Buc’s complete interview with OC candidate Kubiak

The Bucs announced that they have completed their interview with offensive coordinator candidate Klint Kubiak. The Broncos passing game coordinator last year, Kubiak did not run his offense in Denver. He previously led new head coach Nathaniel Hackett’s offense, which was largely ineffective in Denver and led to his firing after just 15 games.

Kubiak, 35, was the offensive coordinator at Minnesota during the 2021 season after spending the 2019–20 seasons as the Vikings quarterbacks coach. His father, Gary Kubiak, was the former Texans head coach (2006–13) and Broncos head coach (2015–16), while also serving as offensive coordinator at Baltimore (2014) and Minnesota (2020).

Klint Kubiak grew up in his father’s attack, who hails from the Mike Shanhan system where Gary Kubiak served as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator from 1995–2005. The Shanahan/Kubiak attack features many out-of-zone runs, passes, bootlegs, and deception. It’s similar to offenses committed by Kyle Shanhan in San Francisco and Shanahan’s student Mike McDaniels in Miami.

Under Klint Kubiak at Minnesota, the Vikings’ offense averaged 362.8 yards per game, which ranked 10th in the league, and averaged 25 points per game, which ranked 13th in the NFL.

Kirk Cousins ​​made the Pro Bowl in 2021, completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 4,221 yards with 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Pro Bowl rookie Justin Jefferson caught 108 passes for 1,616 yards (15 avg) and 10 touchdowns, while Adam Thielen also contributed 67 receptions for 726 yards (10.8) and 10 touchdowns.

The Vikings had the league’s 17th-ranked rushing offense, averaging 113.5 yards per game. Pro Bowler Dalvin Cook led the way with 1,159 yards and six touchdowns for an average of 4.7 yards per game.

Prior to entering the NFL as the Vikings offensive quality control coach (2013-14), Kubiak was the offensive quality control coach (2010-11) and a graduate assistant (2012) at Texas A&M, where he worked with Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans. Kubiak then coached receivers at Kansas (2015) and then was back in the NFL as an offensive assistant to Dad at Denver (2016-18).

The Bucs are also expected to interview Jaguars passing game coordinator Jim Bob Cooter and Vikings receivers coach Keenan McCardell, who was a Pro Bowl wide receiver in Tampa Bay from 2002-03. McCardell caught two touchdowns in the Bucs’ Super Bowl XXXVII victory.
