Many teams are unsure if Gase’s success is legitimate or just a product of an offense led by QB Peyton Manning.

The Denver Broncos have reportedly held unofficial interviews with their offensive coordinator Adam Gase to fill their head coaching vacancy.
In two seasons as the Broncos offensive coordinator the team has finished with a top two offense both times. In 2013 the Broncos broke every major offensive record in NFL history, becoming the first team to ever record over 600 points in a season while MVP QB Peyton Manning also broke nearly every passing record. In 2014 the team only slightly regressed, finishing No. 4 in yards and No. 2 in points scored.
There is much speculation as to whether Gase’s success was the result of his own offensive genius or the all-worldly ability of Peyton Manning, who has been the Broncos QB for three seasons. But many people say Gase was a great offensive mind even before Manning came to the Broncos in 2012.
Gase has already met with the San Francisco 49ers about their vacancy at the same position, no deal has been agreed on, giving the Broncos all the opportunities in the world to talk to Gase.
Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak have also been mentioned as candidates for the job, although Kubiak has said he’s staying in Baltimore. The Broncos can’t speak to Quinn until the Seahawks season is over – which will not be until either after this weekend or after the Superbowl.
Gase previously served as QBs coach with the Detroit Lions in 2007 and the Broncos in 2011, was an offensive assistant with the 49ers back in 2008, and was the Broncos WRs coach in 2009 and 2010.
