Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, a former Broncos quarterback and longtime assistant coach, will interview for Denver’s head-coaching position this weekend, according to league sources.
The Broncos are scheduled to interview Kubiak on Sunday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The source also said Denver would interview former Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone on Saturday, but Marrone since has canceled his interview because he wants to see what happens with Kubiak.
The Ravens believe that Kubiak might be the front-runner in Denver and already have begun hearing from potential replacements should Kubiak leave, a league source tells ESPN’s Ed Werder.
One of the Broncos’ other top targets, Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, has removed himself from consideration for the job, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
Austin had an interview scheduled with the Broncos on Friday.
The Broncos were also scheduled to meet with Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph on Friday. Joseph, who played and coached at the University of Colorado in nearby Boulder, has not been a coordinator in his career, but he is a coach who has been repeatedly recommended to the Broncos as the team went about comprising its list of candidates.
