Eagles bringing Adam Gase back for a second interview

The Eagles got a week’s head start on the coaching carousel, and they’re moving quickly to the next stage of the process.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase’s interview went sufficiently well that they’re scheduling a second interview for this weekend.

Gase is a busy guy, with the Eagles, Browns and Dolphins on his list, and the Giants trying to get an interview as well.

It will be interesting to see how other teams respond, as he has emerged as the hot candidate this year, giving him leverage.

    He’s gone. Hope the Bears have a good contingency plan in place.

    I was kind of bummed that the Jags didn’t hire him as OC in the offseason, but in hindsight Greg Olsen has done a great job and won’t be jumping ship after one year. There is something to be said about stability.

    I hope somebody signs him before Miami can.

    Dan Campbell for head coach!

    Go Phins!

    i really don’t get the hype around this guy…. peyton ran the offense in denver when he was there, and people are acting like he turned cutler into elway, but cutler’s numbers this near aren’t that great. we need to go out and get a HC that will devote real effort to the defense. i’d feel much better with mcdermott as the HC and shurmur as the OC

    Could this guy be the next Charlie Weis? And I don’t mean to pick on Charlie. He’s actually a very good football coach. It’s easy to look smart when you’re coaching a Hall of Fame QB, but very few coaches have been able to win without one (Except Joe Gibbs).

    He was great for the Bears. I wish he would stay as OC

    Is this another guy Baalke turned away for the great Tomsula?

    Love the chatter how awesome he was in Chicago w/ a 6-10 record. Then the next argument for him is “look what he did w/ P Manning!” as if PM wasn’t already 1st ballot before going to Denver. And of course, there is that one Tebow hail mary that cements him as the next great coach!

    Doesn’t matter. Lurie and Howie will fire him in 3 years anyways.

    Damn, really thought Duce had a chance #sarcasm

    Because leading the incredible Bears offense (ranked #21 this year) makes you the top candidate for a head coaching job?

  12. purpleguy says: Jan 6, 2016 11:26 AM

    I wonder if Cutler has ever had the same OC two years in a row.

  13. chicagosportsfan11 says: Jan 6, 2016 11:29 AM

    Maybe they attempt to trade for Cutler?

  14. bassplucker says: Jan 6, 2016 11:31 AM

    Eagles play the Bears in 2016, too. That should be interesting.

  15. jonwill57 says: Jan 6, 2016 11:39 AM

    I would be disappointed if he’s hired.

  16. bobbyhoying says: Jan 6, 2016 11:40 AM

    No way he gets the job. Richard Simmons is a much better fit. No tough workouts. No hurt players’ feelings. Lots of hugs. No threat to want GM position.

    People are forgetting that Gase was a hot HC prospect last year already. It’s a known fact that he would have been the Niners HC this year but their front office balked at keeping Fangio around (which Gase had demanded) and that killed the deal.

    The fact that he put together a mostly competent offense with very little talent in Chicago certainly hasn’t hurt his stock over the past year and may have even helped it.

    Please let this guy get the job in Philly.

    Doesn’t really matter until Lurie realizes the real issue and gets rid of Roseman but I do prefer Gase over Shurmur or Pederson. Curious why they haven’t spoken to McDermott.

  20. admiral174 says: Jan 6, 2016 2:01 PM

    You don’t want him. He needs to stay in Chicago.

    Ever consider that maybe he can’t? What else explains this?

    Gase looks like the coach the Eagles have targeted, he comes back on the weekend and becomes Eagles head coach.
