Gary Kubiak surprisingly won't become the Broncos' next offensive coordinator

According to ESPN, the Broncos and recently appointed offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak had an impasse in philosophies and a mutual change of heart.

The two sides were widely expected to reach a deal for Kubiak to run the offense under Vic Fangio.

Kubiak was Denver's head coach when the team won Super Bowl 50 in February 2016 before stepping down from the position. Kubiak was considered a top candidate for the job, but the Falcons hired Dirk Koetter on Tuesday. After one year away from football, Kubiak returned to the Broncos as an executive in 2017.

AMD shares more Radeon VII details
I would expect to see Navi unveiled just before or during Computex 2019 and priced lower than Radeon VII (which costs $699). Under the hood, it's still the same Vega architecture that led to the disappointing reception of RX Vega 64 and Vega 56.

Kubiak's zone-run scheme seemed like a flawless fit, much in the way his offense fit seventh-round pick Justin Forsett in Baltimore. At the time, Schefter reported that the Broncos wanted Kubiak to work with their next coach and that Kubiak wanted to remain in Denver.

In a move that may well be connected, the Broncos were linked to Pittsburgh offensive line coach Mike Munchak in some sort of offensive assistant role that could be as a coordinator.

"If Gary is interested, then I'm interested", Fangio said at his introductory press conference on Thursday, per The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala‏.
