    Don't be surprised if the Cleveland Browns are the last team standing in this winter's coaching hunt.

    NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport tweeted Monday night that Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase looms as a leading candidate for the job, while Mike Klis of The Denver Post reported the Browns will, indeed, delay their decision until they speak with the play-caller. Klis was told that Gase, who turned down requests from Cleveland and the Minnesota Vikings earlier this month, likely would accept an interview after the playoffs.

    Determined to interview Gase, the Browns' front office is a good bet to wait around until Denver's postseason voyage ends before deciding on a replacement for the fired Rob Chudzinski.

    Incidentally, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is close with Jimmy Haslam due to their Tennessee ties, and the Browns owner certainly has his hands in the mix this time around.
