Gary Kubiak To Accept Broncos Job If Offered

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will take the Broncos‘ head coaching job if it is offered to him, and all signs points towards GM John Elway making that offer. Mike Klis of the Denver Post writes that Elway and Kubiak will spend this Sunday together watching the AFC and NFC Championship Games, and although there are some concerns with how Kubiak’s schemes will mesh with Peyton Manning‘s abilities–Kubiak’s passing game is largely predicated on play-action bootleg passes, which is not a great fit for the increasingly immobile Manning–Kubiak has been Elway’s top target for a long time.

As’s Ian Rapoport tweets, other candidates for Denver’s top job who met with Elway were so convinced that Kubiak was Elway’s preference that they withdrew their names from consideration, and CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora tweets that Kubiak’s move to Denver has been a foregone conclusion for several days now. Klis adds in his piece that a formal announcement will be made by Tuesday.
