Now play-calling for Vikings, Kubiak 'never lost the joy'

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) After a smooth first year as an offensive adviser for the Minnesota Vikings, Gary Kubiak was presented with the opportunity to rediscover his play-calling acumen.

When offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski climbed the ladder for the top job in Cleveland, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer sought to maintain as much continuity as possible after a solid season by quarterback Kirk Cousins and the rest of the offense. Kubiak had no interest in being a head coach again, but offensive coordinator? Well, that sure was intriguing.

"I just said, `Coach, mind if I go back home and mow some grass for a couple days or something and think about it?'" Kubiak recalled.
