Eagles, Browns, Dolphins all expected to chase Adam Gase

cD05ODdlNmNhY2MwMjRlZWQzNTJhM2ViYTQ1Y2VlY2YzOCZnPWJjNzZjMDAzYzI2MGViNTQ1ZDI4Mjg4YjM0MjIzY2Rm-1 AP

The first brass ring in the looming coaching carousel likely will go to Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

Per a league source not connected in any way to Gase, three teams are expected to pursue Gase aggressively: The Eagles, Browns, and Dolphins.

Only two of those teams currently have vacancies. Cleveland is expected to make a coaching change, too.

Gase emerged as a hot candidate based on his work with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, an effort that came after three years of working with Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Gase’s ability to thrive with a quarterback having a reputation of caring too much immediately followed by a quarterback having a reputation for caring too little bolsters the perception that Gase can get the most out of any quarterback.

And in a quarterback-driven league, that’s one of the most important skills any head coach can have.

The Eagles could have the first crack at Gase, given that they already have satisfied the Rooney Rule via the interview of current running backs coach Duce Staley. Gase, in theory, could be interviewed as soon as Monday and hired on the spot, if the two sides decide to proceed. But Gase, who is represented by Jimmy Sexton, surely won’t pounce on the first offer without exploring any and all others.

Last year, Gase was a finalist for the job in San Francisco, which ultimately went to Jim Tomsula. After the Broncos fired John Fox, Gase never received serious consideration for a promotion.

Cleveland could be the most intriguing option for Gase, who perhaps could persuade Peyton Manning to join Gase for one final season that would be more about erasing the memory of a horrendous 2015 for Peyton than chasing a Super Bowl title.

    Somehow, I don’t think that’s quite what you meant.

  2. jjrs89 says: Jan 2, 2016 5:41 PM

    So one eagle?

  3. southpaw79 says: Jan 2, 2016 5:42 PM

    The Niners should of grabbed him while they had the chance. It was said that Gase was going to keep Fangio as DC as well last year. What might have been……

  4. brownstown6586 says: Jan 2, 2016 5:43 PM

    Gase did a pretty good job for the Bears this year. Who knows where he will end up. The only real reason why he would pick coming to Cleveland would be he gets to pick his quarterback of the future. Other teams might have guys he doesn’t want. Who knows

  5. whooligun says: Jan 2, 2016 5:43 PM

    Lions should be in the mix too.

  6. duff23 says: Jan 2, 2016 5:44 PM

    Why would any coach want to go to Clev2? So they can get fired after 1year?

  7. mwcarolina says: Jan 2, 2016 5:44 PM

    my guess is that Gase is Miami’s 2nd choice. i think they’ll chase after him if they can’t get Chip Kelly, but i think they’ll go after a bigger name and that bigger name is Chip.

    as for Philly and Cleveland Gase would be great for them both. he could do well with Bradford (who i think will be re-signed) and he will use Murray CORRECTLY and likely have them back in the playoff hunt next year. as for Cleveland, Gase will only work out if they trade Manziel away. Manziel is a bad fit for Gase.

  8. coltzfan166 says: Jan 2, 2016 5:45 PM

    Well Adam Gase was the guy the Browns wanted all along but he turned them down and therefore were stuck hiring Pettine

  9. Seprix says: Jan 2, 2016 5:45 PM

    Gase is NOT going to the Browns, and he is NOT bringing Manning with him. He’s not stupid.

  10. xpensivewinos says: Jan 2, 2016 5:47 PM

    Dolphins have not had a head coach who came into their building with previous NFL head coaching experience since Jimmy Johnson.

    Be it interim or full-time head coaches, this will be the Dolphins 9th head coach since Johnson left in 1999.

    Gee, if only we could see a pattern. Like Steve Martin said in The Man With Two Brains, “can you give me a sign, just any kind of sign? I’ll be on the lookout for it”

    Yeah, that will happen when the Redskins change their name. Like, never.

    Which one is the Eagle?

  13. mcjon22 says: Jan 2, 2016 5:54 PM

    So what you are saying is, it’s between the Eagles and Dolphins.

    Because Cleveland is the shelter of last resort, not somewhere you go when you have options.

