12:44 PM ET 01.18 | After giving Rob Chudzinski the boot, the Browns' coaching disaster continues, but the light at the end of their tunnel has always been Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Throughout the process, it appeared that Gase was the one guy they were waiting to interview, and in the process they lost out on Ben McAdoo, Josh McDaniels, Todd Bowles and the countless other candidates who either got hired somewhere else or withdrew their names from the Browns' search. Now reports have surfaced that Gase is 'inclined' to return to the Broncos in 2014 and kindly reject the Browns head coaching job, something that would detonate the nuclear bomb that Joe Banner and Jimmy Haslam are sitting on. For outside observers, this situation in Cleveland keeps getting more and more hilariously embarrassing. For Browns fans, time continues to stand still; it might as well be 1997 when the team still did not even exist.

Wow. If Gase turns them down, Lombardi and Banner have to be fired immediately.

Sometimes the payback is even more entertaining than the original action.

Something really stinky going on there

Being Peyton Manning's OC > Being the Browns HC.

As long as Manning plays for Denver, being the OC is one of the better gigs in the league.

The Browns stunk it up by firing Chudzinski after a single season. Coaches are basically a fraternity, and they are very aware of what happened to one of their own. Each candidate that says "no thanks" drives that point in a little further.

Hacking is such a negative term.

I think what you were trying to say is that FN is "actualizing the monetization potential of it's site by providing a rich environment for presenting products of interest to a viewing audience who share common interests."

No one wants to coach in Cleveland. Call it the Lebron Syndrome. Explains why they line up to work in Buffalo.

The Browns are the end of the line!

Wow ! Way to dazzle with BS! You sir have a way with words!

I still think the Browns are targeting Greg Roman. He's done a great job developing Luck and Kap and his offense puts up points using every tool they have. If the Browns could come away with a solid QB in this draft he would have plenty of tools to make it work in Cleveland.
Gase is just a product of his environment and when your environment includes Manning you tend to have a very good product!

When I read people saying that nobody wants to coach in Cleveland it makes me laugh! There are only 32 HC positions available and the Browns job is still more attractive then most. They have 5 pro bowlers on their roster and have enough picks in this draft and a ton of cap space to complete their roster!

You're correct: They have personnel on board that are young and talented, and a boat load of high draft picks.

But the front office makes it now worse than Oakland as the place least appealing for a HC position.

It all comes down to what teams are willing to pay a head coach... Most coaches follow the money trail...

Yep. Dallas comes to mind.

Maybe the Browns could offer discount gas discounts at Flying J.

At this rate, they'll probably find their next coach at a Flying J.

There will be better opportunities down the road for Gase. Cleveland appears to be a veritable wasteland for head coaches.
