I know, for example, the folks pushing the idea of going with the long view never intended for it to help cost coach Adam Gase his job. That wasn’t on their mind.
Those people, in fact, thought Gase part of the team’s future.
They thought Gase mostly capable as a coach, a good leader, and a good man off the field.
Yet the Dolphins could not keep Gase and go in this new direction because Gase was fully invested in trying to win now. And he had contractual control of the 53-man roster so he could effectively stay on the win-now course if he continued in Miami.
So he had to be fired.
n two years, or around January of 2021, you’re not going to like the next head coach, either.

One answer: Because it’s hard for a minority head coach to be hired, and this is a chance.
Second answer: Because even the worst head coaching job in the NFL is an opportunity too good to pass up.
