Considering he mostly worked with Ryan Tannehill (a middle-of-the-road starter) who he took to the playoffs, Jay Cutler (who came out of retirement) and Brock Osweiler (who filled in for Tannehill some this year), you could argue Gase did a pretty good job with the Dolphins offense.
National Football League head coaching vacancies have started to get filled up, but Mike McCarthy remains on the market.
The Miami Herald has reported Flores is "near if not at the top of the Dolphins' list".
Instead of picking McCarthy, the Jets went with Gase, who lasted only three years as the Dolphins coach.
McCarthy was sacked as the Packers' head coach mid-way through the 2018 season.
His résumé includes serving as an offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears.
Dowell Loggains is expected to be named as an offensive assistant with the Jets, sources told ESPN's Jeff Darlington.
But according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, McCarthy doesn't want to be considered for any other head coaching vacancy other than the Jets'. They likely are interested in him with the hope he could groom quarterback Sam Darnold the same way he did with Aaron Rodgers.
We'll keep you posted as Gase begins to assemble his staff in the coming days. And if this report is anything to go by, it appears McCarthy views the Jets as that ideal fit for his services.
