Denver Broncos: Gary Kubiak emerges as OC candidate
Gary Kubiak stepped down as the Broncos head coach for health reasons. But the Super Bowl 50 winner has emerged as an offensive coordinator candidate.
Gary Kubiak was the Denver Broncos head coach for only two seasons. But he stepped down one year after winning Super Bowl 50 to focus on his health. It was amazing to see him lead the Broncos in his first year to the Super Bowl.
He has since taken time away from coaching, He currently helps the Broncos as a Senior Personnel Adviser and third in command with player personnel.
It appears that he is ready to get back into coaching, granted in a lesser role than head coach. According to Ian Rapoport, Kubiak has emerged as an candidate for an offensive coordinator position.
The Denver Broncos are currently with Vance Joseph and Bill Musgrave as the head coach and offensive coordinator. It is believed there could be some changes for the Broncos if they end up missing the playoffs and/or with a losing record.
If things do not change, there is a strong possibility that Vance Joseph will be given the pink slip at the end of the year. A head coaching candidate that has surfaced for the Broncos, if that happens, is current Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
That pairing of Harbaugh and Kubiak would be like living in a dream. Both men are Super Bowl champion coaches. And they both have a history of working together. Kubiak was the offensive coordinator for Harbaugh in Baltimore for the 2014 season.
I believe with both of these men, especially Gary Kubiak, the Broncos can get right back on track. Two offensive minded coaches with a history of winning sounds like a solid combination in my books.
There is a possibility of other teams expressing interest in Kubiak. But I believe the odds would be in the Denver Broncos favor if Kubiak were to make his return to coaching.
