BRONCOS HEAD COACH GARY KUBIAK NAMED 2016 TEXAS A&M LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNER

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak was selected by Texas A&M University as a 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, it was announced this week.

A 1983 graduate of Texas A&M, Kubiak last season became the first former Aggie to win a Super Bowl as a head coach. He will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 39th Annual Burgess Banquet on Friday, Nov. 18, at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.

“That’s pretty special,” Kubiak said. “Obviously that means a great deal to me. I love the school and I love what it stands for. I look forward to that. It was pretty cool.”

Before beginning his NFL playing and coaching career in 1983 with the Broncos, Kubiak earned three letters (1980-82) as a quarterback for the Aggies. As a senior, he was honored with the Aggie Heart Award, the most prestigious honor for an Aggie senior football player. Kubiak earned his degree in physical education from Texas A&M in 1983.

Following his nine-year NFL playing career with the Broncos, Kubiak began his coaching career with his alma mater in 1992, instructing the team’s running backs for two seasons on Head Coach R.C. Slocum’s staff. The Aggies went 22-3 and captured consecutive Southwest Conference Championships during his two seasons in College Station.

Kubiak, a four-time Super Bowl champion, enters his second year as the Broncos’ head coach and his 13th season as a member of the club’s coaching staff. Including his tenure as an assistant at Texas A&M, Kubiak owns a 251-152 (.623) overall record coaching football, including a 78-70 (.527) overall mark in nine seasons as an NFL head coach.
