We have our first new head coach of the 2016 season: the Miami Dolphins have hired Adam Gase as their head coach on a five-year deal. Gase, who had been one of the most sought-after head coaching candidates, will be officially introduced as head coach later today: https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/685863430633484288 Gase had spent the 2015 season as offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears. He had previously been quarterbacks coach for the Denver Broncos, where he coached Tim Tebow during his lone season as their starter and then worked with Peyton Manning, before being promoted to OC in Denver following Mike McCoy’s departure to coach San Diego. No doubt his work with quarterbacks will have been a large reason for the team’s desire to hire Gase, as the biggest issue facing the Dolphins is what to do with QB Ryan Tannehill. If Gase develop Tannehill, he could have the Dolphins in position to succeed sooner rather than later. Gase will be one of the youngest head coaches in the NFL at the age of just 37, and this will be his first head coaching position at any level. Including interims, Gase will be the tenth Miami Dolphins head coach since Don Shula retired in 1995.
