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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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).

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

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

    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.

  7. 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.

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