John Elway loves how 35-year-old offensive coordinator Adam Gase kept Denver's high-octane offense floored all season but quickly put the brakes on his own football future with the Broncos in the midst of a Super Bowl run.

The Broncos' executive vice president said Thursday that he hopes Gase stays in Denver beyond this season even though he granted requests from other teams to interview his hot-shot assistant for their head coaching vacancies.

Gase told both the Vikings and Browns that he wouldn't interview until after the Broncos' season is over.

The Vikings have since hired Mike Zimmer as their head coach, although the Browns appear to be waiting to interview Gase, whose aggressive approach helped the Broncos score an NFL record 606 points this season.
