The Miami Dolphins are not yet complete with all of their first interviews, but the team has already started setting up second meetings with potential hires to fill the team's vacant head coaching position. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Dolphins will meet with Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase for a second interview on Saturday.

Gase completed his first interview with the team on Thursday. The Dolphins interviewed interim head coach Dan Campbell and Jacksonville Jaguars assistant head coach Doug Marrone on Friday, and has an interview scheduled with Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson scheduled for Sunday.

There has been speculation that the Dolphins are highly interested in Gase, and would like to lock him up before he is able to interview with any other teams. Rumors had circulated that the Philadelphia Eagles could be looking to conduct a second interview with Gase as well, but nothing has been scheduled as of yet.

Gase served as the Bears offensive coordinator this season, moving with former Denver Broncos head coach John Fox to Chicago in the 2015 offseason. Gase was Fox's offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014 with the Broncos, serving for the two seasons prior to that as the team's quarterbacks coach and from 2009 through 2010 as the team's wide receivers coach.