  14. atwatercrushesokoye says: Jan 2, 2016 5:54 PM

    From what I read last year, Gase was actually offered the 49ers job with the stipulation that he keep Tomsula on, when he said no they pulled their offer and gave the job to Tomsula. I wonder if they regret that in hindsight?

  15. sdiegosteel says: Jan 2, 2016 5:56 PM

    If Peyton is thinking of going to Cleveland, please put him into the concussion protocol immediately.

  16. bassplucker says: Jan 2, 2016 5:56 PM

    Great. Sure hope we can at least keep Lougains around or the return of Bad Jay in 2016 is virtually guaranteed.

    If I were Gase, I’d wait for the Colts to come ringing if he wants a long career.

  19. clownsfan says: Jan 2, 2016 6:04 PM

    Last year Gase told the Browns not to bother calling him. Expect the same to happen this year as well

  20. maestro1899 says: Jan 2, 2016 6:04 PM

    Gase’s ability to thrive with a quarterback having a reputation of caring too much immediately followed by a quarterback having a reputation for caring too little bolsters the perception that Gase can get the most out of any quarterback.
    ——————————————————————

    Don’t forget in Denver, he designed an offense for Tim Tebow’s “skillset” that actually worked well enough to get them to the playoffs and even a win. He also got a 6-0 start and 4,000+ yards out of Kyle “Neckbeard” Orton.

    He’s done very well designing offenses for a lot of different styles of QBs.

  21. tonebones says: Jan 2, 2016 6:15 PM

    Every year there is a hot name, then he’s fired in three years. How many times have we seen this? I wouldn’t sign Gase. He’s never been a head coach, and he’s only been a coordinator a couple years. I’d rather get a retread that has coaching experience. Someone in the mold of a Bill Belichick or a Pete Carroll. There are a lot of good coaches who didn’t succeed their first time around because they didn’t have a great QB. Gase might have his best chance with the Colts, if they kept their defensive coordinator. They have a strong front office and a great QB. I guess every coach will list Indy as their number one choice.

  22. wallyspo says: Jan 2, 2016 6:17 PM

    The Bears need to force Fox to retire and hand the keys to Gase. That or give Gase a huge raise to hold him until Fox does retire for real.

    But, in typical Bears fashion, they won’t.

  23. realfootballfan says: Jan 2, 2016 6:19 PM

    I don’t know. I might remain a coordinator if those were my choices.

  24. firecracker87 says: Jan 2, 2016 6:20 PM

    Except he was the Quarterbacks coach when Tebow took them to the playoffs. He didn’t design that offense. Mike McCoy did, that’s why he got the HC job in SD. Also Kyle Orton never threw for over 4,000 yards. The closest he came was 3,800 or so and Gase was a WR coach then.

    Take Peyton with him to Cleveland as a QB? The rest of the AFC North would like that! Also, Cleveland is going to be picking #1 or #2, more likely #1. If Peyton goes to Cleveland, do the Browns pull the trigger on a QB with the #1 or #2 pick with Peyton on board and Manzeil in the wings? Probably doesn’t matter. They find a way to mess it up anyways! :/

  28. briggsisbrokeagain says: Jan 2, 2016 6:32 PM

    It was good experience for Gase to go withFox to the Bears and see what it takes to take over a franchise that was in trouble and begin a turn around. Someone is going to get a good coach.

    no, but how about this. they hire Gase, sign Peyton Manning, then in round 2 draft Cardale Jones to be “the future” of the team and have him learn under Peyton for a year, then take over for him. with that said, i dont see any of this happening.

  30. pastabelly says: Jan 2, 2016 6:44 PM

    If I were an owner and a coaching candidate told me that they were bringing in Manning for a year, I would show him the door. Manning should retire or be a back up / quarterback coach.

  31. bassplucker says: Jan 2, 2016 6:47 PM

    What stinks about this for Bears fans is that we would never get to see what Gase’ s offense could have been with three healthy top-line WRs and a good OL… all of which I believe are only one offseason and a little bit of luck away.

  32. badguy711 says: Jan 2, 2016 6:50 PM

    Haslet needs to start over. And either hire a GM who picks his own coach, or hire a Coach who picks a GM. But between Haslet, Farmer and Pettite, the Coach seems like the least of the problems. And Peyton Manning at this point of his career going to Cleveland for one year, is literally the stupidiest thing Ive ever read on this site. That is saying something.

