Manning, Elway offer praise for Adam Gase as he takes Dolphins job

Posted Jan 9, 2016

Gase will be the third recent Broncos assistant among the NFL's head-coaching ranks.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Adam Gase became the third recent Broncos assistant coach to join the current NFL head-coaching ranks when he agreed Saturday to take the reins of the Miami Dolphins.

Gase worked six seasons on the Broncos' staff as wide receivers coach, quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator from 2009-14, helping oversee multiple transitions between offensive schemes and quarterbacks.

In his first season as coordinator, Peyton Manning amassed the best statistical season for any quarterback in league history, setting league records for touchdown passes and yardage as the Broncos went 13-3 and won their seventh AFC championship.

Gase spent the 2015 season working with the Chicago Bears under John Fox, the Broncos' head coach from 2011-14.

"Adam is a bright, young, energetic football coach who has worked very hard for this opportunity," Executive Vice President/General Manager John Elway said. "I anticipate that Adam will be very successful as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins."

Manning praised Gase for his work ethic and intelligence.

"I'm very happy for Adam," Manning said. "Adam had a great impact on me during our three years together here in Denver as my quarterbacks coach and then as offensive coordinator.

"He's an extremely hard worker -- a grinder. He's extremely bright on all things football, an excellent communicator and always eager to learn more. He asks a lot of questions and writes everything down. I've always been impressed with his work ethic and his eagerness to learn more.

"He'll be an excellent head coach, without a doubt. He is ready for this, for sure."
