Miami Dolphins Adam Gase Top 10 NFL Coach

Adam Gase, Head Coach of the Miami Dolphins, has received some high praise from CBS Sports´ Pete Prisco.

After taking a very weak Miami Dolphins team (talent wise) to the playoffs for the first time since 2008, Adam Gase has made a special list, according to CBS Sports´ Pete Prisco.

Prisco released a list of his Top 10 coaches in the NFL yesterday, and included Adam Gase at 8th overall in his rankings.

Here is the complete list via Prisco:

1. Bill Belichick

2. Mike McCarthy

3. Andy Reid

4. Pete Carroll

5. Mike Tomlin

6. Sean Payton

7. John Harbaugh

8. Adam Gase

9. Bruce Arians

10. Bill O´Brien

While I do not necessarily agree with this list entirely or with the order of the list, I have to agree with Prisco in placing Gase as a Top 10 coach, despite his small sample size to go off of.

What Gase did last season with a depleted team (the Dolphins played a playoff game with virtually all 2nd and 3rd stringers on defense), is nothing short of sorcery. After starting 1-4, it was easy to write off the season as the result of a rookie coach. Then, Gase completely mixed things up, gave a new identity to his offense, and helped lead Ryan Tannehill to his best statistical year yet.

Gase will only get better as he gains experience, and I fully expect him to climb this list in years to come. Prisco´s greatest compliment was comparing Gase to Belichick, who tops this list and will top this list until the day he retires (which can´t come soon enough).

Nevertheless, the Dolphins have found their franchise coach for years to come.
