According to multiple reports, Adam Gase has not yet agreed to take on the 49ers head job, and has been at Dove Valley on Wednesday discussing the Denver vacancy with John Elway.
The San Francisco 49ers will hire Adam Gase to be their next head coach, according to Nate Lundy of The Fan. However, Mike Florio promptly followed his own tweet up by saying Gase and San Francisco had not yet agreed to terms.
Gase had a second interview with the Niners on Tuesday, before reportedly meeting with John Elway & Co. later that night.
As early as today, the Raiders will name Jack Del Rio their next head coach, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The Bay Area native is said to consider this his dream job; his parents are longtime Raiders season ticket holders. He's Oakland's second straight coaching hire off John Fox's now former Denver staff, after Dennis Allen three years ago.
Per NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini, Raiders owner Mark Davis wants to hire Jack Del Rio as his next head coach, and he has the blessing of one John Madden. Any delay in hiring Del Rio is apparently due to GM Reggie McKenzie's preference to remove Tony Sparano's interim tag.
Per multiple reports, the Jets have hired Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles as their new head coach. Bowles, who interviewed in Denver after Mike Shanahan was fired, reportedly got a four-year deal.
According to Manish Mehta, the Jets locked up Bowles in part due to uncertainty about whether they could land Dan Quinn, reported to be their first choice. Quinn is also said to be a candidate for the Broncos' head job, so the Bowles signing takes out one of Denver's main competitors for the Seattle DC.
According to Steve Corkran, should Jack Del Rio become Oakland's next head coach, his first choice for a defensive coordinator would be former Falcons head man Mike Smith, who filled that position under Del Rio for five years in Jacksonville.
Here are the reported candidates to succeed John Fox as Broncos head coach in 2015. We'll update this as more news breaks:
According to NFLN's Jeff Darlington, Adam Gase concluded his second interview with San Francisco and is currently meeting with John Elway & Co. at Dove Valley.
But as Darlington suggests, this may provide no indication Gase's interest or lack thereof in the Niners job. After all, 49ers brass came to Denver to meet with him, and passing on an interview with the Broncos would mean standing up Elway, and perhaps by proxy, his buddy Peyton Manning.
John Elway's search for a new head coach now reportedly includes a second closest ex-teammate. According to Mike Klis, former longtime Broncos player and coach Rick Dennison is under consideration to replace John Fox.
Dennison is currently Baltimore's quarterbacks coach under Gary Kubiak, who has been described by many to be the frontrunner for the job. The former linebacker previously auditioned for the Broncos gig after the firings of Mike Shanahan and Josh McDaniels.
Per Adam Schefter, the Broncos have requested an interview with Detroit defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, who has been one of the hotter head coaching candidates this month.
