Packers To Interview Adam Gase

The Packers are expected to interview former Dolphins head coach Adam Gase for their head coaching vacancy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein tweets. That interview is expected to come on Sunday, the same day the team interviews Tennessee’s Matt LaFleur, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky hears (Twitter link). 

Gase, who went 23-25 with the Dolphins in three seasons, wrapped up two interviews this week after meeting with the Cardinals and Jets. The 40-year-old Gase is an innovative offensive mind who rose to fame as the orchestrator of Denver’s dynamic offense during Peyton Manning‘s tenure with the team. In three years as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator, the team posted a pair of top-five offenses, including a No. 1-overall ranking in 2013 when Manning set the records for passing yards and touchdowns in a season. That type of offensive mind fits the mold of what the Packers are expected to want in a head coach to pair with Aaron Rodgers.

According to Pro Football Rumors’ head coaching search tracker, Gase will push the Packers’ number of interviews that are scheduled and expected to near double digits. That search includes other offensive minds like Josh McDaniels and Dan Campbell, as well as a host of former head coaches like Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano.

    I’d rather have Gase and his “Peyton no-huddle” than LeFleur or McDaniels.

      Other than his Manning season in Denver what has he really accomplished? He’s been league average at best

        Tebo playoff, cutler having one of his best seasons, dolphins playoffs… was really cut at the knees by injuries.

    I am sadly and selfishly hoping he doesn’t get a head coaching gig so the Lions can sit in the weeds and snag him as OC. He’s a very creative person who had a crappy QB on RB that could stay healthy so with all the ties he has to Michigan, I am hoping he returns and leads the Lions offense out of the Stone Age.

      His RB’s were fine. His QB and receivers were hurt, along with the entire O line, minus tackles.

    Hire McDaniels and have him crawfish two days later? That guy is a sleazeball
