Browns rumors: Adam Gase among head coaching candidates

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Gase is being considered for the head coaching vacancy in Cleveland after only one season as offensive coordinator of the Broncos.

Adam Gase has been the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos for less than a year, but he's already been the subject of head coaching interest, as Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Cleveland Browns are interested in interviewing the young coach.

Gase, 35, was promoted to offensive coordinator from his position as quarterbacks coach after Mike McCoy left to become the head coach of the San Diego Chargers. In his first season at the helm of the Broncos offense, quarterback Peyton Manning had arguably the greatest season of all-time for a quarterback, racking up 5,477 yards passing and 55 touchdown passes, both NFL single-season records.

On Monday, Kyle Montgomery of SB Nation's Broncos blog, Mile High Report, broke down Gase's coaching résumé:

Adam Gase only has one season as an NFL offensive coordinator, but in that one season he helped the Broncos break just about every NFL offensive record in the book. Most of the credit has understandably gone to QB Peyton Manning - and John Elway for creating a team loaded with so much talent - but perhaps Gase is on this list because teams recognize his impact on Denver's offense as well. Gase spent two years as Broncos wide receivers coach then two years as quarterbacks coach before his promotion to offensive coordinator in January 2013, directly coaching the likes of Brandon Marshall, Tim Tebow, and Peyton Manning.

The Browns aren't the only ones that have shown interest either, as the Minnesota Vikings are also reportedly interested in Gase.
