Broncos finalized a four-year contract with Gary Kubiak to become their head coach.
It's a homecoming for Kubiak, who played for the Broncos from 1983-91 and was an assistant coach under Mike Shanahan there from 1995-05. Kubiak coached current Broncos boss John Elway during the first four years of that stint. He'll bring the Shanahan offense back to Denver, which means a consistently effective one-cut run scheme (hello, C.J. Anderson) and an "X" receiver that gets peppered with targets (hello, Demaryius Thomas). On Kubiak's watch, the 2014 Ravens set a franchise record in offensive yards per game (364.9), scored roughly a touchdown more per game than they did in 2013 and Justin Forsett came out of nowhere to finish as fantasy's No. 8 RB. Of course, the biggest moving part here is Peyton Manning. Although Kubiak reportedly wasn't interested in Manning three years ago in Houston, we suspect he'll want Peyton over Brock Osweiler this time around -- even if he has to change his scheme a bit.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ravens OC Gary Kubiak intends to take the Broncos' head-coaching job if it's offered to him.

This has been the feeling around the league, and it's been crystal-clear to everyone. GM John Elway has been poking around other candidates, though some have even canceled interviews because they see the writing on the wall with Kubiak. Elway and Kubiak are very close. Kubiak coached Elway in the late 1990s.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Ravens "expect" OC Gary Kubiak to be named the Broncos' next head coach.

Kubiak is interviewing with the team on Sunday. Per Werder, coach John Harbaugh would be "understanding" if Kubiak went back on his word to remain in Baltimore. Harbaugh appears sympathetic to Denver being a special opportunity for Kubiak, who both played and coordinated in the Rockies. Doug Marrone has reportedly canceled his Broncos interview, which is another sign GM John Elway is zeroing in on Kubiak as his man.

Ravens OC Gary Kubiak will interview for the Broncos' head-coaching vacancy this weekend.

After shooting down head-coaching inquiries from the Bears and Jets, Kubiak has decided to take an interview for the recently-opened Broncos vacancy. Kubiak spent all nine seasons of his playing career in Denver and then was on Mike Shanahan's coaching staff as QBs coach and OC for 11 years. A Shanahan pupil, Kubiak runs the same offense. He coached GM John Elway and is said to be "far and away" Elway's top choice.

The Broncos will seek permission to interview Ravens OC Gary Kubiak for their head coaching vacancy.

Kubiak announced Sunday that he would be staying with the Ravens as their offensive coordinator for 2015. But perhaps he could be swayed by the vast talent in Denver and a chance to go back to his roots. Kubiak played for the Broncos from 1983-91 and was an assistant coach there from 1995-05.

Ravens OC Gary Kubiak announced late Sunday that he will be staying with Baltimore for the 2015 season.

He's turning down head-coaching inquiries after receiving them from the Jets, 49ers, and most strongly from the Bears. "This is a special organization and we, like [Head] Coach [John] Harbaugh says, are building something great," Kubiak stated. "I want to be a part of that and contribute in whatever ways I can." Kubiak's return is good news for Joe Flacco and whomever plays running back for the Ravens. (Justin Forsett is a free agent.) On Kubiak's watch, the 2014 Ravens set a franchise record in offensive yards per game (364.9) and scored roughly a touchdown more per game than they did in 2013.
Jan 11 - 10:28 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears are expected to make a "major push" for Ravens OC Gary Kubiak as their head coach.

Now that the Ravens are eliminated from the playoffs, Kubiak can start doing interviews. However, it's unclear if he's even interested in becoming a head coach after a successful year as the Ravens' offensive play-caller. Joe Flacco set career-highs in passing yards and touchdowns under Kubiak this season. It'd be a positive hire for Jay Cutler. Kubiak runs the Shanahan offense that Cutler thrived in with Denver. The Jets are also said to be interested in Kubiak.
Jan 11 - 11:09 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports people close to Gary Kubiak say he may not be interested in a head coaching job this offseason.

