Baltimore's fear could be closer to reality.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak is scheduled to interview with the Broncos for the head coaching position this weekend.

This comes after Kubiak stated he wouldn't look at any head coaching jobs this offseason. Of course, this was before the Broncos job became available. This appears to be the only spot that could pry him away from Baltimore.

Kubiak is friends with Broncos general manager as they were teammates in Denver during their playing days. If anything, this could be more of a courtesy thing. But there has been no second statement issued from Kubiak or the Ravens, which could indicate a change of mind or an opportunity presenting itself that wasn't there previously.

You'd also have to think that if Kubiak wants the job, it's his. The Broncos interviewed Adam Gase but didn't make a hire. Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin took his name out of consideration for the job, according to ESPN. All eyes will be on Kubiak this weekend.

Losing Kubiak would be a huge blow. But Kubiak was never considered someone to be in Baltimore for the long term anyway.

What really hurts, though, is the fact that if Kubiak goes, Rick Dennison and Brian Pariani could go. And then you're looking at rebuilding an entire offensive staff again.

Then again, this had to have been a consideration when Kubiak was brought on staff a year ago.
