The Denver Broncos will request an interview with Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The Broncos and head coach John Fox mutually agreed to part ways after losing in the Divisional Round of the playoffs to the Indianapolis Colts.

Kubiak previously worked for the Denver Broncos from 1995 through 2005, winning a pair of Super Bowls. He was also a backup quarterback to current general manager and former Broncos quarterback John Elway from 1983 through 1991.

Kubiak said earlier this week that he will return to the Ravens instead of pursuing head coaching jobs, but it's unclear if he has changed his mind in the wake of the Denver news.

"It is flattering and humbling to be invited to interview for a number of NFL head coaching positions, and I greatly appreciate these opportunities,” Kubiak said in a statement. “But I have decided to stay with the Ravens.

“This is a special organization and we, like [head] coach [John] Harbaugh says, are building something great. I want to be a part of that and contribute in whatever ways I can.”

The Chicago Bears were reportedly ready to make a "major push" to hire Kubiak as their head coach.

Before joining the Ravens, Kubiak was head coach of the Houston Texans from 2006 through 2013. He led the Texans to two playoff appearances and compiled a 61-64 record in Houston.
