Entering his 1st season as the Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Advisor, Gary Kubiak brings 24 years of coaching experience to the Vikings staff, including 10 as an NFL head coach. Appearing in 9 conference championship games and 7 Super Bowls as a player or coach, Kubiak has been part of 4 World Championship staffs during his career, most recently as the Head Coach of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
Before leading Denver to a Super Bowl victory in his initial season as head coach in 2015, he served as the offensive coordinator for the back-to-back Super Bowl-champion Broncos in 1997-98 and as the QBs coach for the 49ers’ Super Bowl winning team in 1994.
The Broncos’ 24-10 win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50 made Kubiak just the 4th head coach in NFL history to win a World Championship in his 1st year as head coach of a team. After appearing in 3 Super Bowls for Denver in the late 1980s as a player, Kubiak also became the 1st individual to win a Super Bowl as the Head Coach and as a player for the same team.
