Gary Kubiak just can’t stay away from football.
After stepping down as Denver Broncos head coach due to health concerns in January, Kubiak has been hired by the club as a senior personnel executive in the scouting department, a source told Mike Klis of 9News.
Kubiak will be primarily based out of his home near Houston and is expected to help evaluate college prospects as well as contribute to the Broncos’ free agency plans.
Though coaching proved to be too harsh of a lifestyle for Kubiak’s health, he indicated at his press conference in January that he would stay connected to the game.
“I’m getting out of coaching, but I have a lot to give,” Kubiak said Jan. 2. “I’m going to find something else to do and I’m going to wake up with that same passion and do that, just like I’ve coached for the last 20-something years.”
Kubiak coached the Broncos for two seasons, winning Super Bowl 50 in 2015, and played for the team as John Elway’s backup from 1983 to 1991.
