Fangio said he does not know who the offensive coordinator will be trying to get the best out of Keenum, but he acknowledged that he's interested in bringing back former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak as the offensive coordinator.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, after lengthy discussions, the Broncos and Kubiak have chose to go in different directions due to disagreements regarding staffing and offensive philosophy. Kubiak was considered a top candidate for the job, but the Falcons hired Dirk Koetter on Tuesday.
Kubiak as Denver's offensive coordinator appeared to be such a foregone conclusion that they weren't letting him interview elsewhere earlier in the offseason.
Rick Nash retires due to concussion-related symptoms
Nash represented Canada at the Winter Olympics on three occasions, winning gold in 2010 in Vancouver and 2014 in Sochi. Nash totaled three goals and three assists for six points in 11 games with the Bruins last season.
Kubiak's zone-run scheme seemed like a flawless fit, much in the way his offense fit seventh-round pick Justin Forsett in Baltimore. With the likes of Nick Foles, Teddy Bridgewater and Joe Flacco headlining the group, it's telling that Fangio already committed to rolling with Keenum shortly after becoming the Broncos head coach. However, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, that is not the case.
Logic dictates the Broncos would want him to serve in that same capacity, but the team also has a vacancy at offensive coordinator.
