Contrary to expectations, Gary Kubiak will not be Broncos’ offensive coordinator
Gary Kubiak will not return to the Denver Broncos’ think tank after all.
According to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN, Kubiak and the Broncos have different visions for the team, thus apparently causing talks between the two sides for a potential partnership to completely fall apart.
Assistant shocker: Gary Kubiak will not be Denver’s offensive coordinator, league sources tell ESPN. After lengthy discussions, Denver and Kubiak had different ideas on staffing and offensive philosophies. Both sides going in different directions.
After the Broncos hired Vic Fangio as the franchise’s new head coach a couple of days ago, the expectation was that Kubiak will be taking his talents back to Denver, though, what exactly his role would be for the team remained cloudy until this recent report by Schefter.
For now, the Broncos will restart their search again for a new offensive coordinator – unless they ultimately decide to keep Bill Musgrave, who was presumably on his way out with rumors of Kubiak going back to Denver.
Kubiak was the Broncos’ head coach for two seasons from 2015 to 2016 before retiring at the end of the 2016 campaign.
Denver did not have one of the most high-flying offenses in the league in 2018, as it finished the regular season ranked just 24th in the NFL with 20.6 points per game average and 18th in total offense with 350.1 total yards per contest.
