Gary Kubiak has accomplished a lot in his first season as the head coach of the Denver Broncos. He led the Broncos to a 12-4 record, No. 1 seed in the AFC, a No.1-ranked defense and he did so while dealing with injuries to key starters all over the field, including one that sidelined a certain future Hall of Fame quarterback.
Kubiak will become the first person in NFL history to appear in the Super Bowl as both a player and a head coach with the same team. Kubiak appeared in three Super Bowls as a backup to John Elway, was the offensive coordinator for Super Bowl 32 and 33, helping the Broncos to their first World Championships, and now will be the head coach for Super Bowl 50.
Kubiak also joins a small fraternity of first-year head coaches to take their team to the Super Bowl, becoming the seventh coach ever to do so and second Bronco coach behind Red Miller.
Kubiak and the Broncos hope to see Kubiak become the fourth coach to win the Super Bowl in his first year. Kubiak would join Don McCafferty (Baltimore Colts SB V), George Seifert (San Francisco 49ers SB XXIV) and Jon Gruden (Tampa Bay Buccaneers SB XXXVII) as the only first-year coaches to do it.
