According to sources, Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase is expected to be fired. His final game with the franchise will be on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Owner Stephen Ross is expected to make changes within his team’s front office and on the field. The Dolphins are also expected to fire General Manager Chris Grier and Executive Vice President Mike Tanenbaum.

There has been speculation regarding Gase’s job since before Christmas.

Gase has not lived up to expectations as the team’s head coach. The past two seasons, the Dolphins offense has been near the bottom of nearly every offensive category.

He has also had problems with several players. He made the team trade away running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017.

The team also gave up on wide receiver DeVante Parker under his leadership. Parker — who is still a member of the team — has only one 100-yardage game of the season, as he had six receptions for 134 yards in a 42-23 loss to the Houston in Week 8.

All other games he had five or fewer receptions. In his last game, he had two receptions for 13 yards in a 17-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16.

The team has also been stuck with Ryan Tannehill, who is expected to leave the team in the off-season, as well. Tannehill has struggled in Gase’s system this season after missing last year with a torn ACL injury.

As the Dolphins head coach, he has guided the team to a 23-24 record. The Dolphins are 7-8 this season.

Last season, he guided the team to a 6-10 record. But he had a 10-6 record in 2016, including an AFC Wild Card loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Dolphins began with a 3-0 record. They defeated the Tennessee Titans with a 27-20 record on September 9th. The team also defeated the New York Jets with a 20-12 on September 16th.

Miami also won 28-20 over the Oakland Raiders on September 23rd.

The team then lost two straight games. They were defeated 28-7 by the New England Patriots on September 30th. The team also lost 27-17 to the Cincinnati Bengals on October 7th.

The Dolphins then won 31-28 in overtime to the Chicago Bears on October 14th to improve to 4-2 on the season.

The season went to 4-4 with back-to-back losses. The Dolphins were defeated 32-21 to the Detroit Lions on October 21st. The team also lost 42-23 to the Houston Texans on October 25th.

Miami won again to improve to 5-4 on the season with a 13-6 win over the Jets on November 4th.

The Dolphins fell to 5-6 with back-to-back losses. They lost 31-12 to the Green Bay Packers on November 11th. Following a bye, the team lost 27-24 to the Indianapolis Colts on November 25th.

Gase guided the team to a 6-6 record with a 21-17 win over the Buffalo Bills on December 2nd. The team went to 7-6 with a 34-33 win over the Patriots on December 9th.

The Dolphins have lost their last two games. They lost 41-17 to the Minnesota Vikings on December 16th. The team also lost 17-7 to the Jacksonville Jaguars on December 23rd.
