According to NFLN, the Raiders have asked the Broncos for permission to interview Adam Gase about their OC vacancy. Gase has also reportedly drawn interest as an OC from Jacksonville, Cleveland, Atlanta, and St. Louis.
John Elway, Joe Ellis, Tom Heckert, and Matt Russell are among the Broncos executives in Houston today to interview Gary Kubiak for the team's head coaching job. At this point, hiring Kubiak appears to be an inevitability. According to Mike Klis, the two sides are hoping to have a decision by Tuesday, when Kubiak's fellow Ravens coaches are due on Phoenix to prep for the Pro Bowl.
According to Mike Klis, Rick Dennison is the likely offensive coordinator under Gary Kubiak, should the latter end up the Broncos' head coach, as is widely expected. However, Dennison is also considered a candidate to replace Kubiak in Baltimore.
According to Michael Silver, Adam Gase will interview for Jacksonville's OC vacancy. With all signs pointing to Gary Kubiak landing Denver's head job, it looks like Gase is resigned to finding an OC position elsewhere. There's talk of Gase following John Fox to Chicago or Jack Del Rio to Oakland, and he's also reportedly an OC candidate for Atlanta, St. Louis, and Cleveland.
Gase auditioned for head jobs with Denver, Atlanta, San Francisco, Buffalo, and Chicago.
According to Mike Klis, Adam Gase and Dennis Allen are among the coordinator candidates for John Fox in Chicago. Gase interviewed for the Broncos' head job and is an OC candidate with St. Louis, Atlanta, Jacksonville, and Cleveland. Along with Allen, Jim Schwartz, Mike Smith, and Vic Fangio are possible defensive coordinators.
Smith has also been mentioned as a likely DC for Jack Del Rio in Oakland; Smith was JDR's DC for several years in Jacksonville. Del Rio's offensive line coach is expected to be Mike Tice, who was released from his contract with Atlanta.
According to Adam Caplan, the Broncos are one of many teams to have visited with CFL All-Star corner Delvin Breaux. The 25-year-old suffered a serious neck injury in high school, and was never cleared to play in college, but laudably, LSU still honored his scholarship.
Seeing the handwriting on the wall, Doug Marrone has backed out of his Saturday interview with the Broncos, according to Adam Schefter. Teryl Austin also canceled his interview, which had been scheduled for Friday.
Gary Kubiak, the heavy favorite to land the job, will interview on Sunday with longtime buddy John Elway. Of course, Kubiak has been the favorite since well before the scheduling of Marrone's interview was announced, so not sure what's changed between then and now.
Sit down for this one, folks. According to Dianna Marie Russini, Mike Shanahan, two-time SB-winning head coach, is a candidate to reprise his role as offensive coordinator for the 49ers.
Did a second year out of the NFL (2009) provide Shanny with an enormous dose of humility? I want to suggest that Russini has a typo in there, but it reads pretty clearly:
According to Adam Schefter, the Broncos will interview former Bills coach Doug Marrone on Saturday. Marrone opted out of his contract with Buffalo after two seasons, but lost out in his bid for the Jets job. He's also interviewed with Chicago and Atlanta.
Prior to the Bills gig, Marrone was the head coach at Syracuse (2009-12) and offensive coordinator in New Orleans (2006-08) under Sean Payton.
Joseph is interviewing with Denver Friday for the head job, but could end up running the defense for Kubiak. The former CU Buff was the Texans' secondary coach for Kubiak from 2011 to 2013.
