Apparently, Larry, Curly, Moe and company want to interview someone who may not be old enough to remember the Three Stooges.
According to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, the Browns have already asked the Broncos for permission to interview offensive coordinator Adam Gase for their head coaching vacancy.
Gase can interview this week since the Broncos have a bye, though there’s no indication that anything has been scheduled.
The 35-year-old Gase is a fast-track offensive whiz kid, who has also emerged as a possibility in Minnesota.
He has no head coaching experience, and just one year as a coordinator in the NFL. He’s benefitted from being able to call plays for some guy named Peyton Manning (such that anyone truly does), and that’s worked out OK for both of them.
The attraction to a young quarterback tutor like Gase is obvious, since the Browns have a pair of first-round picks, giving them the ability to use one to acquire a(nother) quarterback of the future. And it would also be an obvious departure from conventional wisdom, which the Browns are fighting hard to convince people they’re getting away from.
