49ers, Falcons will interview Adam Gase this week

Last updated: Dec 29, 2014 4:37 PM

According to Ian Rapoport, the 49ers and Falcons have asked the Broncos for permission to interview Adam Gase. The young offensive coordinator has been mentioned for quite some time as a candidate for both team's expected head coaching vacancies.

Mike Klis reports that Atlanta and San Francisco will interview Gase in Denver on either Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.

Per Jeff Legwold, the Raiders may seek out an interview with Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio. Ian Rapoport says owner Mark Davis sought out Del Rio following Sunday's game; JDR's parents are apparently Raiders season ticket holders.

Rapoport adds that Dennis Allen is interested in a return to a DC position, perhaps with the Saints if they fire Rob Ryan. A return to Denver would make sense, should JDR head out of town.
