Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak will retire. Kubiak steps away after two seasons with the team due to health concerns.
Kubiak told the players he’s retiring. He’s had health scares with the Broncos and even in his final season with the Houston Texans when he was their head coach.
“In all honesty I’ve struggled this year, but I’ll talk about that tomorrow,” he said.
The 55-year-old was in the hospital in October for a complex migraine. He was one of three National Football League head coaches to be in the hospital this season.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was in the hospital twice. New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles was in the hospital on Dec. 23.
It was initially thought Bowles had a heart attack. However, that wasn’t the case and he coached the Jets on Christmas Eve against the New England Patriots in which New York lost 41-3.
Last season, Kubiak guided the Broncos to a Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers.
