The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Saturday that Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase is likely to remain the offensive coordinator with the Broncos next season rather than pursue the Browns head coaching job.

Gase, 35, has been the offensive coordinator with Denver for only one season. He followed Mike McCoy, who took the San Diego head coaching position last season. While Gase is widely regarded as a strong head coaching candidate, he has refused to interview until after the Broncos have ended their playoff run.

Gase has also been counseled by several people around him to take his time and get to know more about running an entire team. Most of his experience has been limited to working with quar-terbacks.
