Before becoming head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Gase's career included work with coaching and NFL greats including Nick Saban, Mike Martz, John Fox, and Peyton Manning.
Gase began his coaching career in Michigan State while as an undergraduate student at Michigan State. He was an assistant to the coaching staff.
When Gase graduated from Michigan State, he followed Saban to LSU for the 2000 season. In Gase's first season with LSU, he worked as a defensive graduate assistant and worked with recruiting. For the next two seasons, Gase worked full-time as a recruiting assistant for the Tigers.
Gase left LSU and the college ranks to become a scouting assistant for the Detroit Lions. He was hired by Steve Mariucci. Gase worked as a scouting assistant from 2003 to 2005. He also added the role of offensive assistant for the 2005 season.
Gase stayed with the Lions under new head coach Rod Marinelli and was promoted to the team's offensive quality control coach for the 2006 season. In 2007, Mike Martz promoted Gase to the team's quarterbacks coach.
San Francisco 49ers
In 2008, Gase joined Mike Martz as the offensive assistant coach for the San Francisco 49ers.
As the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos under John Fox, Gase contributed to Peyton Manning's record-breaking passing season in 2013. After the successful 2013 season, Gase stayed on as the offensive coordinator for the 2014 season.
After the Chicago Bears hired John Fox as their new head coach, Gase came over to the team to be Fox's offensive coordinator once again. In Gase's only season as the Bears offensive coordinator, the team finished 18th in total offense, while also recording 5,514 total net yards and 344.6 per game.
The Miami Dolphins announced that Gase would be the 12th head coach in franchise history on January 9, 2016. The Dolphins started the season with a 1–4 record, but would follow that up with a six-game winning streak. Gase finished his first season as head coach with a 10–6 record leading Miami to the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Miami finished second in the AFC East behind the eventual Super Bowl LI champion New England Patriots. In Gase's first career playoff game as head coach, the Dolphins lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers by score of 30–12 in the Wild Card round.
Gase is married to the daughter of former New Orleans Saints linebackers coach Joe Vitt.
