"I've told you guys before, I'm consumed with what I'm doing," Kubiak said Wednesday. "It's not time for stuff like that. I talked to John Monday morning and I told John, 'If anybody wants to talk to me, tell them no.' I'm a busy man right now. I have a lot to do.
"I think it's always flattering as a coach to be mentioned by any organization in football, but no, my total focus is on our football team and trying to enjoy what I'm doing right now.
Kubiak, 53, was the head coach of the Houston Texans for eight seasons, compiling a 61-64 record and earning two trips to the playoffs. In his first season as the Ravens' offensive coordinator, the team has set single-season franchise records with 409 points and 5,838 total yards.
Kubiak has been consistent all year in saying that he's focused on the job that he has, and he isn't looking beyond this season.
"I don't think about those things, I told you guys that," Kubiak said. "I've been through it. I had my turn, and I'm really enjoying what I'm doing. I've told you guys that over and over again. I don't think about what's next. I'm enjoying what's right now, and that's this organization, this football team and these players.
"I'm really enjoying what I'm doing. I just want to stay focused on that. That's been my message to John and my message to myself."
Newsome has been recommended by former NFL executive John Wooten and Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome (no relation to Vince Newsome).
Wooten, the director of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, expressed confidence in how a potential Newsome-Kubiak tandem could work out in Chicago.
"I think it would be outstanding the way those two guys would work together to build a winning football team," Wooten said in a telephone interview with The Baltimore Sun. "I could see Vince and Gary putting something together that would be really special. You're not going to find two better people than those two, that's for sure."
