Just a couple days after it was reported that Gary Kubiak would become the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator, both sides have agreed to part ways.
Looks like the back-to-back Super Bowl winning offensive coordinator and Super Bowl 50 head coach will not be leading the offense this season. The Denver Broncos and Gary Kubiak have ultimately decided against the long time Broncos coach heading the offense this season.
The thought was in two parts. The first part was that Denver and Kubiak did not agree on offensive schemes and concepts. Second part of it was that Kubiak wanted to bring back Rick Dennison, who was the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator during the team’s Super Bowl 50 win. In the two years with Dennison as the offensive coordinator, the Denver Broncos offense struggled.
When Kubiak stepped down as head coach following the 2016 season, the new coaching staff decided not to bring Rick Dennison back. It is very interesting that Gary Kubiak wanted Rick Dennison, as well as Brian Pariani, on the staff when the offense with those two men struggled.
As far as the offensive coordinator position is involved, the Denver Broncos will start looking for a candidate. The only coordinator position that is filled is special teams as Fangio will likely keep Tom McMahon.
It also remains to be seen if Fangio will assume the role of head coach and defensive coordinator. But it appears as if the search to put the coaching staff together took a bit of a snag.
It is a shame that Gary Kubiak will not be sticking around, but it cold be for the best as the Broncos are looking to move forward. I am wishing Gary Kubiak the best in his future endeavors.
