Got no link, but my cousin is highly connected into the A&M alumni and higher ups, and the big rumor floating around is that they plan on throwing a ton of money at Kubes next season. It wouldn't be the first time a Pro Coach left to coach at his old school, and Kubiak was very interested in going there before he got the Houston job.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I think its a long shot myself, but who knows.

He better not pull a Saban on us.

I think he is a really good coach, besides how he manages the clock in close games, he has turned this team around.

I heard about it on the radio a while back...

I don't think Kubiak would leave, but I wouldn't put anything past anyone...

If it happens (and I don't think it will) we transition to Mike Sherman in an instant. I don't think that's necessarily a good thing but I bet that's how it (hypothetically) goes down.

The radio guys love to talk about this too. It's not going to happen - yet. When he's done with the Texans, he'll go there if the timing is right (which it will be because the Aggies will always suck).

I'm pretty sure McNair will just give him more money to keep him here.

I think Apple's buddy was the same guy that called 610 last week... J/K!!

It's not gonna happen. PERIOD.

Kubiak hasn't coached at the college level in 20 years. Why would he want to be the next Charlie Weis??

I have heard that Sherman is at the top of the list for the Aggie job.

I am confident it isn't going to happen because he seems dedicated to this team.

But man a coaching change can set us back if it were to happen.

I would like to see us get away from the Packers/Broncos crap if Kubes leaves.

Al Saunders would be nice. Hell, he probably would have been the HC in 2006 if he wasn't a Carr hater.

He's already an NFL head coach, in his own home town.

Why would he move away to take a demotion?

STOOPID!

I don't think that he'd take a job coaching college. At least not at this point.

Coaching college requires a different skill set that I don't really think that he has...and I don't think that's a bad thing. He seems to be more of an introvert that is good at cracking defenses, but not good at going into a stranger's living room and selling him and his family on why he should go to University of X instead of University of Y or Z. He just doesn't strike me as much of a people person. If you listen to his show on 610, then you know what I'm talking about.

I think the Aggies should pay top dollar to try and get Greg Davis off of Mack Brown's staff. That's just the kind of coach the Aggies need. :joker:

If Kubiak leaves, he needs to leave this year. There are some decent alternatives at this point in time namely Cowher, Carroll, and maybe even Jimmah. I haven't been unhappy with Kubiak but I would rather lose Kubiak and keep Rick Smith.

I'd be surprised if Kubiak leaves after this season. I just don't see it happening, but I suppose anything is possible.

Paul "Bear" Bryant or Jackie Sherrill have a better chance of coaching at A&M next year than Kubiak does.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Let us get someone who knows how to game plan, and has some BALLS!! My grandson corrected me yesterday when I was screaming at my TV for Kubes to have some BALLS, that they are called "cookies" or "bells!" LOL Out of the mouth of an 8 y/o! Never heard um called that!:shades:

That's all over Texags.com to. A lot of Aggie fans want Kubes, but they didn't call him to get his interest in the job before they hired Fran, and I don't think Kubes called them either. I don't see Kubiak being interested in coaching college right now. If college coaching was where he wanted to be then he would have left Denver a long time ago.

Sherman does have a better chance of taking that job than Kubiak. And quite frankly I wouldn't be that upset if Sherman left. I think he's been good to have at the start but feel that he and Kubiak both managing the offense can be confusing at times.

I don't think we should be unhappy with Kubes yet. I mean...he is the reason we CARED about yesterdays loss as much as we did.

Remember a time where by this point we were 2-4 or 1-5 and you know another loss really didn't matter to you. You just went on with your day. For how many of you did you find that after yesterdays loss lingering?...it just lingered on for the day. It didn't screw up my day...it was just always in the back of my mind that we lost a game we should have won and everytime I saw a highlight or heard about the sports news...sure enough I thought about the Texans getting blown out...it just hurt more I am usually used to losing by now and giving up on the season by now.

I am completely over it now, but I couldn't even enjoy the games after yesterday because of that loss. When we didn't have Kubes a loss was just another loss. The only thing we hoped for was to show something in the loss. Now we are thinking about winning and caring more about the games.

