The Cincinnati Bengals were linked to Gary Kubiak before he made a decision to leave the Denver Broncos and join the Minnesota Vikings.

Kubiak, who was a senior personnel adviser to general manager John Elway, instead joined the Minnesota Vikings in an offensive advisory role. He'll be following his father to Minnesota and re-joining the staff as a quarterbacks coach under offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski.

The Bengals will have to remain on the hunt for staff to hire underneath their new head coach. Scangarello jumped shift after one season to coordinate the Wagner College offense. He has spent many years learning under Kyle Shanahan during his time with the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers.

Neither Musgrave nor defensive coordinator Joe Woods will return in 2019. With his background and knowledge, it's the flawless time for Rich to be an offensive coordinator in the NFL.

The 49ers have already denied requests to interview wide receivers/passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel. For more than 15 years, he and Gary Kubiak have worked closely together during the former head coach's stints with the Broncos, Baltimore Ravens, and Houston Texans.

Netflix announces biggest subscription increase in 12 years
One other important point to make in relation to Netflix: back in 2010, the video company, like Spotify, only had one paid tier. T-Mobile CEO John Legere says that despite the Netflix price hike, T-Mo's Netflix On Us feature won't change "for now".

Despite retiring from coaching back in 2016, former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak has frequently been mentioned as a candidate for various positions.

Scangarello earned the credit from Shanahan and the 49ers players for his work in 2017 getting Jimmy Garoppolo comfortable with the playbook after his mid-season trade from New England. Inside linebackers coach Glenn Pires and assistant defensive backs coach Roy Anderson will also not be retained, according to multiple reports.

Scangarello would seem a good fit for an offense that general manager John Elway declared needs to modernize to keep up with teams around the National Football League who are all-in on the run-pass option, among other innovations.

Scangarello has said he appreciates how Shanahan views explosive plays, that every call has a objective and should be seen as a scoring opportunity.