    I’d say Peyton to the Rams is more likely.
    History with Jeff Fisher and no cold weather games (whether in STL or LA)

  41. antikytheraeagles says: Jan 2, 2016 7:04 PM

    Peyton goes to Cleveland. The Browns do not draft a QB high because of it. Peyton plays just well enough to miss playoffs and get the Browns a nice 15-ish draft pick. Peyton retires. Browns left basically worse off than they are.

    Not happening.

    There is no can’t-miss QB prospect this year. The Dolphins might have the most talented roster to work with, but with their GM on the outs their search is going to be double complicated while they try to find a coach and GM who will work well together, and they’ve got one of the worst owners in the league in Ross.

    I won’t be upset if the Eagles don’t land him as I prefer a defensive coach, but of those three teams they might work out the best. His choices are not exactly fantastic

  42. golions1 says: Jan 2, 2016 7:04 PM

    Who is going to hire Jim Schwartz,? He is like Jeff Fisher without the charm.

  43. whodey420 says: Jan 2, 2016 7:04 PM

    I’m an Ohio State homer but Cardale Jones chosen anywhere in the draft before round 3 is a mistake.
    Jones blew it by not coming out last year. Like the old
    saying, “Strike while the iron is hot”! He would have
    been the 3rd QB taken last year behind Winston and
    Mariota.

    Jones has a cannon of an arm but isn’t exactly the brightest
    light on the Christmas tree. He’s a developmental pick.

  44. mountaindont says: Jan 2, 2016 7:05 PM

    Whomever the Browns select as a new coach or whomever they draft you can always count on 1 thing. It will be the wrong choice

  45. thames2vvvvvvrebel89130 says: Jan 2, 2016 7:07 PM

    “If I were Gase, I’d wait for the Colts to come ringing if he wants a long career.”

    totally agree with this poster; you already have your franchise qb in place, luck, to build around; imagine gase working with luck

    browns, only advantage is # 2 pick in draft for him to pick lynch/goff, phins have tannehill, (sux) and eagles have bradford who’s contract is expiring

    colts would be my choice

  46. rutledge3197 says: Jan 2, 2016 7:12 PM

    ———————–

    While he failed in Philly he could’ve learned some valuable lessons. If his ego allows him to see his shortcomings, then his next stop should get a better coach than the Eagles saw.

    Belichek and Pete Carroll didn’t do very well at their initial stops. Not saying he’s going to win, just saying it’s a possibility.

  48. phillyphanatic77 says: Jan 2, 2016 7:17 PM

    Id be okay with the Eagles bringing in Gase, McDermott and probably even McDaniels. I have no clue if any of those three will find success as head coaches but there aren’t a ton of options this offseason.

    The reality of possibly not having a QB or a 2nd round pick is very depressing. But if Bradford stays I think Gase could get some solid results out of him.

  49. clownsfan says: Jan 2, 2016 7:22 PM

  50. The Almighty Cabbage says: Jan 2, 2016 7:32 PM

    If Gase leaves Chicago, Jay Cutler is liable to jump off a building and I don’t think I could blame him.

    The VERY LAST thing Miami needs is a whole bunch of IF’S and maybe’s. They have had enough . Your 2 examples really don’t hold water .. There a ton of coaches that have had more than one shot at being a HC…. CHIP and his hurry up style will do two things::: get the QB killed and leave the D on the field for way to long….

  52. chrisk61 says: Jan 2, 2016 7:54 PM

    gase ??

    what a joke. what value do you add as the OC to peyton manning ? answer is you add zero value and take as much credit as fools allow you to take.

    and OC this yr for bears. oh boy, they are 6-9. what an offensive juggernaut.

    don’t do it. huge mistake. which means either cleve or mia will.

  53. pdp2100 says: Jan 2, 2016 8:01 PM

    If the Eagles don’t land Gase, then Hue Jackson may be the next best choice for them. Sean McDermott would be #3 after those two.

    So the Eagles basically interviewed Staley first and foremost to get the Rooney Rule accepted and now they can go after who they want.

