A fourth team has joined the Adam Gase sweepstakes.

A day after announcing the departure of longtime coach Tom Coughlin, the New York Giants have requested to interview Gase.

If its request is granted, New York will be the fourth team to interview the Bears offensive coordinator.

Gase interviewed with Philadelphia on Tuesday, and is scheduled to meet with the Browns on Wednesday and Dolphins on Thursday, according to a previous Sun-Times report.

NFL rules require teams searching for a head coach to interview at least one minority candidate before making a hire.

The Eagles met that requirement on Friday by interviewing running backs coach Duce Staley, though according to a report from Bleacher Report, the NFL believes the interview may have been an attempt to skirt the rule – putting Philadelphia in the best position to make the first hire.

As teams line up to interview Gase, it appears more and more likely Chicago will lose an assistant to an NFL coaching job for the first time since 1986.

“We wish him nothing but the best,” Bears coach John Fox said of Gase, via CBS. “He’s done a great, great job here.”

Bears coordinators rarely get hired away to be NFL head coaches
