Adam Gase is now the head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
But the former Bears offensive coordinator obviously was fond of his one season in Chicago.
Speaking at his introductory press conference Saturday in Florida, Gase had nothing but good things to say about his brief Bears tenure, calling this past season "one of the proudest things I've been a part of."
"It's probably one of the proudest things I've been a part of was last season in Chicago, seeing that group (do what it did with all the) injuries. Nobody gave us a chance in any game," Gase said, "but the way those guys battled, every game came down to the wire, and that's something that's unique, I feel like, when coaches and players can develop those kinds of bonds and you're really doing it for each other and you're not just doing it for yourself."

Gase also spoke very highly of former boss John Fox. The Bears head coach counted Gase as an assistant dating back to their time in Denver, and it's clear he was a big influence on Gase.
"Obviously the last five years being with John Fox, his record speaks for itself," Gase said. "To work for a guy who has over 100 wins in his career, who's been to multiple Super Bowls, who's made a living on walking in to an organization and absolutely turning around the attitude, to be under him, that's a career-changing move as far as learning how to do it the right way."
