The Denver Broncos announced that quarterbacks coach Adam Gase has been promoted to offensive coordinator in the wake of Mike McCoy leaving for the Chargers head coaching position.
“Adam was an integral part of the success we had offensively this season and was heavily involved in all aspects of our game plan, both during the week and on gameday,” Broncos coach John Fox said in a statement, via the Denver Post. “Maintaining that continuity with our offense was very important in this decision. While we did speak with several qualified candidates, it became clear that Adam was the best fit to be our offensive coordinator.”
Gase has reportedly spent “countless” hours with Manning during the offseason, so the two of them should have a solid working relationship next season. Gase is expected to call plays for the Broncos next season as well.
