Gase, who was sacked by the Dolphins after his third season in Miami netted just seven wins, was considered one of the top coaching candidates despite posting back-to-back losing seasons with the Fins. Gase was just 23-25 but won five of six games against the Jets.
However, the Jets weren't discouraged by the Dolphins' stagnant offenses under Gase, and now he'll get another chance to prove that earlier hype was warranted.More news: Camp Fire: Trump says he's told FEMA to halt relief money
Gase, 40, was considered the next great offensive mind in the league when the Dolphins hired him in 2016. He led Miami to a playoff appearance in his first year, however posted losing records in each of his final two campaigns, including a 7-9 mark in 2018.
According to Breer, Gase is expected to hire Dowell Loggains as offensive coordinator.
Former Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is a strong possibility for Gase's defensive coordinator, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.More news: With Vic Fangio, Broncos go with experience and toughness
