The Broncos' head coaching search hit the road Sunday as John Elway, Denver's Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager, and Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis went to meet with former Broncos and current Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak in his hometown of Houston, Texas.
Kubiak is no stranger to Broncos Country and is especially familiar with Elway, whom he played alongside for the Broncos from 1983 to 1991.
After beginning his coaching career with the 49ers in 1994, Kubiak returned to Denver as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator from 1995 to 2005. During his time as a coach in Denver, the Broncos won two Super Bowls and went to the playoffs in seven of 11 seasons.
From there, Kubiak went back to his hometown to coach the Texans as their second head coach after Dom Capers' four year stint. Kubiak eventually helped the team get their first winning season in 2009 before leading them to back-to-back playoff appearances in 2011 and 2012 with wins each year in the Wild Card round before falling in the Divisional rounds.
Then in 2014, Kubiak became the Ravens' offensive coordinator. The Ravens were ninth in the league in yards per play and eighth in points per game.
