Elway: ‘Studly’ of Gase to Keep Focus on Broncos

Posted Jan 16, 2014

Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway praised Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase’s decision to not take any head-coaching interviews until after the Broncos’ season.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo – As head coaching positions opened up around the league following the conclusion of the regular season, Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase’s name popped up as a potential candidate.

But when Gase was asked to interview, he postponed that opportunity until the end of the Broncos’ season.

That’s something that Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway appreciated.

“For him to be able to do what he did and to say ‘I want to keep my focus on the Denver Broncos and once our season is over I’ll interview,' to me that was studly,” Elway said. “I like guys that are committed to what they’re doing, committed to the Denver Broncos. So I couldn’t be more proud of that decision. It tells you a lot about the guy.”

Gase said that the decision was made in order to keep his focus on the task at hand in Denver.

“For me, I just felt like I was all in for what we were doing here,” Gase said. “I just didn’t want to stand in front of players and say one thing and do something else. So I felt like it was the most important thing for what we needed to do for this team.”

The first-year offensive coordinator has helped engineer an offense that put up all sorts of franchise and league records in 2013.

While it shouldn’t come as a surprise that other teams were interested in hiring him, it also shouldn’t be a surprise that Elway hopes that the Broncos are able to retain him.

“He’s done a tremendous job,” Elway said. “He’s had a great year and he’s just got such a great feel, and he’s a hard worker and he’s very bright. I hope he stays.”
