Dolphins hire Adam Gase: What now for the Eagles?

New, comments
Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Gase is officially the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins.

This obviously means that the Eagles are out of the running for Gase. The Bears offensive coordinator is one of four head coaching candidates the Eagles have interviewed so far. The others include interim head coach Pat Shurmur, running back coach Duce Staley, and Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.

The Eagles are still reportedly set to meet with several candidates, including Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, and former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin. Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin and Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter are also reportedly in the mix.

Losing out on Gase isn't the end of the world for the Eagles. He seems like an intriguing candidate for sure, but not necessarily a slam dunk hire.

It's possible the Eagles didn't really want Gase too badly anyway. It's also possible they did and the Birds lost out to Miami, which is pretty concerning considering the Dolphins aren't considered to be the most stable franchise. If that's the case, losing out on Gase could be an indictment of the state of the Eagles right now.

In any case, Philadelphia's search continues.
