Kubiak, the former head coach of the Houston Texans who spent last year as the offensive  coordinator  for the Baltimore Ravens,  has a long history with the Broncos.  He was  the backup quarterback for John Elway from 1983-91 and spent 11 seasons as the clubs offensive coordinator from 1995-2005. When I got off the plane ... I knew that I was home, said Kubiak on Tuesday. Im proud to be back in the Bronco nation. This was a big part of my life and Im looking at it be a big part of it again. Now, its time to go to work. Kubiak  takes over for  John Fox, who guided Denver to AFC West titles in each of  his four seasons and also led the Broncos to the Super Bowl after the 2013 campaign.  This years squad was eliminated in the divisional round at home by the  Indianapolis Colts,  leading to Foxs departure in a mutual decision with management. This is a great football team, Kubiak said about trying to fulfill the lofty expectations created by the success of the last four years. The next level is winning  the  Super Bowl. You  have to position  yourself for taking that next step.  Its been proven  year in and year out that you want to be playing your best in January. Kubiak  remembers how important January football is. He was on the sideline as offensive coordinator for each of Denvers two Super Bowl titles with Elway as the quarterback. Elway, of course, is now in charge of the Broncos as the teams executive vice president  and general manager.  He and Fox could not agree on a direction for the team going forward, opening the door for a new coach. Kubiak was the Hall of Famers No. 1 choice. He  was  definitely at  the top of  the list, Elway  said about the coaching search.  Gary  was the  leader in  the clubhouse. Our  concern was whether he wanted to be (a head coach) again. Kubiak  went from  the Broncos offensive coordinator to the head coach of the Texans  in 2006.  He helped  turn the  Houston franchise  around in  his eight seasons, leading the club to its first two playoff appearances. Thhe  Texans went 10-6  in 2011 and 12-4 in 2012, winning the AFC South and one playoff  game  each year, but a  disastrous 2013 followed. Laken Tomlinson Super Bowl Jersey. After winning their first  two  games of  the 2013 campaign,  Houston went on  to lose 11 straight before  Kubiak was  fired in  early December.  He finished  his tenure  with a record of 61-64. Kubiak  landed in  Baltimore this past season  and helped the Ravens to one of their  top  offensive performances.  Baltimore posted a franchise-record 364.9 yards per game on offense and the Ravens reached the playoffs as a sixth seed, beating Pittsburgh before falling to New England. As  numerous coaching  vacancies opened earlier this month, Kubiak declined to throw  his hat in  the ring. He said he was happy to remain in Baltimore, that is until the Broncos job was there for the taking. I  felt  very good  about what  I was  doing (in  Baltimore), said Kubiak on Tuesday.  I  was very comfortable, but  this (opportunity) is a game changer. This is where I got my start. This is home for me. This means so much to me. I cant  wait  to go out there.  I was standing  there with (the team) last time they won the championship. Now, Kubiak will have the task of trying to lead the Broncos to another title. Whether he has quarterback Peyton Manning at his disposal is another question. Kubiak  said  he has spoken  with Manning, who  hasnt decided whether he will return for another season. We  have  talked, talked a  couple of  days ago at  length and last night via text,  said Kubiak,  who  added that  the two  didnt  speak about  Mannings upcoming decision. We  didnt  get that far.  It was just  conversations about family, about how hes  feeling. We were just setting the stage for our time to get together and talk. This is his time, his decision and I need to be there for him. Kubiak  started five games  as Elways backup during his time as a player with the Broncos. After his playing career ended, he took his first coaching job as running  backs coach with  Texas A&M in 1992 and 93, then moved on to the NFL as quarterbacks coach with San Francisco in 1994 before first returning to the Broncos.        '''
