Fox: Promoting Gase to OC just made sense

Denver Broncos putting trust in new coordinator Adam Gase

“Adam spent more time with Peyton Manning than anybody,” said Gase’s boss, Broncos head coach John Fox. “That’s what people don’t understand. ‘Coordinator’ is just a title. I think it was a logical move, in that he’s a very bright mind, he had a great relationship with Peyton as his position coach, and rather than start from square one—we could’ve hired anybody; anyone would want this job—it seemed like a natural step to let Adam do it.”

Fox isn't saying anything remotely controversial here, but when he says "anyone would want" to coordinate Denver's offense, there's a healthy dose of confidence, and perhaps even arrogance. And, I love it.
