Golden Nuggets: Coaching Decision Coming Soon?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

It's been weeks since Jim Harbaugh left the team and the Niners still have not named their head coach. With the Denver Broncos now eliminated, Adam Gase is available. According to reports, he seems to be 1st choice for the head coach position. The team had interviews with quite a few candidates. The team is taking its time interviewing every candidate they can.

If the Niners hired Adam Gase, they would have the offensive minded coach that they seem to be after. But, I don't know how good of an offensive coach he is. He did have one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game leading the offense. Peyton Manning seems to change the plays at the line of scrimmage every down. Is Gase's prominence to a candidate for a head coaching job because of Peyton? It seems we will find out soon.

If Gase is picked to be the coach, will he adjust his offense to Kap's skill set or will he make Kap adjust to his offense? He would be going from one of the best pocket passers to one with a completely different skill set. He will have to fix a receiving corps that had one of the worst hands in the NFL. He would also have to fix the red zone offense that had trouble scoring touchdowns. If he is indeed the coach, he will be responsible for Kap's development. I hope to see a multi-dimensional offense if he is indeed the coach. Let's light up Levi's Stadium's scoreboard next season.
