Ex-Dolphins coach Gase to interview with Cardinals

Share

He is one of at least four coaches who have reportedly been requested for an interview or will be interviewed for the Cardinals' job, which opened Monday following the fire of first-year head coach Steve Wilks.

In his tenure with the Dolphins, Gase received criticism for not properly using his personnel.

Who knows? He wouldn't be the worst option out there.

Taylor could certainly coach up the Dolphins' quarterback, whether it's Ryan Tannehill or a new face, and turn the offense into a powerhouse, something Gase was never able to do. "We need to add to our core of young players and build something special over the long-term".

In addition, he lost support in the locker room over the second half of the season. Not all of Miami's struggles have been squarely on the shoulders of Gase, but to absolve him of completely would be a mistake. Gase could be the guy for Denver if they're looking for a guy with experience. It's believed Miami owner Stephen Ross is willing to stay the path with Gase but is certainly going to evaluate the situation in the coming hours and days.

The shutdown is idling hundreds of thousands of federal workers and beginning to pinch citizens who count on some public services. Mulvaney added of the shutdown: "We do expect this to go on for a while". "We're going to behave like adults and do our job".

Gase said prior to Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills that he didn't "need to lobby for my job" and that if Ross "says there's an issue, I'll know".

Last week Gase said his biggest regret about 2018 was a slew of injuries. In his first season with the Dolphins, he led the Dolphins to the playoffs for the first time since 2008 with a record of 10-6.

Gase, 40, should receive opportunities this offseason to be an offensive coordinator and maybe even a head coach.

With his firing, and Mike Tannenbaum's "reassignment", Miami is setting itself up to make a early splash by interviewing and hiring a new head coach to help build an identity for this team, something that has been missing for some time.

Fourth-quarter collapses at Indianapolis and Cincinnati, where question marks about playcalling were apparent, also played a significant role in the Dolphins missing the playoffs. Tannehill missed five games. Let's take a look at three head coaching candidates that could take the Miami Dolphins back into contention in the AFC.
