Interesting note about Gase/Manning in ESPN Browns story Dan Leberfeld

ESPN reporter Seth Wickersham has a fascinating piece on the channel’s website about the struggles of the Cleveland Browns’ organization.

It’s no secret the Browns, under owner Jimmy Haslam, have made a lot of coaching changes.

Buried in the middle of this long piece, Wickersham mentioned that at one point, Peyton Manning recommended Adam Gase to Haslam for the Browns’ job.

“(Peyton) Manning raved to Haslam about then-Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase,” wrote Wickersham.

Sound familiar?

Manning made the same recommendation to the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets, who both hired Gase to be their head coach.