    This is not what this rule was meant to bring and even Rooney acknowledged its misused every year. Interview Staley if you really feel he’s fit for the job, don’t just say lets get the Rooney Rule out of the way.

  57. bloozmann says: Jan 2, 2016 8:16 PM

    As a Bear fan I can say this about Gase..Your QB will cut down on the int’s because he hardly gets to throw the ball..Gase is the worst play caller in the NFL..Run up the middle is all this guy knows..Someone PLEASE take this guy off our hands..I’ll even throw John Fox in as a bonus. Between the 2 of them, they cots the Bears 3-4 wins this season..In my 38 years of watching Bear football, I only turned the game off 3 times…Those 3 times were the last 3 games they played

  58. whodey420 says: Jan 2, 2016 8:24 PM

    I think the Dolphins owner is going to be “gun shy” big
    time in hiring his next coach. Especially after the Suh
    debacle! Suh didn’t exactly light it up in Miami this year.
    57 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 5 passes defended. After signing a 6 yr. – $114 million with $59.95 million guaranteed contract!

    His stats his last year in Detroit: 53 tackles, 8.5 sacks and 3 passes defended.

    4 more tackles, 2 less passes defended and 3 less sacks.

    Nothing to get too excited about for sure! :/

  59. snaponrules says: Jan 2, 2016 8:27 PM

    Gase told the browns last year not to waste their time. He will tell them the same again this year. No coach worth anything would go to factory of sadness.

    Miami is not much different they had to settle for any coach that would take the job last time. This time will be the same.
    No decent team is going to want chip, miami would have a chance at him.
    Gase will get any of the jobs he wants. Most likely the colts because of luck.

  60. mgm54 says: Jan 2, 2016 8:33 PM

    Manning has a foot issue, not a mental one. Using HGH (if he did) is not like using hallucinogens. No way he goes to Cleveland, with Gase or anyone else; least not to play ball.

  61. whodey420 says: Jan 2, 2016 8:36 PM

    A little “off topic” but speaking of Ndamukong Suh.

    2010 NFL Draft

    Ndamukong Suh: 1st round, #2 overall career stats:

    296 tackles, 41.5 sacks, 1 safety and 20 passes defended.

    Geno Atkins: 4th round, #120 overall career stats:

    209 tackles, 42 sacks, 1 safety and 6 passes defended.

    Geno Atkins miss half of the 2013 season and his total
    contract is less than Suh’s guaranteed money!!

    Geno’s contract: 5 years, 53.3 million, $15 million guaranteed.

    Suh’s contract: 6 years, $114 million, 59.95 million
    guaranteed.

    Who would you take?

    Thanks Jed York. Instead of having a guy who could actually coach the team, you saddled us with a clueless Tomsula who’s most lasting impressions are looking befuddled on the sidelines and allegedly passing gas at another one of his unintelligible press conferences.

    Always a pleasure to read comments. So much concern about a Cleveland franchise that isn’t a threat to any team. Who outside of any of these teams’ fanbases should care about where he goes.

  65. fanofpft says: Jan 2, 2016 8:42 PM

    Dolphins have not had a head coach who came into their building with previous NFL head coaching experience since Jimmy Johnson.

    Be it interim or full-time head coaches, this will be the Dolphins 9th head coach since Johnson left in 1999.

    I have been beating the same drum. But that last coach was Dave Wannstedt who left in 2004.

    Gee, if only we could see a pattern. Like Steve Martin said in The Man With Two Brains, “can you give me a sign, just any kind of sign? I’ll be on the lookout for it”

    If the Dolphin franchise had brains they would make sure they get the coach with past NFL experience. Have owner Ross empty his deep pockets and land Kelly before the game of musical chairs starts this weekend.

    I get that Gase played a part in turning Cutler around. But that was as OC. When ever this kind of thing happened in the past. The OC in question had to much on the plate as a first time new HC to have any impact on fixing what ever playing in question.

  66. howiehandles says: Jan 2, 2016 8:43 PM

    “round 2 draft Cardale Jones to be “the future” of the team”

    Are you the GM of Cleveland? This would explain why they keep spinning their wheels. Guy has started how many games, and you’re drafting him in the 2nd round? Yikes.

  67. whodey420 says: Jan 2, 2016 8:45 PM

    Not the stats mind you. The contract. I was just throwing the stats out there to show what Miami got for their money.

