Assistant shocker: Gary Kubiak will not be Denver’s offensive coordinator, league sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 11, 2019
After lengthy discussions, Denver and Kubiak had different ideas on staffing and offensive philosophies. Both sides going in different directions.
The announcement of Kubiak returning to Denver as the offensive coordinator was met with praise around the league when news broke Wednesday.
Fangio/ Kubiak is a very, very good combo. https://t.co/7f3DJpXdiM— Ted Nguyen (@FB_FilmAnalysis) January 9, 2019
Kubiak's zone-run scheme seemed like a perfect fit, much in the way his offense fit seventh-round pick Justin Forsett in Baltimore.
Emmanuel Sanders, one of the few remaining players from Kubiak's time as head coach seemed ecstatic about having the 57-year-old coach back with the organization.
We'll have to see who new head coach Vic Fangio decides to go with in place of Kubiak as more news comes out. Perhaps the Broncos are looking for one of the younger in-vogue offensive coaches to pair with the older Fangio.
