The Cleveland Browns coaching search continues to be a factory of awkwardness. The Browns are the only team without a coach in place for the 2014 season, having fired Rob Chudzinski after a single season and failing to replace him with anyone yet. Their search took another blow Tuesday as Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase withdrew his name from consideration.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported last week that Gase was by far and away the Browns top candidate.

But Gase, who is just 35 years old, won't be their next head coach.

His intentions in pulling out of consideration, per Mike Klis of the Denver Post, is to focus on the Super Bowl.

Denver's slated to play the Seahawks, who feature another one of the Browns top candidates in defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

It's not hard to blame Gase for staying put either. Cleveland fired their coach after one year. Winning there is difficult and there's no quarterback in place. The Broncos are about to play for the Super Bowl. Gase works with Peyton Manning and he's as hot a name as there is in football. If he's smart he'll keep parlaying his position into a cranked up rumor mill and his choice of jobs.
