Adam Gase (born March 29, 1978) is an American football coach who, as of 2019, is the head coach of the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL) who most recently was the head coach for the NFL's Miami Dolphins. Gase has also coached for the LSU Tigers, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, and Chicago Bears.

Coaching careerEdit

Before becoming head coach of the New York Jets, Gase was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2016 to 2018. Gase has worked with coaches Mike Martz and John Fox, and quarterback Peyton Manning.

Michigan StateEdit

Gase began his coaching career in Michigan State while as an undergraduate student at Michigan State. He was an assistant to the coaching staff.[1]


When Gase graduated from Michigan State, he followed Saban to LSU for the 2000 season. In Gase's first season with LSU, he worked as a defensive graduate assistant and worked with recruiting. For the next two seasons, Gase worked full-time as a recruiting assistant for the Tigers.[2]

Miami DolphinsEdit

The Miami Dolphins announced that Gase would be the 12th head coach in franchise history on January 9, 2016.[3] The Dolphins started the season with a 1–4 record, but would follow that up with a six-game winning streak. Gase finished his first season as head coach with a 10–6 record leading Miami to the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Miami finished second in the AFC East behind the eventual Super Bowl LI champion New England Patriots. In Gase's first career playoff game as head coach, the Dolphins lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 30–12 in the Wild Card round.

On December 31, 2018, a day after a 42-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills to close out the 2018 season, the Dolphins fired Gase as part of their organizational changes. He finished with a 23–25 regular season record as Miami's head coach.[4]
