Gary Kubiak, who Bengals tried to interview, ‘might’ be leaving Broncos

If Kubiak is on the market, he should be at or near the top of the Bengals’ big board for offensive coordinators.

Early in the Bengals’ coaching search, the team attempted to interview Broncos assistant Gary Kubiak, but they were ultimately denied said request.

Well, now the Bengals might not have to worry about getting permission, as Kubiak could soon become a coaching free agent, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network reporter James Palmer:

However, Albert Breer reports that Kubiak is unlikely to coach this season, and he may actually remain with Denver.

So, for now, it’s unclear if Kubiak is actually leaving the Broncos and if he’ll actually coach in 2019.

Either way, the Bengals tried to interview to be the team’s next offensive coordinator, as they’re looking for a new one after Bill Lazor was just let go. Kubiak would be one of the top offensive coordinators available ‘if’ that’s the path he chooses for next season.

While nothing appears to be final yet in terms of Kubiak staying or leaving Denver, it’s worth keeping an eye on for the Bengals.
