The Broncos announced the hiring of Gary Kubiak as their next head coach on Monday, and Gase has been linked to several jobs outside the organization since Denver lost in the playoffs and the team parted ways with head coach John Fox.
Kubiak served as the Ravens' offensive coordinator this season, helping quarterback Joe Flacco finish with one of his best statistical seasons. The seventh-year pro finished with a 91.0 quarterback rating after completing 62.1 percent of his passes for 3,986 yards and 27 touchdowns to 12 interceptions, and the Ravens finished eighth in scoring (25.6 points per game) and 12th in total offense (364.9 yards per game).
In Jacksonville, Gase would work under head coach Gus Bradley and be expected to tutor quarterback Blake Bortles, who just completed his rookie season. In 14 games (13 starts), Bortles posted a 69.5 quarterback rating after completing 58.9 percent of his passes for 2,908 yards and 11 touchdowns to 17 interceptions.
The Jaguars finished last in scoring (15.6 points per game) and 31st in total offense (289.6 yards per game). The team fired offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch late last month.
Gase, 36, just finished his second season as the Broncos' offensive coordinator. He joined the Broncos in 2009, first coaching wide receivers and then quarterbacks.
