In a shocker that not a lot of people saw coming, the Broncos will not be giving the offensive coordinator job to former head coach and senior advisor Gary Kubiak.
ESPN first reported the news that Kubiak, who was the Broncos coach for their last Super Bowl, is not going to take the role on the offense.
Adam Schefter tweeted the following about the situation earlier Friday:
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.
GM John Elway had stated that Kubiak and new head coach Vic Fangio met about a bigger role on the coaching side for Kubiak, but obviously there was not a fit.
For now Kubiak remains under contract with the Broncos on the personnel side of the organization and any interested team would need to be granted permission to interview him.
