Vitt who is Gase’s father-in-law will be added to the coaching staff to help the defense improve. Miami ranked 29th in total yards allowed last season, so any help will be appreciated.
Vitt spent 11 seasons with the New Orleans Saints, where he was the linebackers coach and ended up as the assistant coach to Sean Payton. He then took over for 10 games as the interim head coach for the Saints during the famous “Bountygate” suspension of their then head coach Sean Payton.
Vitt was available this offseason when the New Orleans Saints decided to let him go after the Saints went 7-9 for the season.
