Gary Kubiak steps down: here's one Bronco fan's wish list for a new coach
Denver should be an appealing destination for nearly any coach. Here’s what we’d like to see.
The speculation has swirled for a couple days, and this morning Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak made it official: he’s resigning.
Gary Kubiak has stepped down as the head coach of the Denver Broncos, the team announced Monday morning.
The announcement comes a day after Kubiak told his team he was stepping down for health reasons following the Broncos’ 24-6 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Kubiak had spent a night in the hospital after the Broncos’ Oct. 9 loss to the Atlanta Falcons and left the stadium that night in an ambulance. He was diagnosed with a “complex migraine condition” and was away from the team for a week after his hospital stay and did not coach the team in its Oct. 13 game in San Diego.
Kubiak has said multiple times since then that he was trying to improve his sleep habits and has consistently deflected health questions in the weeks that followed.
He also suffered what was called a “mini-stroke” in 2014 when he was coach of the Houston Texans.
One would expect that the Donc front office (ie, John Elway) is already hard at work identifying potential replacement candidates. As a dedicated Denver fan, here’s what I’d like to see in a new coach:
- Not Chip Kelly
- Not John Fox
- Not Josh McDaniel
- Not Rex Ryan
- Not Mike McCoy
- Maybe Kyle Shanahan
- Not a college coach with no NFL experience
- And sweet fucking hell, NOT JEFF “7-9 BULLSHIT” FISHER
There you go, Elway. I’ve narrowed it down for you. You get paid the huge bucks, so you can surely take it from here.
