This time it’s Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase who has informed the Browns that he is withdrawn himself for consideration for their vacant head coaching job. That is certainly less humiliating than getting turned down by Josh McDaniels, but still bad when everyone hails the 35-year-old as being smart for declining the Browns job and waiting until a better offer comes along.
While some might crack that Gase is only a hot candidate because he got to ride Peyton Manning’s coattails for a season, that argument is somewhat undermined by the fact that Mike McCoy, the former Broncos OC, had a nice first season as head coach with the Chargers.
Hopefully, the Browns can keep the off-season hilarity going by getting turned down by a half dozen more candidates before eventually settling on this:
Player/Coach Brandon Weeden.
