In a move everyone saw coming the Denver Broncos have announced that Gary Kubiak will become the team’s 15th head coach. Kubiak and the Broncos top brass are finalizing the details of a 4-year contract.

Kubiak has deep ties in Denver having played for and coached the Denver Broncos for nearly a combined 20 years. He is expected to make Rick Dennison his offensive coordinator.

Kubiak spent the last two seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens. This past season he helped Joe Flacco have his best statistical season as a pro throwing for 3,986 yards and 27 touchdowns.

The biggest question headed into the Kubiak era is whether or not Peyton Manning will return for his 18th season.
