Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Sunday that Denver Broncos Senior Personnel Advisor, Gary Kubiak, is considering a return to coaching in 2019 as an Offensive Coordinator.

Sources say several potential head-coaching candidates view Kubiak as a viable possibility for an offensive coordinator post, an opportunity the Broncos do believe he’ll consider.

The desire to coach is still there with Gary Kubiak despite multiple health issues while head coach of both the Houston Texans and Broncos. Sources with the Broncos are aware of this interest and appear to support it according to Rapoport.

Kubiak has served for the last two years as a senior personnel adviser with the Broncos, and sources say the team has nothing but respect for the job Kubiak has done for the organization.

They understand this development and believe this is something Kubiak will look into if offered anything.

As a fan, I am more troubled by this than happy about it. Kubiak seemed to provide a stabilizing effect on the Broncos draft strategy as the 2018 NFL Draft class appears to be one of the best ever through nine games.

One possibility, that kind of appeals to me, is one where the Broncos land John Harbaugh who then, in turn, hires Gary Kubiak as coordinator. The two shared great success in 2014 when the Baltimore Ravens finished 9th in yards per play, 8th in yards per pass attempt, and 7th in yards per rush attempt.

What do you think of this development?
