The Denver Broncos announced Tuesday that they've agreed to terms with Klint Kubiak as Offensive Assistant/Quarterbacks. Klint will assist his father, Gary Kubiak, with the offense and especially the quarterbacks.
Klint brings five years of coaching experience to the Broncos and spent 2015 as a wide receivers coach for the University of Kansas. Many fans will recognize him as the former strong safety of the Colorado State Rams, where he played college ball for five seasons.
Klint has NFL coaching experience, as well. He spent two seasons as a quality control/assistant wide receivers coach for the Minnesota Vikings (2013-14).
Nepotism? No. It is customary for NFL coaches to hire their sons as assistants. Wade Phillips' first NFL coaching experience came in 1976 with his father, Bum, and the Houston Oilers. Besides, Klint won't be the first son of Gary Kubiak to be hired by the Broncos.
Klein Kubiak serves as one of Denver's Player Personnel Assistants. The life of a scout is a grind.
In fairness, Klein was hired before the Broncos brought Gary back to be the head coach. John Elway is and always has been a close friend of Gary's, going back to their days as Bronco teammates and roomates.
Although their family name has been helpful in the progression of Klint and Klein's respective football careers, both guys have paid their dues and are deserving of their positions within the Broncos organization.
