The interconnection between the Denver Broncos and the New Orleans Saints is growing stronger. In a week where the Broncos reportedly added former Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, the Saints have decided to hire Klint Kubiak, who has previously worked for Denver twice, to assume Carmichael’s role as offensive coordinator. This move is set to happen after Kubiak completes his coaching responsibilities with the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.

Klint Kubiak, son of former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak, has been associated with the Broncos in two coaching roles. Initially serving as an offensive assistant from 2016 to 2018, he primarily worked with quarterbacks during that period. He then left to join the Vikings, where he eventually rose to the position of offensive coordinator for the 2021 season.

Returning to Denver last year as the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Kubiak even assumed play-calling responsibilities for six games when Nathaniel Hackett stepped down. In the current year, Kubiak joined the 49ers as their passing game coordinator, collaborating closely with former Broncos quarterback Brian Griese, who serves as the QB coach for San Francisco.

The affiliations between personnel and organizations can sometimes be intricate, but the ties between the Broncos and Saints are notably deep. Head coach Sean Payton has consistently brought in former New Orleans coaches, and Klint Kubiak is the latest addition to this connection, filling a void in The Big Easy.
