Adam Gase doesn’t know where he’ll be coaching in 2015 yet, but he isn’t lacking for possibilities.

Gase didn’t get the 49ers coaching job, but he spoke to Broncos General Manager John Elway on Wednesday about making the move from offensive coordinator to head coach in Denver. He could presumably also remain in Denver as the offensive coordinator on the staff of another head coach or he could wind up running the offense elsewhere.

We’ve already heard that the Rams have requested permission to speak with Gase about their offensive coordinator opening and now Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Falcons have made the same request.

The Falcons don’t have a head coach, of course, but they are interviewing Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin for the second time on Thursday. Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn could also be a candidate for the job and either man would need someone to run the offense on their staff.

The Jaguars and Browns are also looking for offensive coordinators and Gase could wind up on their radars before he moves off the market.
