According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Broncos Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase is leaning towards staying In Denver with Peyton Manning and company rather then joining the Cleveland Browns as their Head Coach if offered the job.
According to Cabot, Gase loves his job in Denver, and relishes the idea of spending a second season as the Denver Broncos Offensive Coordinator. Gase would rather work a second season with Quarterback Peyton Manning, instead of being the Head Coach in Cleveland it appears.
Cabot also reports that "the word around league circles" is that Adam Gase's agent Bob LaMonte believes Gase could use another year as an Offensive Coordinator.
Gase has declined to interview for the Head Coaching position in Cleveland until the Broncos are eliminated for postseason play, or after the Super Bowl. Gase got some praise from John Elway this week when he decided to delay interviewing with the Browns.
"For him to be able to do what he did and to say, 'I want to keep my focus on the Denver Broncos, and once our season is over, I'll interview,' to me, that was studly," Elway said, via ESPN.com. "Because it was to me, I like guys that are committed to what they're doing, committed to the Denver Broncos. So I couldn't be more proud of that decision. It tells you a lot about the guy."via
Elway also went on to say that he wish he could have played for current Broncos Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase...
"I wish I could have played for him," Elway added. "I think that he's so bright and he's working with Peyton and having been here with Josh (McDaniels) before that -- who is a very bright, young offensive mind -- he has just used all of that and learned from all that. With (Mike) McCoy here, then Peyton here and now him on his own, he's been able to put them all together and mold it as his personality and I think he's done a tremendous job. That shows up in the numbers we've put up this year."
Gase has a great opportunity in Denver if he decides to stick around for another season. He will have the opportunity to add to his resume with another great offensive season in 2014. Also lets face it, Cleveland is not the most desirable job in the NFL. They fired Rob Chudzinski after one season on the job. So I do not blame Gase if he decides to stay In Denver.
