Report: Falcons to request interview with Adam Gase for OC position

Thursday January 15th, 2015

The Atlanta Falcons will request an interview with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase for the same position, Ian Rapoport of reports.

After the Broncos and head coach John Fox mutually agreed to part ways, Gase's future with the team has been unclear. He was reportedly a finalist for the San Francisco 49ers' head coaching position before Jim Tomsula was hired on Wednesday. He also reportedly met with Broncos general manager John Elway on Wednesday morning.

With Peyton Manning at quarterback and Gase at coordinator, the Broncos finished No. 2 in scoring and No. 4 in yards this season.

The Falcons fired head coach Mike Smith after finishing 6-10 and missing the playoffs for the second year in a row. The Falcons finished No. 11 in scoring and No. 8 in yards this season under offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.

Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is reportedly the favorite to become the team's next head coach. Rapoport also reports, however, that Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin will receive a second interview.
