When the Broncos hired Vic Fangio to be their next head coach earlier this week, it was widely assumed that Gary Kubiak would become the team's offensive coordinator. With Fangio running the defense and Kubiak calling the shots on offense, the Broncos' new coaching staff appeared to be in place.
It turns out, though, Kubiak will not be joining Fangio's staff. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, due to differing opinions on staffing and offensive philosophy, Kubiak will not be the Broncos' next offensive coordinator.
The Denver Broncos are bracing for the prospect of losing Gary Kubiak entirely.
After opting out of the Broncos' offensive coordinator job, citing philosophical differences, Kubiak has drawn abundant interest around the NFL. One potential landing spot is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who'd like to interview the 58-year-old for their play-calling vacancy.
Plenty of teams are intrigued by the idea of tapping Kubiak as OC. The Falcons and Bengals previously requested (and were denied) interviews; Atlanta settled on Steve Sarkisian while Cincinnati hired offensive-minded Zac Taylor to be the head coach
