Dolphins reportedly want to interview Brian Flores with Adam Gase fired

Gase dealt with quarterback issues throughout his tenure in Miami.

"I am excited about having Chris lead our football operations going forward", owner Stephen Ross said in a statement.

And so the final day of the season has arrived, and the time has come for coaches to be fired or not fired, and as everyone looks for a surprise, some are suggesting that a Gase firing could be that surprise.

"I want to build a championship organisation and I've fallen short of that so far".

"I want to thank Adam for his hard work and dedication to the Miami Dolphins", Ross said in a statement.

Who knows? He wouldn't be the worst option out there. And the poor finish this season raised questions about whether Gase had lost the support of some players. Manning was a proponent of Gase's offense, which helped Gase rise to the top of list of candidates to be a head coach.

The Dolphins gig was Gase's first as a head coach.

Landry clearly holds disdain for Gase, despite being one of the NFL's most prolific pass-catchers while playing for the MI native.

Earlier this week, when discussing the future of the Cleveland coaching staff, I suggested that the best possible outcome for the Browns would be Nick Saban as head coach and Gase, a former Saban protege, as offensive coordinator.

Gase is known as an offensive mind and was the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears before taking the Dolphins job in 2016. Rizzi has been with the Dolphins since 2010, surviving four coaching changes.

The approach makes sense given the Dolphins are likely starting over at quarterback. Since Dave Wannstedt took over in 2000, however, the team has gone through nine head coaches, including interim coaches, and will be searching for a 10th.

Gase went 7-1 this season in one-score games, and 20-6 in three seasons. Tannehill missed five games.
