The Minnesota Vikings are hiring former Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak in an offensive advisory role, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Kubiak's son, Klint, is expected to become Vikings quarterbacks coach and Kevin Stefanski will remain as Vikings offensive coordinator.
Editor's Picks

Stefanski back as Vikings' offensive coordinator
Kevin Stefanski, the longest-tenured coach on the Vikings, has returned as offensive coordinator following a stint as the interim coach at the position and being a candidate for the Browns' coaching job.

Sources: Kubiak won't be part of Fangio's staff
Gary Kubiak will not be part of Vic Fangio's coaching staff with the Broncos, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Legwold on Friday.

Munchak agrees to be Broncos' O-line coach
Mike Munchak has left the Steelers to join Vic Fangio's staff in Denver as offensive line coach. Munchak was a finalist for the Broncos' head-coaching job. Denver named Fangio to that position on Thursday.
Kubiak recently left the Broncos after the team hired Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as its new coach and it was determined Kubiak would not be part of Fangio's coaching staff.
A return to the staff was something John Elway, the president of football operations/general manager, earlier had said was a possibility for Kubiak.
The Broncos fired head coach Vance Joseph on Dec. 31.
Kubiak played in three Super Bowls with the Broncos and won three as an assistant coach with the team in addition to Super Bowl 50, when he was head coach.
Kubiak stepped down after two seasons as the Broncos head coach in January 2017 but remained with the team as an advisor.
His resignation as coach came amid health concerns that arose midway through the season when he was taken from the stadium in an ambulance following a loss and spent a night in the hospital. Kubiak was diagnosed with a "complex migraine condition.''
Three years earlier, when he was coach of the Houston Texans, Kubiak collapsed during halftime of a game, an incident later diagnosed as a transient ischemic attack, or mini-stroke.
In addition to his head coaching jobs, Kubiak was offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens.
