Dolphins fire Gase after 7-9 season; Tannenbaum demoted
MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Dolphins' coaching carousel is spinning again.
Adam Gase was fired Monday as part of the latest organizational shake-up after the Dolphins finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years. Owner Stephen Ross ordered a roster overhaul and acknowledged it may take several seasons to build a winner.
MIAMI (AP) — Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is 77 and wants to win now.
Executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum and general manager Chris Grier, mindful that last season's 6-10 record didn't help their job security, also want to win now.
Coach Adam Gase, however, wants to draft a quarterback to groom as an eventual successor to Ryan Tannehill.
Redskins President Bruce Allen is the least-trusted executive in the NFL, according to a USA Today poll.
The newspaper polled 25 agents. An unnamed agent told the paper, "you never know if he's shooting straight with you."
The Redskins were also named as the third-worst prepared team during contract negotiations, according to the poll.
Dolphins owner says Gase, top personnel execs will be back
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins' disappointing season had owner Stephen Ross cursing Sunday.
"I hate losing," said Ross, who included an expletive in the sentence and quickly apologized for his language. Despite his frustration, he said coach Adam Gase and the team's top two personnel executives will be retained.
Despite playoff breakthrough, Dolphins have much work to do
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Even as the Miami Dolphins' offseason begins, they're still chasing the New England Patriots.
The Dolphins made the playoffs for the first time in eight years but failed to gain much ground on their AFC East nemesis. While the Patriots (14-2) won their eighth consecutive division title and are still playing, Miami (10-7) was one-and-done in the postseason, which left the team's leadership reflecting Wednesday on progress made and yet to be made.
