Gary Kubiak to join Minnesota Vikings in offensive advisory role

The Minnesota Vikings added a second father/son combo to the coaching staff today.

Part of the reason the Bengals were denied the interview in the first place could relate to Kubiak not wanting an on-field role anymore.

The Minnesota Vikings hired former Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak as an assistant head coach and offensive adviser on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kubiak was a special advisor for the Broncos last season but there was some sort of falling out. He also helped Denver win Super Bowl 50 before temporarily retiring in 2016 after concerns about his health began to grow.

Gary Kubiak is quickly becoming an in-demand coach.

In addition to Kubiak joining the coaching staff, his son Klint is expected to become the Vikings' quarterbacks coach. Apparently, the Vikings did enough to convince Kubiak and his son that the Vikings would be the best fit for them next season.

He'll be following his father to Minnesota and re-joining the staff as a quarterbacks coach under offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski.

Klint Kubiak, 31, previously coached for the Vikings from 2013-2014, when he was an assistant WR coach/quality control coach.

Kubiak was sacked by the Texans in 2013, but soon returned to the head coaching ranks with the Broncos in 2015.

Denver Broncos announced they will hire Mike Munchak to fill their offensive line coaching position.
