Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is giddy over the first four-game winning streak under his ownership and credits first-year coach Adam Gase, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
“I have the right guy now,” Ross said of first-year coach Adam Gase. “I have the guy I wanted.”
Ross inherited Tony Sparano as his first coach. And the two didn’t like each other. So when Sparano’s star, lit by that AFC East championship he won his first season, grew dim amid the losing seasons that followed, his fate was sealed.
Ross hired Joe Philbin and stuck with him from 2012 until the bye week last season. And Ross doesn’t talk much about that period, but anyone with any sense recognizes it didn’t work either on or off the field.
Ross believes the hiring of Gase is working.
“Adam has already changed the culture of the Miami Dolphins,” the owner declared.
“The organization is working well together now,” Ross added. “That’s the first time that’s happened.”
