John Elway says Gary Kubiak could serve in coaching role in 2019
The Denver Broncos will be revamping their coaching staff this offseason after head coach Vance Joseph was fired on Monday, and the rumors that Gary Kubiak could be part of that staff going forward apparently have merit.
While speaking with reporters shortly after Joseph was dismissed, Broncos president of football operations John Elway left open the possibility that Kubiak could join the coaching staff.
John Elway told me he expects Gary Kubiak to be a part of the Broncos in 2019. Added that there is a possibility that Gary will coach again or in the same role. Said “Gary will be around.”
His name has been discussed around the league as an OC.

Kubiak spent two seasons as the head coach in Denver, leading the team to a Super Bowl title in 2015 and a 9-7 record in 2016. He was also the offensive coordinator for the Broncos earlier in his coaching career from 2003-2005. He cited health reasons when he stepped down as the head coach in Denver following the 2016 season.
Since he stepped down as head coach, Kubiak has been serving in an advisory role with the Broncos’ front office. While he does not want the responsibility and pressure of being a head coach again, the 57-year-old is said to be interested in calling plays.
