Broncos coach Gary Kubiak likely to step down amid health concerns

With family concerns growing regarding his long-term health, Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak is expected to resign, according to a report.

Kubiak missed a game this season because of headaches and a "complex migraine" that landed him in the hospital. Kubiak suffered a mini-stroke and collapsed on the sideline at halftime of a game in 2013 when he was head coach of the Houston Texans.

According to Schefter, Kubiak's plans will be finalized next week.

Last season, he deftly managed injuries at quarterback, edge rusher and left tackle to lead the Broncos to their third Lombardi Trophy even though both Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler struggled to run the offense. I love this work.

Cricket commentator Mark Nicholas taken to hospital for second time
A spokesperson for Channel Nine confirmed the news, saying, "During a break today, Mark Nicholas had some abdominal pains". It is the second time in three days the veteran commentator has been rushed to hospital after falling ill on Monday.

In his 32 years in the NFL-including nine as a player-Kubiak has been a part of 318 total wins (81 as a player, 151 as an assistant, 86 as a head coach).

As a precaution, doctors ordered Kubiak, 55, to take the week off to rest and let special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis step in as interim coach. Kubiak said, smiling. "Yes, you know that I love this league". At 8-7, with a possible 8-8 or 9-7 record, Denver won't make the playoffs and the toll of the season has apparently compelled Kubiak to re-evaluate his health and his desire to continue as head coach.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph would be a candidate for the job. He has won four Super Bowls, three with Denver and one with the San Francisco 49ers. Kubiak was sacked at season's end, having put together a 61-64 mark over seven seasons with the Texans.
