Report: Broncos HC Gary Kubiak To Step Down Amid Health Concerns

Gary Kubiak is reportedly likely stepping down as the head coach of the Denver Broncos.

After just two years with the team, head coach Gary Kubiak is likely stepping down as the Broncos head coach. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Kubiak's family wanted the coach to retire due to health concerns.

That would make today's game against the Oakland Raiders Kubiak's last game as the head coach of Denver. In his first season with the team, Kubiak led the Broncos to a Super Bowl title.

Yet, this year has not gone as planned. The Broncos missed the playoffs, and could end the season with a .500 record.

Kubiak, 55, was forced to miss a Thursday Night game in October due to what the Broncos organization called a "complex migraine condition." According to Adam Schefter, Kubiak suffered a "mini-stroke" in 2013 while the head coach of the Houston Texans and had to be rushed to the hospital.

If Kubiak steps away from the NFL, he'll finish with an 81-75 record in the regular season and a 5-2 record in the playoffs.
