A look at 2015's NFL coaching candidates
And Gase comes with other concerns, most notably his age. In the modern NFL, few head coaches hired so far before their 40th birthday have succeeded at a high level—many failing in colossal fashion. Highlighting just the past decade of these mistakes are Lane Kiffin, Raheem Morris, Eric Mangini, and Josh McDaniels (coincidentally a roommate of Gase’s when both worked at Michigan State).
Maybe the allure of getting to coach Manning will keep Gase around for another year or two. Then again, safe to say the Broncos will fine as long as Peyton's around, Gase or not.
