He'll replace Todd Bowles, who was sacked hours after the season concluded. Gase was sacked following three seasons in South Florida.
There are only three head coaching vacancies remaining in the National Football League, with one of them being the New York Jets.
This is not a full-blown retread though (I say that mostly tongue in cheek) - Gase is replacing Todd Bowles, who spent four years with the Jets, the latter three which netted just 14 total wins. Miami fired him following the end of the 2018 regular season.
Along with the names mentioned above, the Dolphins requested interviews with Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak, but they were unsuccessful in meeting with either of them. Loggains previously worked under Gase in the same capacity with the Dolphins.
Miami faces the Jets twice a year, as both are in the AFC East.
More than anything else, the Jets were looking for their next coach to be able to develop Sam Darnold into their franchise quarterback.
Not counting Bill Belichick's one day stint in 2000, Gase is the first head coach hired by the Jets with past head coaching experience since Bill Parcells (1997). However, Rhule reportedly pulled out of contention for the job after being told he wouldn't be given control to hire his own assistants, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