    That’s all. That alone is probably half of why Hickey, (Dolphins GM) got fired to begin with in my opinion.
    That and the results of the Dolphins season.

  68. bassplucker says: Jan 2, 2016 8:45 PM

    Another possibility? Gase interviews 3 or 4 places, gets an idea of what his market value is and uses that to leverage a new contract from the Bears that basically makes him the highest paid non HC in the league and gives him right of first refusal to succeed Fox. I don’t know if the McCaskeys would sign off on that but honestly, the Eagles Fins and Browns – and yes the Colts too – all come with potential landmines for their new HCs and Gase seems savvy enough that he won’t just jump to jump into a bad situation, especially if the Bears can make it worth his while to stick around.

  69. howiehandles says: Jan 2, 2016 8:46 PM

    ““If I were Gase, I’d wait for the Colts to come ringing if he wants a long career.”

    Yeah, but if Grigson is still the GM, that’s not a plus.

    First, if you are going to comment about a team and its management, please at least google their names so you can spell them right. If you actually had a clue about Haslam and his close relationship with the Manning family then you would realize that the idea of Peyton coming to Cleveland is not as far fetched as it sounds to the ignorant. Peyton could play for one or two seasons under his old OC. in Gase, and be given a front office position/ and part ownership in the team, when he retires. Even though it doesn’t seem believable that Peyton would have any desire to play for a losing team, there could be a lot more to consider. If anyone could lead the browns back to the playoffs, a healthy Peyton Manning could be the man, and that alone would make him a hero in Cleveland, and be a great way to end his HOF career.

    Andy Dalton – 6 yrs. $96 million – $17 million guaranteed.

    Ryan Tannehill – 4 yrs. $77 million – $45 million guaranteed.

    Salary cap killing contracts handed out by your G.M.,
    (who got canned) is going to cause your owner to be
    “gun shy” about hiring a new head coach. Especially one
    who may want “full control”.

    Manning will go to Browns but as the Head Coach Woo Hoo all things right with the Universe

    “War the Brown’s annual head-coaching search…” This was written to Rome (Jim Rome) on his radio show 2 year’s ago. I realize this guy actually got 2 years, but it is comical if it wasn’t so sad…

    Complete overhaul? They should start with those uniforms – worst in any sport, high school, college, or professional.

    My feeling is that Adam Gase would be very wise to avoid accepting a job with these three teams. Unstable from top to bottom thanks to very shaky ownership.

    If I were him, I’d wait for a better situation and if none arises, just coach another year in Chicago under John Fox.

    Nobody is picking Cleveland with another option on the table. They change coaches like I change socks. Who wants to join a franchise that knows nothing but failure, but is going to fire you if you don’t find success in the first 2 years? Certainly not anybody with another choice

    On the fence with this. Unlike former Bears OC Mike Martz, who took his “Greatest Show on Turf” (Saint Louie Rams/Kurt Warner) to a Super Bowl 34 win, Adam Gase does not possess such a pure gem on his resume (e.g., Big Bro Manning scoring only eight (8) points versus the Seahacks [sic] in Super Bowl 48… ugh…). Risk > Reward?

    My reason for lumping them in with the others is due to the front office problems that led to Reid’s ouster and then allowing Kelly to ultimately gaining “absolute power”. Lurie’s not doing a good job on defining the chain of command in his organization, so don’t thumbs down me for that.

    Atten Readers – Dont listen to the 96% of arm chair experts in here.

    Adam Gase is not that good of a coach, heck, he’s getting way too much cred as it is. He will be a softy of a HC and will not be even remotely as good as everyone seems to try and hype him to be. He was very average at play calling with bears regardless of the top 3 bears WR being injured.

    HES OVER HYPED!

    You heard it here first, make no mistake about it and REMEMBER THIS…who ever gets Gace, will see him flounder the team!

  81. janneywheels says: Jan 3, 2016 12:32 AM

    looking at the numbers, I’m not seeing how Gase has made Cutler a whole lot better than he was in 2014.

  82. thermalito says: Jan 3, 2016 12:36 AM

    Shockingly, the bumbling SF 49ers actually chose retard Jim Tomsula over Gase as coach this offseason.

