But there was one awkward moment when Gase was asked about the status of his predecessor: former Miami interim head coach Dan Campbell. Gase turned his head towards owner Stephen Ross to answer the question, as though he wanted nothing to do with it at that moment. Would keeping Campbell around be an asset or a link to the past that Gase is trying to move away from? This is an important question Gase must determine as he begins to implement his program. http://espn.go.com/blog/miami-dolph...mpbells-future-with-dolphins-remains-in-limbo ----- Dan is in a tight spot- in some ways his bid for the permanent head coaching job was an all or nothing proposition. My guess is that Gase will want to start fresh, not risk a fractured locker room or have to worry about the players being loyal to Campbell, not Gase. If Campbell is retained he'd have a job, but would remain in the scene of his ultimate disappointment. But if he's fired, he's not an offensive play calling genius who will find a job as an offensive coordinator quickly or at all for that matter, my best guess at least. He'll become a coaching nomad looking for another assistant job coaching Tight Ends. Unless some other team makes him an assistant offensive coach, again unlikely. In some ways it's a no win situation, I feel bad for the guy. He flew too close to the sun, got burned, and now is free falling back to earth. No wonder the Dolphins said they'd give him a couple of days before they contact him again, he must be utterly devastated right now.
