    luke richardson came here with high praise and it was considered a major "get" to have him leave denver... Just heard he resigned to head back to denver to be with his family... anybody have any other info?? I was under the impression he was highly respected and the team and organization loved what he has done..

    Heard we're trying to coax Annie Wilkes out of retirement as a comparable replacement.

    Could the Broncos be sending us Kubiak in exchange?

    Saw this in chron.com: https://www.chron.com/sports/texans...gth-coach-Luke-Richesson-resigns-13514888.php

    Sounds like it's just a family thing. Guess the rest of the family just didn't want to move to Houston and the distance and time apart was just too much, but that's just a guess.

    I’m guessing the OP was just wondering if there was some drama behind the scenes.

    Actually he said there "has to be." But no, there doesn't.

    If there's no drama there must be $$$$$ involved.

    So sounds like his wife and kids live in the Denver area but refuse to move to Houston. That sort of thing happens often and other times it's vice versa.

    I know that drama and money are more interesting, but there are more a handful of "different" people in the world. It is as much as an option as the other two things. This is my personal experience, not some weird thought pattern.

    Honestly I'm willing to take this one at face value. Strength and conditioning coaches aren't exactly blamed when things go south, at least not unless they really screw the pooch, so I don't see this as being a fall out from sat. game. Also a person gets in a relationship with a football player or coach then, mostly, they know that they could be changing towns without warning. A trainer and such, not so much so I can very much believe the wife and kids didn't want to move, it is a big change going from Denver weather to Houston weather. I'd be more willing to bet it was a case of come here, make some money then plan to move back all along. Can't blame him, did that for years working construction.

    IMO, it's just a family thing. Hate to see him go though he was supposed to be a special trainer.
