New Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak doesn’t have much to say about whether he expects Peyton Manning to be his quarterback.

Kubiak said at his introductory press conference today that he has talked to Manning, but he doesn’t know whether Manning will retire. Kubiak also didn’t say whether the Broncos want to pay $19 million to a 39-year-old Manning in 2015.

“We have talked, talked a couple days ago at length, talked a little bit last night via text and those type of things, talked a lot about a lot of stuff,” he said. “I want to be the best support system I can be for Peyton.”

Kubiak did say that he thinks he and Manning could have success together.

“It’s easy to build a playbook for him. He’s been the master at it for many, many years. He’s a Hall of Fame player, Hall of Fame person. But we really didn’t get that far,” Kubiak said.

There will be plenty of time for Kubiak and Manning to figure out whether they’re going to work together in 2015. No decision has been made yet.
