Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Broncos OC Adam Gase is “leaning toward” staying in Denver for another season, despite interest from the Browns regarding this head coaching position.
Cleveland has yet to meet with Gase, but they are expected to do so once the Broncos season has concluded or they make it to the Super Bowl, which would allow Gase to meet with the team during the extra week before the game.
Cabot adds that the word in “league circles” is that Gase’s agent, Bob LaMonte, believes he could use another season as offensive coordinator before taking a head coaching job.
Peyton Manning is expected to be back for another season, which makes this a much easier decision.
As for the Browns, they head coaching search has been disappointing to say the least. Candidates for the job outside of Gase include: Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, Bills DC Mike Pettine, former Titans HC Mike Munchak and Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia who is reportedly interviewing for the job today.
