The Denver Broncos announced on Tuesday that former Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak would join the team as a senior personnel advisor.
Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway said in the press release that Kubiak would “primarily help on the college side and assist us in free agency as well”.
“With as much experience as he has evaluating players, Gary’s going to be a tremendous resource for our personnel department,” Elway said. “He’ll primarily help on the college side and assist us in free agency as well.
Kubiak will be based at his home in Texas but make a handful of appearances at Dove Valley throughout the year. Kubiak’s son Klien Kubiak serves as a southwest area scout for the Broncos as well.
In the press release released by the Broncos, Kubiak said it was “an honor to continue to be a part of this great organization”.
“It’s an honor for me to continue to be part of this great organization,” Kubiak said. “John and I talked long ago about any opportunity like this, and I’m very happy to be able to contribute on the personnel side. I said when I left that I still wanted to be involved in football. This gives me an opportunity to be involved with the game, and I’m excited to get to work.”
Mile High Sports Benjamin Allbright gave some more insight on what exactly Kubiak will be doing for the Broncos.
Told Kubiak will be cross check on on the offensive players on the #Broncos draft board.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) July 25, 2017
Kubiak has been an offensive mastermind throughout most of his career, so having him cross checking offensive prospects on the Broncos draft board should be a valuable asset.
It has been an exciting past 24 hours for the Denver Broncos and Broncos Country. First, we had the announcement of John Elway being locked up for another five years followed by Kubiak rejoining the organization in an advising role. All pretty exciting and the Broncos hit the field for the first time in 48 hours.
Broncos football is back.
