Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak officially announced his retirement from coaching Thursday. 

Kubiak has spent 36 years in the NFL as a player or coach. 

"I've been on a football field for most of my life, and now I look forward to stepping away from the game and enjoying more time with my family and friends," Kubiak said in a statement released by the Vikings.

Kubiak was the head coach of the Denver Broncos when they won Super Bowl 50. He has four Super Bowl rings, winning three as an assistant with Denver and San Francisco.

The Vikings will now have a sixth different offensive coordinator in head coach Mike Zimmer's eight-year tenure in Minnesota.
