ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Adam Gase's goal since taking over as Denver's offensive coordinator a year ago was putting the Broncos' offense with Peyton Manning in hyper drive.
So, he's not about to do anything to spoil their Super Bowl aspirations, and that includes being a distraction by interviewing for a head coaching job this weekend.
Because the Broncos have a bye, Gase could have been interviewing Sunday for the head coaching vacancies with the Cleveland Browns or Minnesota Vikings, both of whom sought permission to speak with him.
If the Broncos reach the Super Bowl, he would be allowed to interview with other teams before the big game, but he's hoping not to have any free time until Feb. 3, the day after the Super Bowl.
