Looks like the Denver Broncos coaching staff could stay intact for 2014.
Reports are indicating that the Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase is leaning towards staying as the team’s offensive coordinator for the 2014 season. This is great news for the team and the fans. Gase has done a tremendous job since taking over the job after Mike McCoy‘s departure. His offense is the best unit in the NFL and has set numerous records from Peyton Manning‘s individual records, players with ten-plus touchdowns and the team’s point totals of this season. Had Gase decided to pursue a coaching job it would have been the second straight year the Broncos would have to hire a new offensive coordinator.
I believe it is the right move for Gase to consider staying with the team. Being a key coordinator for only a year, it would be wise for him to stay as a coordinator for at least one more year just to get more experience running a portion of the team. He has gotten a lot of help from Manning, and I believe he has learned from the veteran quarterback. With all angles pointing towards him staying, he can continue to focus on the team’s challenges ahead. The next challenge begins when the New England Patriots play the Broncos for the right to play in the Super Bowl.
Gase has done such a tremendous job in his first year as the offensive coordinator, and it appears for at least one more year he will be the leader of the offense. He definitely has the coaching ability, but noting that he does not believe he is ready for that next step is a smart decision. He knows that he still has a lot to learn, and taking that extra year will help him in the long run. It is great for Broncos fans knowing that he will be around a little bit longer.