  83. lukedunphysscienceproject says: Jan 3, 2016 12:54 AM

    I have nothing against Adam Gase. He may turn out to be a fine head coach. And he does have the feather in his cap of being the only coach in the league that was able to get anything out of Tim Tebow.

    But I always find it interesting when someone makes an argument for a head coaching candidate by pointing out how good they are at something that they won’t be doing if they become a head coach.

    If and when Adam Gase becomes a head coach, he won’t be coaching QBs on a daily basis. If he is, your team is in trouble. How many teams have gone down the tubes while their one-trick pony head coach was only paying attention to one part of the team?

    Has he shown any of the type of large group leadership skills necessary to be a successful head coach?

    So the Eagles basically interviewed Staley first and foremost to get the Rooney Rule accepted and now they can go after who they want.

    This is not what this rule was meant to bring and even Rooney acknowledged its misused every year. Interview Staley if you really feel he’s fit for the job, don’t just say lets get the Rooney Rule out of the way.
    ———————————————–

    Maybe they just wanted to interview him first and he happens to be black? Could be a possibility

  85. vikingsftw says: Jan 3, 2016 1:21 AM

    He will land with the Cowboys to replace that girly buffoon loser Garrett. You heard it hear first!

  86. pixelzombie says: Jan 3, 2016 3:17 AM

    Maybe the Bears can promise him the HC job when Fox leaves. The guy has got to be thinking retirement in the next few years.

  87. igocommando says: Jan 3, 2016 3:17 AM

    Reports out of GB have the packers in the running as well.

  88. johnniemayes says: Jan 3, 2016 6:36 AM

    Manning and Gase to the Phins!

  89. TheDPR says: Jan 3, 2016 6:37 AM

    Jeff Lurie learned his lesson. He jumped the gun on Chip, promoting him before he accomplished anything rather than after. He won’t do that again. Howie Roseman has made his power play and is now entrenched. No accomplished HC is going to Philadelphia because he’ll have to defer to Howie for personnel. It will have to be an up-and-coming guy looking for his first HC shot.

    Same goes for Indy if they don’t fire Grigson. The HC will have no personnel input because that buffoon thinks he knows what he’s doing, and he’ll lose Andrew Luck after his rookie contract is up next season. Nobody with sense wants to go to Indy at this point.

  90. johnniemayes says: Jan 3, 2016 6:45 AM

    Manning and Gase to the Browns!

    —————————-

    What front office problems that led to Reids ouster? He was there 14 years. Reid had full personnel control and gave an aging Michael Vick a 5 year/$100 mill contract. Year 1 of Vick got Reid fired and year 2 saw Vick as a backup who was cut.

    Reid’s ouster was on Andy Reid.

    Lurie did err in giving Chip total control and Chip erred in asking for it and then denying he asked for it or even that he was the defacto GM.

    I don’t think there was any confusion in the Eagles as to who was responsible for what. I think that Chip wanted the power from day 1 and eventually it came down to give him the power or fire him. Lurie blinked and gave him the power. Chip then went mad scientist on the roster and blew the whole thing up but not in a positive way. Every big ticket player that he brought in was an utter failure last year, including Bradford. It doesn’t matter if you think Bradford can be better than he played last year, he wasn’t and he was only under contract for 1 year at 13x the salary of Foles. The Eagles are going to miss that very high 2nd round pick as well as they try to rebuild.

    Anyway, the roles were defined, it just didn’t work out. I’m not sure anyone can really defend Chip at this point.

    Go after Urban Meyer.. Colts are going for Saban I’m sure Meyer would love to go back to Florida

  93. couchbasher says: Jan 3, 2016 9:52 AM

    Is this what Ron Wolf came up with? Browns still need a football guy in there.

    Maybe Haslam is copying the Jerry Jones model?

  94. greenbaychicksarefat says: Jan 3, 2016 10:15 AM

    Chip Kelly is a lock to go to Tenn.

  95. kevb62 says: Jan 3, 2016 10:19 AM

    The Bears need to give Gase a raise and officially make him the assistant head coach and stipulating he’ll be the next HC if Fox decides to retire. By doing that, they do not need to allow teams to interview him.

    But being the Bears, they’ll idiotically allow him to leave…..
