While Grier will lean on Coach Flores input, he owns the job totally now. Things are not exactly the same now.

MMQB Alber Breer wrote:
Gase actually did in his first year in Miami. And interestingly enough, when I asked him if there was a partnership he’d seen over his 20 years of coaching that would be a model for what he wants in New York, that’s exactly where he went.

“I know what it looks like, because the last three years, I had it,” he said. “Me and [Dolphins GM Chris Grier], we MMQB Alber Breer. What everybody says that was, and what it was, nobody knows. … He was a great communicator. He does a great job of managing his department, did an unbelievable job personally, for me at the time, over the last three years, of sending me in the direction of guys to evaluate, whether it be in free agency or in the college draft.

“I didn’t waste time in those areas, because [Grier] was dead on. He knew exactly the type of players I like, character I like. He could tell you, ‘You’re gonna like this guy’ or ‘This guy needs to be a guy we target.’ And he understood our offense, defense and special teams. … He gets it and he knows how to take that conversation, point out guys and be like, ‘This is what we’re looking for.’”

In a nutshell, Gase and Grier were aligned philosophically, which allowed Gase to focus on coaching the team. So the hunt is on for not only that kind of guy, but that kind of relationship. And while I think Douglas remains the favorite, it’s worth noting that, per sources, requests haven’t yet gone in for San Francisco’s Adam Peters or Detroit’s Lance Newmark, both of whom are close to Gase.

You may be surprised that Gase looks back and sees a lot of good in what he had in Miami.
