The Miami Dolphins appear to be on the verge of naming Adam Gas as their next head coach.

The Miami Dolphins' search for a new head coach may be ready to come to an end. After news broke that the team will bring Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase back on Saturday for a second interview, Miami Herald reporter Adam Beasley reports that there is momentum building behind Miami and Gase, while the Palm Beach Post's Andrew Abramson adds that an offer could be coming soon for Gase, and Sports Illustrated contributor Simon Clancy reported that it appears to be more than just a second interview Miami intends when Gase comes back.

Clancy adds that the team will keep interim head coach Dan Campbell as an assistant coach and that they have cancelled their planned interview with Hue Jackson:

Clancy asked NFL Network's Mike Mayock about whether Gase would be a good hire for Miami. He replied:

The move to hire Gase, if they do, means Miami, who has been very methodical in their coaching search thus far, has solidified their decision that the Bears' offensive coordinator is the right man to turn around the team. He is the hot name in the coaching circles this year, so Miami will land the top candidate this offseason if they do make this hire.

Obviously, more will be known tomorrow, but the fact that Gase is coming back for a second interview and that the team has cancelled their interview with Jackson, seems to indicate things are getting close to concluding in Miami's head coaching search of 2016.
