PRESIDENT AND CEO JOE ELLIS:**
"Gary has been part of the Broncos' family for two decades and has proven himself as a highly successful head coach and assistant coach around the NFL. From his time in Denver, he completely understands—and has contributed to—the culture of winning that has been established throughout Pat Bowlen's ownership. Gary also respects what the Broncos mean to this community and the special connection this team has with its fans.
"We are thrilled that Gary Kubiak is returning to Denver to become the next head coach of the Broncos."
EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS/GENERAL MANAGER JOHN ELWAY:
"Gary Kubiak has established a track record of leadership, success and high character during his 30 seasons in the NFL. While there is no question he is a Bronco, what Gary has learned from his other opportunities around the league—especially in his eight seasons as a head coach—will tremendously benefit our organization.
"Having coached on three Super Bowl champions and 11 playoff teams, Gary knows what it will take to deliver another World Championship to Broncos fans. Coach Kubiak is all about winning and doing things the right way, which are values that have always been most important to the Broncos and Owner Pat Bowlen.
"We are very excited to welcome Gary, and his wife, Rhonda, back to the Denver Broncos."
