The Philadelphia Eagles are planning a second interview with Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase for their vacant head coaching position.

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Gase's first interview went so well that a second interview is scheduled this weekend.

The Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins and New York Giants also reportedly have asked the Bears for permission to speak with Gase.

Gase, 37, would become the NFL's youngest head coach if hired.

During his one season in Chicago, Gase drew praise for turning the fortunes of enigmatic quarterback Jay Cutler.

From 2009-14, Gase was on the Denver Broncos' staff, spending two years as wide receivers coach, two years as quarterbacks coach and 2013 and 2014 as the offensive coordinator.
