Dolphins announce interview with Adam Gase

The Dolphins continued their coaching search on Thursday by interviewing Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

Gase has been a popular target this week and has either interviewed with or been linked with the Dolphins, Eagles, Giants and Browns. With that many lines in the water and a record of success in both Denver and Chicago, Gase is seen as a likely candidate to wind up with a head coaching job in the near future.

There was a report that Gase had lined up a second interview with the Eagles, although that’s been followed by another saying that nothing’s been scheduled at this point.

The Dolphins have been as busy as Gase. His interview is the fifth they’ve done this week with Mike Shanahan, Mike Smith, Teryl Austin and Anthony Lynn also getting their chance to make a case to be the next man to lead the team. Doug Marrone, Hue Jackson and interim coach Dan Campbell are also slated to interview.

  1. Funny it was reported on CBS that they were keeping him in Miami for a second interview and offering him the job.

  2. Great! Let’s hire another coordinator with no head coaching experience. It has worked out great the last three times. This guy’s claim to fame is that he helped groom Peyton Manning and led the Broncos offense. Sounds a lot like Philbin, who supposedly helped groom Aaron Rogers. Newsflash: those two run their offenses on their own and don’t need any help. This year Gase guided the prolific Bears offense that performed marginally better than the Dolphins. Ross and Tannenbaum are clueless. If this guy is hired I might be done with the Dolphins. Hire a real coach that has won before. There are plenty available.

  3. Sunnydee, difference is he guided cutler to a career year, and did so with the top FOUR wideouts, and always the 1 or 2 TE on the shelf. I’d be thrilled to have him back in Chicago.

  4. I am a long time Fin Fan and there is nothing the Dolphins could do that would make me want to slit my throat. My outlook on life is not dictated by anything my favorite football team does or doesn’t do.

  5. I’m a Denver Broncos fan and follow the team pretty closely. I say this because I watched his rise on the Broncos staff. Gase is a great O coordinator and is going to be a very good head coach. Here’s the pedigree.

    College learned under Nick Saban at Mich St.
    Coaching Asst. (Intern type role) with Mike Martz at the Lions
    Came to the Broncos as WR’s coach with Josh McDaniels. (worked together at M. St.)
    QB coach for Orton (who was decent as a Bronco)
    QB coach for freaking Tebow. *Just going to leave that there without comment*
    QB coach then O coord for Peyton during the best statistical season for a QB in the history of the game.
    O coord. for Cutler in his best season.

    Dude knows the game and is a top 3 coordinator. Should of gotten the SF job, but York and crew jobbed him because he wouldn’t let them dictate his staff.

    Dolphin fans should hope this guy gets the gig and works with Tannehill. Just guessing, but Tannehill’s contract might not look as bad. Just sayin

  6. I can’t wait for the top 4 people on this blog to leave the Dolphins and don’t come back. The Dolphins will do what they will do in this search for a new crew to lead the team, Dolphin supporters will stay with the team thru thick and thin. Bill

  7. Even assuming Gase is responsible for Cutler’s success this year, overall the Bears offense was not too impressive. Even if they were, it would be a one year sample size. Maybe he can coach a QB, but that doesn’t make him a good head coach. Whether he will be a good head coach at this point is completely unknown. The Dolphins can’t afford to gamble again on someone with no head coaching experience. After Cam
    Cameron, Sparano (who was the best of the bunch) and Philbin, they need to hire someone with experience. Although by no means perfect candidates, I would like to see Mike Smith (playoffs 4 of 7 years), Coughlin (while retaining Campbell as coach in waiting), Billick, or Hue Jackson as the next head coach. If your team loses Gase, I think they’ll still be in good shape. Fox is a good coach.

  8. This guy might be a great coach but I can’t figure out why teams are lining up for him. Peyton Manning was pretty much the offensive coordinator in Denver. By all accounts it was Peyton’s offense and what has Cutler done that is so great? He has played within the offense a bit more and thrown less pics. Are the Bears in the playoffs? I don’t get it.
