Dolphins schedule Adam Gase for Thursday
By Brian Miller
Hot head coaching candidate Adam Gase will be making his rounds and his Miami Dolphins stop will be on Thursday. Gase is reportedly going to interview with two other teams before then.

The Dolphins, as rumor has it, have Gase atop their coaching wish list but Miami will have to wait and see what happens after Gase interviews with the Browns and Eagles first. It’s possible that if Miami falls in love with Gase on Thursday they could potentially offer him the job immediately.
Gase is the top first time coaching prospect this year. He has had success with a variety of quarterbacks including Tim Tebow while in Denver. Currently serving as the offensive coordinator in Chicago, Gase has been a coaching candidate for a couple of years now. It was reported that he turned down an interview with the Browns a year ago for their head coaching job.
Over his career, Gase has coached quarterbacks and wide-receivers and has spent his time recently as an OC since 2013. He followed John Fox to Chicago from Denver. Gase has built an impressive resume specifically with his work with top quarterbacks. Which is also a downfall. He has had Peyton Manning and Jay Cutler to work with but it was the work he did with Tebow that stood out early in his career in Denver.
Gase has a lot of contacts within the NFL and a lot of support which would allow him to bring in top assistants. While this will be his first head coaching job on any level, many in league circles believe that he can handle the job without any problems.
For the Dolphins it would be a solid hire despite the fact that he is a novice head coach. Gase has tremendous respect from his players and likes to develop talent. Another focal point for the Dolphins this off-season. In Miami he would have some talent and a high draft pick (8th) in round one. If the Dolphins want him they may need to convince him on Thursday because he will have more than just Miami as a stop.
Gase will be the third coach to be interviewed by the Dolphins barring new additions which will likely occur.
