did it with the back up QB. Evidence like that mean that he must be a good teacher and very good motivator.

    After only one year in the building?

    There’s a short shelf life on player’s coaches.

    Gase better keep his desire to be a cool guy in the locker room in check, or else he won’t have one to cash soon.

    Gase is clearly the reason for the turn around in Miami. Winning games with half the starters out and winning close games is all about coaching. He is literally the best thing to happen since Dan Marino.

    A players coach? As I remember it when someone told Mike Tomlin he was considered a players coach it was a racist statement. I wonder what he thinks about this.

    Yeah, i saw the way the team responded to the “players coach” when they got completely steamrolled in the last Dolphin 2 games.

    I think the guy can coach but isn’t “player coach” the kiss of death cliche? Player coaches seem to get fired a lot.
