The Dolphins fired Gase at the end of December after three seasons behind the bench.

Adam Gase looks on during a game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in September.

Prior to his time as head coach in Miami, Gase was an offensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos. He was sacked, as expected, immediately after the 2018 season.

Broncos coaching search down to two
Fangio takes over as the Broncos' head coach after Vance Joseph was sacked after compiling a 11-21 record in two seasons. Though his specialty is defense, talking to him reveals a coach who understands all facets of the game.

The Jets also interviewed former Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Cowboys defensive backs coach Kris Richard, former Lions and Colts coach Jim Caldwell, former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken, former Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury and Baylor coach Matt Rhule.

Legendary quarterback Peyton Manning called Jets CEO Christopher Johnson on Tuesday night to recommend Gase for the team's head-coaching opening. It was not clear if Rhule was offered the job.

According to multiple reports, the Jets have hired former Dolphins coach Adam Gase to be their next head coach. Although New York hasn't been to the playoffs since 2010, the year McCarthy won the Super Bowl in Green Bay, rookie quarterback Sam Darnold provided a potentially bright future.
