During that time he was a member of three Super Bowl teams and played in 14 playoff games. After assistant coaching positions at Texas A&M and with the San Francisco 49ers, Kubiak was hired by Mike Shanahan in 1995 to become the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos. The Broncos won their second consecutive Super Bowl this season. Kubiak is the first member of a private school to be inducted into the hall of fame.
