Kubiak statement says he’s better, plans to return to team next Monday


Broncos Coach Gary Kubiak released a statement through the team Monday night, a few hours after being released from a local hospital.

The team had previously announced that Kubiak was feeling better after dealing with “a complex migraine condition” and that special teams coach Joe DeCamillis will serve as the interim head coach this week. The Broncos play Thursday night in San Diego.

“I’m feeling much better and am thankful for everyone’s thoughts and well-wishes,” Kubiak’s statement said. “It’s tough not being there with our team this week, but I’ve got great confidence in Joe D, our coordinators and coaching staff, and all of our players.

“[Broncos Head Trainer Steve Antonopulos] and the medical team did an outstanding job taking care of me and getting this figured out. I’ve made a lot of positive changes health-wise in recent years and will continue to listen to doctors.

“I’ll be at home this week, resting and getting healthy, and I look forward to rejoining our team on Monday.”

Kubiak collapsed at halftime of a 2013 game when he was head coach of the Texans. He suffered a mini-stroke and has previously said he’s been taking much better care of himself since then.
