Gary Kubiak reportedly backs out of Denver OC job
After it looked like a foregone conclusion, Gary Kubiak reportedly will not be the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kubiak and the Broncos could not agree on offensive philosophies or staffing, and the two sides have elected to go in different directions.
Assistant shocker: 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.

Kubiak as Denver’s offensive coordinator appeared to be such a foregone conclusion that they weren’t letting him interview elsewhere earlier in the offseason. After bringing in Vic Fangio as head coach, though, things have apparently fallen apart here.
In a move that may well be connected, the Broncos were linked to Pittsburgh offensive line coach Mike Munchak in some sort of offensive assistant role that could be as a coordinator.
#Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak is among the best at what he does, and Denver had him in the final 2 for their HC interviews. Possibly adding both Munchak and Vic Fangio would be quite a coup for the #Broncos… and clearly a rough loss for Pittsburgh.

Add the Broncos to the list of teams seeking an offensive coordinator after this abrupt shift.