Rapoport says Kubiak "isn't looking to move" and "loves" being with the Ravens. All of that may be true, but Kubiak would likely find it hard to resist another shot at a head coaching job. Kubiak will not be able to interview until after the Ravens' playoff run is complete.
Jan 10 - 12:16 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects Ravens OC Gary Kubiak to draw head-coaching interest from the Jets and 49ers.

Kubiak is not able to interview for any positions until the Ravens are eliminated from the playoffs. Kubiak dramatically improved the Ravens' offense in his first year as offensive coordinator, coaxing a career year out of Joe Flacco and leading an offense that scored the eighth most points in the league. Kubiak owned a 61-64 record with two playoff appearances as the Texans' head coach from 2006-13.
Jan 3 - 1:04 PM

Bleacher Report's Dan Pompei reports the Bears are interested in Ravens OC Gary Kubiak for their head-coaching vacancy.

Chicago is also interested in Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta for their general-manager opening. That'll be the tougher one to pull off, but a Kubiak-DeCosta duo would be a good get for the Bears. Kubiak appears to have successfully rehabbed his value after just one year as Ravens' offensive play-caller. He was fired as the Texans' head coach last December. Joe Flacco set new career-highs in passing yards and touchdowns under Kubiak this season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets have requested to interview Ravens OC Gary Kubiak, Chargers OC Frank Reich, and Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable for their head-coaching vacancy.

That's in addition to usual suspects Seahawks DC Dan Quinn and Cardinals DC Todd Bowles. It's the first we've seen Kubiak, Reich, and Cable linked to head-coaching openings. Kubiak won't be available to interview until the Ravens are eliminated from the playoffs. With the Seahawks on a bye this week, Cable's interview will take place over the weekend. Reich is free to conduct interviews at any time. Unlike Quinn and Bowles, Kubiak, Reich, and Cable all have offensive backgrounds. Cable would be an interesting hire.

Ravens hired Gary Kubiak as offensive coordinator.

It's a strong hire for one of the NFL's top coaching staff-front office combinations. Kubiak is bringing along Rick Dennison from Houston as quarterbacks coach. A run-first mind, Kubiak employs a Shanahanian zone-blocking scheme and will likely scale back Joe Flacco's pass attempts dramatically after he set a career high with over 600 in 2013. The Ravens need to upgrade their up-front talent and potentially shake up their running back corps. It's worth noting Bernard Pierce drew Arian Foster comparisons coming out of Temple two years ago. A la Owen Daniels/Garrett Graham, look for Dennis Pitta's red-zone opportunities to increase, assuming the Ravens re-sign him.

Gary Kubiak has reportedly emerged as the favorite for the Ravens' offensive coordinator job.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Ravens are trying to assemble a "star-studded" offensive coaching staff that includes Kubiak, Rick Dennison and Kyle Shanahan. That trio worked together in Houston from 2006 until Shanny left in 2010, producing rapid results. The Texans were 28th in offense in 2006, 14th in 2007, 3rd in 2008 and 4th in 2009. In-house wide receivers coach Jim Hostler is the other remaining known candidate besides Kubiak.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports "it is considered unlikely" that the Browns will hire Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator.

Kubiak is apparently leaning toward taking a year off, because offensive coordinator vacancies around the league are drying up fast. Cleveland just hired Mike Pettine as head coach on Thursday, so to expect a next-day coordinator hire would be unrealistic. NFL Network reported early Friday that the Browns have "interest" in Kubiak, but no interview has been scheduled yet.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are interested in ex-Texans coach Gary Kubiak for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

New coach Mike Pettine and Kubiak have never worked together in the past. As RapSheet points out, Kubiak's fit in Cleveland would make some sense considering the Browns have repeatedly been linked to Texans free-agent running back Ben Tate. Kubiak's addition would be welcome news to Josh Gordon, as well. Andre Johnson was force-fed the ball in Houston.
