Report: Broncos OC Adam Gase likely to turn down Browns, if offered job
Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase will be occupied with the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
After that, it’s been widely reported that he’ll get an interview for the Browns’ head coaching job. However, Gase, 35, is leaning toward staying with the Broncos even if he’s offered the job, a source told Mark Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
Writes Cabot: “Gase, who’s expected to interview with the Browns after he’s eliminated from the playoffs, loves his job in Denver and relishes the idea of spending a second season as Peyton Manning’s offensive coordinator.”
Should Denver lose to the Patriots, Gase could be interviewed as early as Sunday night.
Other candidates who’ve already interviewed with the Browns include Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, according to Cabot. Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia was scheduled to interview on Saturday, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
Gase’s agent, Bob LaMonte, has reportedly been telling people around the league that his client may need another season as a coordinator before taking a head coaching job, Cabot writes.
Cleveland has already been turned down by Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.
