BREAKING: Houston Texans Fire Head Coach Gary Kubiak

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

After an unusual 11:00 AM press conference following a Texans game, the Houston Texans have announced that Head Coach Gary Kubiak has been fired.

The speculation first began after a tweet from Peter King (Sports Illustrated).

 

It was 10 minutes after the press conference was scheduled to start when Jay Glazer was the first to report the Texans have officially fired Kubiak.

 

Kubiak was first announced as Head Coach in January of 2006. He was the first coach to lead the team to a .500 season and then a above .500 season. In 2011, Kubiak was the first Texans coach to coach the team to the playoffs. The Texans would defeat the Cincinnati Bengals twice in two seasons in the playoffs, but would be eliminated in the next round both seasons.

This season, Kubiak and the Texans would fall off a clip. Kubiak coached the team to a 2-11 record before being fired today. The 2013 season was even longer for Kubiak after he suffered a stroke at halftime of the week 9 affair between the Texans and the Indianapolis Colts. Kubiak wasn’t able to coach from the sidelines until a few weeks ago. Kubiak leaves the Texans with a combined 61-64 (.488) record over his career in Houston.

Update: Wade Phillips will replace Kubiak as Texans Head Coach for the remainder of the season. The Texans will look into coaching options for 2014 as the season ends.
