Every great football coach is characterized by his positivity, patience, passion, endurance and above all by his ability to win medals. The man named Adam Gase has a wealth of talent when it comes to casting a team. After coaching several professional teams such as the Detroit Lions, the LSU Tigers, the Denver Broncos San Francisco 49ers, and the Chicago Bears, Gase joined the NFL’s Miami Dolphins on January 9, 2016, as their twelfth coach.
The quarterback guru came to the Dolphins with just three years of experience as offensive coordinator after leading several productive offensive games in the history of the National Football League, making him the youngest coach in the National Football League. There are many facts we need to reveal about this great coach. In this article, however, we will look at his early life and football career in the NFL.
Adam Gase’s Biography, Age
Adam is a Michigan-born Ypsilanti who graduated from Marshall High School before moving to Michigan for his college education. He was born on March 29, 1978, and has a beautiful family himself. There is no information about his parents or siblings, but he married into the family of former assistant coach Joe Vitt, whom he recently hired as a consultant in Miami.
Adam Gase’s coaching career began in 1996 when he was still a college student. He served as assistant to the college’s coaching staff. After four years as an Assistant Head Coach, he moved to the state of Louisiana in 2000, where he worked as a graduate assistant and recruitment assistant for the Fighting Tigers at Louisiana State University. During his years of service with the Tigers, the team reached a total of 26-12 after winning the SEC championship in 2001.
NFL Coaching Career
Gas’s career as a National Football League coach began with the Detroit Lions in 2003. He was hired by the Lions’ head coach, Steve Mariucci, as a scouting assistant and offensive assistant for the 2005 season.
After a spectacular 2005 season, Gase was promoted to his team’s offensive quality control coach for the 2006 season. The 2007 season welcomed him with another promotion, and this time he was to work as coach of Lion quarterbacks, which he did before joining the San Francisco 49ers to work with the team’s head coach, Mike Martz, as an assistant offensive coach.
Adam Gase moved to the Denver Broncos after his 2008 season with the 49ers. He was hired by coach John Fox and managed a record-breaking passing season with his new team. After his 2014 season, he left the team for the Chicago Bears football team. With him, the Bears recorded a total of 5,514 net yards, 344.6 per game, and ranked 18th in the overall offensive standings.
Adam Gase became the 12th head coach of the Miami Dolphins in the franchise’s history on January 9, 2016. His first season with the Bears was quite spectacular when he led 10-6 to the team’s 10-6 win, but his first time as head coach was not quite as good, as the Dolphins lost 30-12 to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild card round.
Salary & Net Worth
With a fairly successful track record as a coach, Adam is still one of the most successful coaches in the history of the National Football League, and although his net worth is not yet clear, it is clear that he has earned enough for himself and his family. The NFL coach reportedly earns about $5 million per football season, and in 2016 he bought a 1,556-square-foot mansion in Fort Lauderdale in the Rio Vista district. However, he reportedly used the property as collateral to borrow money from Bank of America, which must be repaid by November 1, 2047.
Family – Wife, Kids
Adam Gase married Jennifer, the daughter of Joe Vitt, the former coach of the linebackers at the New Orleans Saints. Her mother’s name is Linda Vitt, and she has a brother named Joe Vitt, Jr.
Gase met Jennifer in Columbus, Ohio while participating in a 2010 golf tournament, and by that time he was already on his way to the NFL. They met for about a year before they were officially married, but not without Vitt’s permission. Vitt blessed gases and allowed him to marry his daughter the very first day of his home visit.
Adam and his wife are blessed with three children, the youngest was born in February 2012, the second child, Adam Joseph (AJ) Gase, was born on February 8, 2010, while their first child Kenzie was born in 2009.
