As expected, the Denver Broncos are looking for a new head coach.
The team announced this morning that Gary Kubiak has stepped down after two seasons at the helm. The 55-year-old Kubiak, who dealt with health issues during the year, admitted “the demands of the job are no longer a good fit for me” in a statement on the Broncos’ official website.
The statement read in part:
“As I told our team last night, this is an extremely difficult decision to step down as head coach. I love to work and I love football, but ultimately the demands of the job are no longer a good fit for me.“I gave everything I had to this team the last two seasons, but this year, in particular, has been tough on me. As hard as it is to leave this position, I know that it’s the best thing for myself, my family and the Denver Broncos.”
Kubiak led the Broncos to a 21-11 regular season mark in two seasons, winning the Super Bowl last year. He coached the Houston Texans to a 61-64 record from 2006-2013, reaching the playoffs twice. He served as the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator in 2014.
Kubiak played for the Broncos from 1983-1991 and also served as the team’s offensive coordinator from 1995-2005.
