"I have great respect for the organization — obviously, playing them many times, but it gets down to John," said Kubiak, who played nine years in the NFL as a backup quarterback. "We had some great conversations over the course of the last couple of days. For me, I'm excited about getting back in the meeting room and teaching. I'm very fortunate to be a part of this great National Football League for many years, and it gives me a chance to be part of a championship organization and to work with a great, young quarterback. But I believe in John and how he does things, how he runs his football team, his coaching staff, what he stands for."
