Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak began the new year by announcing to his team that he was retiring from the NFL.

At 55-years old, Kubiak cited health concerns as the top reason for his departure.

In 2013, Kubiak collapsed while coaching the Houston Texans, suffering from a transient ischemic attack. This October, Kubiak took a week off after being diagnosed with a complex migraine condition.

Denver’s off-season had promised to be an eventful one, even prior to the news of Kubiak’s departure. Now, finding a new head coach is their first priority. Here’s a few names we think Denver fans should take a look at…
