Elway complained that Foxs teams didnt show enough fire in big games. Fox was hired as the Chicago Bears new coach on Friday.Elway and team president and CEO Joe Ellis met with Kubiak in Houston for several hours Sunday.Kubiak was Elways backup from 1983-91 and Denvers offensive co-ordinator from 1995-2005 under Mike Shanahan. He helped build the blueprint for the back-to-back Super Bowls the Broncos won that capped Elways Hall of Fame playing career.Hall of Fame finalist and NFL Network analyst Terrell Davis, Elways co-pilot on those title runs in 1997 and 98, said: Oh, man, if its Kubiak, that would be great. Id love to see him back in Denver. John Elway said at the podium the other day that he knew what it took to win a championship. Well, who else was there when he won a championship? Kubiak.Kubiak, who was the Ravens offensive co-ordinator this past season, went 63-66, counting the playoffs, as head coach of the Texans from 2006-13. He had a health scare during that last season in Houston and was fired by the Texans with three games left.Although Kubiak, 53, gets a second chance in Denver, his comeback actually began in Baltimore last season.Under Kubiak, the Ravens improved from 30th in the league in rushing to eighth and Joe Flaccos sacks dropped from 48 to 19. Kubiak bypassed chances to interview for the head coaching vacancies with the Bears and the Jets, saying he was happy in Baltimore.That was before his dream job opened up last Monday.Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris Jr., told the AP Sunday night that he didnt know much about Kubiaks deep history in Denver.I just know he was the offensive co-ordinator for the Ravens last year and he did a great job, Harris said.

I know hes getting a lot of talent here and were ready to get rolling together.Kubiak will be the 15th head coach in Broncos history, and talks between him and Elway surely included discussions about Kubiaks health. Kubiak collapsed at halftime of a Texans game in 2013 but quickly returned to the sideline.Elway interviewed two other candidates: Broncos offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase and Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph. Two others, former Bills head coach Doug Marrone and Lions defensive co-ordinator Teryl Austin, withdrew their names as it became clear that Kubiak was the heavy favourite.Kubiak takes over a team that may or may not have Peyton Manning under centre in 2015. The five-time MVP is mulling his future after a promising season turned sour down the stretch and ended unexpectedly with a 24-13 loss to his former team in the AFC divisional round.Elway asked Manning not to make a rash decision and said he wont need an answer for a few weeks. Manning, who turns 39 in March, is due $19 million each of the next two seasons.If he decides to retire, the Broncos would give a long look to Brock Osweiler, whom Elway drafted in the second round in 2012 and who has served a three-year apprenticeship under Manning.Manning pulled out of next weeks Pro Bowl because a strained right thigh hasnt gotten much better since his season ended. He was one of the Broncos league-high 10 Pro Bowlers, only two of whom are pending free agents — Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas — and Elway said re-signing them were his top priorities once he found a new coach.Kubiak is expected to bring Ravens quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison with him back to Denver. Dennison has served as an assistant with Kubiak in Denver, Houston and Baltimore. Joseph, who was Kubiaks secondary coach in Houston, could emerge as Denvers new defensive co-ordinator, too.Among assistants who could stay in Denver include running backs coach Eric Studesville, quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp and strength & conditioning coach Luke Richesson.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton ' ' '
