Now that Mike McCoy left the Broncos to become the Chargers’ head coach, Denver has promoted Adam Gase from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator, per the Denver Post. Gase, 34, becomes one of the NFL’s youngest offensive coordinators but he has considerable NFL experience. He got his start with the Detroit Lions in 2005 and was hired by the Broncos as receivers coach in 2009. More importantly, he worked countless hours with Manning during the 2012 season.

The team also considered Ken Whisenhunt and Pat Shurmur for the position, but continuity won out over previous coordinator experience.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI =...
