Playing for Bill Belichick and the Patriots isn’t for everyone. And apparently it’s a far cry from playing in Miami, according to new Dolphins wideout Danny Amendola.
Speaking on the “Comeback SZN” podcast, Amendola, who won two Super Bowls with New England, said Miami head coach Adam Gase is “one of the guys,” while Belichick reminds him of someone you hope not to encounter on a regular basis.
“Coach Gase is one of the guys, one of the boys, and you want to fight hard for your boys. Back in New England, it’s almost like you’ve got a principal, the principal’s office and s— like that; in a good way and a bad way, too,” Amendola said. “It’s refreshing to have that kind of relationship with a coach (Gase), something I haven’t had in a long time. I facetimed coach Gase yesterday just to bulls– with him, just to talk to him. I was talking to his kids. I have a relationship with him that’s real unique, something I haven’t had in a while.”
Amendola, who also called Belichick “the greatest coach of all time,” signed a two-year deal with Miami this offseason because he said he wanted a different environment. He said Gase is someone he “can relate to.”
Amendola, still a member of the AFC East, will have two chances this season to explain his remarks to Belichick.
