Dolphins interim coach Dan Campbell interviews to keep job


In addition to interviewing with the Eagles, Gase also interviewed with the Giants.

Tim Tebow's ticket back into the NFL could be tied to a certain Bears assistant coach that has emerged as the hottest head coaching candidate in the league.

After the Eagles" brass interviewed Chicago Bears' offensive coordinator Adam Gase on Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the Eagles were "impressed' with Gase and that they planned on interviewing him a second time.

The Gase's greatest strength has to be his incredibly diverse background. As a Lions coach, Gase held the titles of offensive assistant (2005), offensive quality control (2006) and quarterbacks coach (2007).

Gase remained with Fox when he was hired by the Chicago Bears past year.

The person provided the update on negotiations to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no agreement has been reached with the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator.

"One of the benefits of (Fox) being 100 years old is he's knows a lot of coaches around the league", Bears general manager Ryan Pace said earlier this week.

One year ago in rapid-fire succession, Doug Marrone went from Bills head coach to voluntarily unemployed to the Jets candidate to Jaguars assistant in a stunning free fall.

"I'd like to get it done soon, but not at the expense of finding the right guy", Mara said Friday in an ESPN radio interview. Nick Saban. He worked under the four-time national championship coach first as an undergraduate at Michigan State and later as a graduate assistant at LSU.

He was offensive coordinator of the Broncos record-setting offense in 2013 and 2014.

McDaniels previously coached the Denver Broncos in 2009 and 2010, and while that didn't work out, he could be ready for another head coaching opportunity at this point.

Only once since 2001 have the Dolphins managed to reach the post-season and they didn't appear in the playoffs for the last seven years. How much of an influence Gase will have will be determined later, but it's likely going to be an all-around front office decision/s.
