Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase turns down interview with Cleveland Browns

Chris Humphreys – USA Today Sports

Like Mike McCoy before him, Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase stands to benefit from a season at the helm of an offense run by Peyton Manning. As the dust from Black Monday settles, it is not surprising that teams are expressing interest in the play caller for the offense that just broke the single-season record for points scored.

As reports of that interest emerged, Gase claimed to have no interest in interviews until after the season ends. Tonight the Denver Post confirms that Gase meant what he said, as he declined an opportunity to interview for the position with the Cleveland Browns:

I’m appreciative of the interest I’ve received, but I’ve decided to postpone any potential opportunities until after our season concludes.

My complete focus is helping our team prepare for our divisional playoff game.”

If the Broncos have it their way, Gase won’t be available for an interview until sometime in the middle of February. The Minnesota Vikings reportedly will also be interested in Gase along with Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.

Gase, who is 35 years old, was the quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator at the start of this season.

    This is what a true pro does, no distractions, how can he focus on his job when he already has another job waiting for him win or lose!!! Same think last year when San Diego started poaching Mike Mccoy the team lost its focus and this time they are only thinking playoffs!!! Go Broncos

      I tend to agree, @albertomilian:disqus. If these teams really want coordinators who are in the playoffs, they ought to be able to wait for them.
