Rex Ryan reportedly interested in Dolphins job if Adam Gase fired

Rex Ryan reportedly interested in Dolphins job if Adam Gase fired

Prior to joining Miami, Gase had previously served as an offensive coordinator with the Broncos (2013-14) and Bears (2015) on John Fox's coaching staffs.

Arizona Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill revealed on Monday the team had reached out to a couple of coaches now out of football, which would include any of the seven other head coaches fired in the NFL during or after the season.

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

Ross demoted executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum.

Stuck on a treadmill of mediocrity, the Dolphins have finished with six to eight wins in nine of the past 10 seasons, and haven't won a playoff game since 2000.

Seems like they're going for something similar to last year's Stadium Series event at the Army-Navy Stadium in Annapolis. But one specific tradition that has become a staple in the franchise is the traditional New Year's Eve game.

There's already speculation Gase will be coaching another team in 2019, and his supporters argued he overachieved given the quality of the Dolphins' roster. Despite Haslam's interest in Gase, no one knows how Dorsey feels about the former Dolphins coach. Tannehill missed five games. Miami ranked 29th in defense, allowing a franchise-record 6,257 yards.

Miami has had a losing record in each of the past two seasons, finishing 6-10 in 2017 and 7-9 in 2018. He was hopeful Ross would understand the impact injuries had on the season, citing the 13 players who ended the year on injured reserve - many being key offensive contributors.

Now with the team looking to the future and the hope to get back into playoff contention, the Dolphins will certainly need to make a splash when it comes to the head coaching spot.

Gase, 40, was sacked Monday by the Dolphins after posting a 23-25 record in three seasons. He has been known to have created rifts in relationships with multiple players, including current Cleveland Brown wide receiver Jarvis Landry.
