Broncos reportedly believe Gary Kubiak will consider offensive coordinator opportunities

Gary Kubiak has worked in the Broncos personnel department since stepping down as their head coach after the 2016 season due to health issues, but he may be changing jobs this offseason.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that several head coaching candidates are interested in potentially having Kubiak on their staff as an offensive coordinator and that the Broncos believe Kubiak will consider any opportunities that arise. It’s thought that the health issues — similar ones cropped up while Kubiak was the head coach in Houston — would preclude a return to a head coaching job.

Kubiak served as the Ravens offensive coordinator in 2014 after he was dismissed by the Texans and before he was hired in Denver. He also had a stint as the Broncos offensive coordinator when Mike Shanahan was the team’s head coach.

Kubiak had an 82-75 record as a head coach and won the Super Bowl with the Broncos after the 2015 season.

  1. Kyle Shanahan needs to make this hire and focus all his resource as a HC. Kubiak knows this offense and coached under his father. Makes a lot of sense for the 49ers to make this coaching hire.

  2. Sorry man, Kubiak seems like a good guy… but proven to be a totally anemic OC.

    Most of us could be the Mike from home… watching his offense line up. Totally transparent and stoppable.

    Run… Run… short pass… Punt. Rinse and repeat all game long.

    Kubiak brought Denver to a 9-7 record with Trevor Siemian at QB. Not to mention, Joe Flacco’s best season was under this man’s play calling. I suggest doing a little more research before commenting…

    Maybe you should go watch every season he was coaching the Texans and see the robotic run, screen, bootleg, punt that was their offense. Sure, it worked for awhile, but I remeber people who casually watched football calling his plays from home. He is a goid coach in a lot of ways but let’s not pretend he had Manning when he won that Lombardi

  5. @DillonPauls… and the overall result was…???

    If that’s what you call success, please, by all means, enjoy all the 9-7 seasons you can digest.

    Research complete.

  6. @lowlifenebula1 – exactly the point. EVERYONE know what’s coming.

    ‘Flacco’ and ‘Siemian’ used as a QB success models? Please. That should go on ‘Cmon Man’.

  7. with the Texans Kubiak was the HC took them to 12-4 record the OC’s were Calhoun(Air Force Academy) Kyle Shanahan, Rick Dennison. It was the Kubiak/Shanahan offense that was highly successful in Denver. major problem there was McNair and Smith

  8. No I think using Siemien and Flaccid as sucess is points made. A 9-7 record in Denver w Trevor Siemian is abt as good as it gets. And Flaccid sucks and what Kubiak did w him was amazing. And as far as his time in Houston, they haven’t been better then that YET. LUCKILY you got a legitimate Qb there now along w some nice wrs and that Defense of course. Too bad you got O’Brien now. If you still had Kubiak you might be on the cusp of a Superbowl. But naaahh you got O’Brien so enjoy your 9-7, 10-6 wildcard round losses

  9. Would love to see the Cardinals go after him.

    Had success in Houston with Schaub, a good but not A list QB. Won a playoff game with TJ Yates. Worth a look.

  10. Kubiak is very similar to most offensive coaches in that he looks very good when he has a great QB. Folks, this isn’t nuclear science. The only coach I’ve ever seen win with ordinary QB’s is Joe Gibbs, and he won 3 super bowls with three different non-great QB’s. Denver is a pressure cooker for coaches, so although Kubiak isn’t well enough to coach in that environment, and few are, he’s plenty healthy enough to coach in a normal NFL organization. And if the team he goes to has an excellent QB, he’ll do an excellent job. If they have a bad QB, he’ll be in the unemployment line again.
