At last count there was a line at the Kansas City Airport auto rental counter that included representatives from the Cincinnati Bengals, the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, and Arizona Cardinals all will have met with Bieniemy by the end of today.

Gase coached in Miami for three seasons and led the Dolphins to a 23-25 overall record.

The Jets spoke with Gase on Friday after interviewing Chiefs offensive co-ordinator Eric Bieniemy in Kansas City on Wednesday. He had one playoff appearance in 2016, in which Miami lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-12 in the Wild Card round. Gase is a strong offensive minded coach, and that's exactly what Green Bay is known for with quarterback Aaron Rodgers under center.

Gase's familiarity with the Packers stems from 2015 when he was the Chicago Bears' offensive coordinator.

Overall, Gase has been in the National Football League in some capacity since 2003, serving in roles on the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Broncos, Chicago Bears, and Dolphins.

The Jets have interviewed former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase for their head coaching vacancy. He is 40 years old. They're also scheduled to meet with Tennesee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur on Sunday.

The Journal Sentinel reports that Murphy and Gutekunst spent Friday interviewing both the offensive and defensive play-callers for the New England Patriots - offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and linebackers coach Brian Flores.
