Eagles coach rumors: Adam Gase NOT scheduled for a second interview in Philadelphia

New, comments

Well, this is interesting.

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday, NFL Network reported that the Philadelphia Eagles scheduled a second interview with Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Now that report is being disputed. Reuben Frank of CSN Philly says there is no second interview scheduled. Per his report:

Contrary to a published report, the Eagles have not scheduled a second interview with Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase for their head coaching vacancy, according to a league source familiar with the Eagles' thinking. NFL Network reported Wednesday that the Eagles were so impressed with Gase after his first interview that they had already scheduled a second interview with him.

But the source said no second interview has been planned yet with any candidate. He said this doesn’t mean the Eagles weren’t impressed with Gase or they don’t consider him a good candidate. It just means they are planning to go through the process and interview several candidates once before regrouping – probably at the end of next week – and determining who to place on a short list of candidates for second interviews.

Assuming Roob's report is correct, the original report of Gase's second interview could have been leaked from his agent in order to help his client. Gase's agent has already seemingly leaked a report about how the Dolphins might try to hire Gase before the Eagles can. Such a report would be an attempt to create a more competitive market for Gase's services.

As Roob notes, just because Gase might not have a second interview this weekend doesn't mean he won't eventually get one. In the meantime, the Eagles are set to interview Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson this weekend.

Gase is set to meet with the New York Giants on Friday after meeting with the Dolphins on Thursday.