I could see Sherman leaving the Texans to take the A&M job, and I wouldn't mind that at all. That would put the play calling in Kubiaks hands for sure.

leah does have a great point there. the losses do hurt now. not as much as good ole Oilers' days but they hurt unlike in the past when they were expected.

my point is that if Kubes is going to leave, he should leave this year and not later.

Yep, I agree. Even with the horrid time management and bad red zone play calling, I'm still all for giving Kubes a chance. Besides, another regime change? Then we're looking at someone else to come in rebuild the team the way they want it while all the players get used to constant change and losing.

This would be the absolute worst thing that could happen to this team, let's hope it is not even close to being a real possibility! Kubiak is the man as far as I'm concerned. I think his playcalling is a little suspect, but I'm willing to believe that it will get better (he is still not that experienced as a head coach yet). As far as clock management - I blame that mostly on a rookie QB, he is the leader on the field that's his territory and responsibility.

Kubiak would probably be public enemey #1 if he left. I'd have total disrespect for the man if he left a pro team on the rise to go to a college team on the fall.

10-15-2007, 01:26 PM
I don't think it will happen, but it wouldn't surprise me.

A lot of it probably depends on his contract. If the Aggies can talk to him about the position, and he listens, there will probably be a lot of money involved.

The pro and college game are so different though.

Yep, that's where he and Kubiak first met. Kubiak coached RB's one year under Slocum after he retired from Denver, and I believe Sherman was the OL coach at the time.

He has waited forever to be a NFL head coach, he's not going to leave after 2 years.

I think that would probably be an issue because Kubiak would (in theory, again let me stress that I don't believe this will happen) be coaching in the exact same part of the country where the pro team he just left is located. A&M would in effect be ticking off football fans in their own back yard. Imagine if Saban had dumped the Dolphins to become the coach of the Hurricanes for a moment. He would be asking the same group of fans that he just screwed to fork over money for tickets and come see his college team.

I doubt the powers that be at A&M or Gary Kubiak are stupid enough to do something like that, particularly when you consider the ramifications this would have on recruiting in SE Texas.

If we go 7-9 or better this year and in 2008 can correct the LT, RB, CB, Center and FS issues, we could have a very solid season in 08. Kubes would be a hero. I think our scoring avg is up this season and scoring plus wins creates mucho excitement. I can't see him leaving unless the bottom falls out this year.

Repeat this mantra

Bennett to start in 08. $30 million shopping $ for FA. 1st, 3rd and 4th rounds should bring starters (LT, RB and center). 5th and 6th quality back ups.

You are correct sir.

My brother goes to A&M and just since the disaster against Tech he has heard different rumors that these guys are definite locks to be the coach next year:

Gary Kubiak
Mike Sherman
Greg Davis (Texas off. coordinator & QB coach)
Tommy Tuberville (Auburn head coach)

Martz was an awful head coach. Totally not what ewe want here. Though, he does hate the running game, so maybe we wont run so much. But then you build for ANOTHER different offense and set us back 2 more years. Not worth it.

Kubiak is NOT going to leave his dream job to go back to college. He's been an NFL coach forever. This isn't like a long-time college coach (i.e. Spurrier, Saban) trying out an NFL head-coaching career only to find out that coaching in the NFL is 1) a ridiculous time commitment that keeps you off the golf course, 2) joyless and thankless, and 3) replaces bright-eyed, adoring kids with grown men with their own opinions and agendas.

I would buy the Sherman theory except that I think Sherman is going to get another shot at being an NFL coach this year. He was thisclose last year.

Greg Davis? That's just hilarious for so many reasons.

I am not going to read all of the post so I am sorry if this has been said earlier. Kubiak left A&M for a pro job because he did not like to recruit. The college game is all about the recruiting, and Kubiak does not like the stuff that goes along with that.

In the pro game it is more about coaching the system, and developing stars. I for one would be very shocked if Kubiak left the NFL to go back to coaching at a college, any college.

My understanding of Kubiaks interest in the TAMU job a few years ago was to get him the HC experience he lacked on any level so he could get a HC job in the NFL in the future. Kubiak dream job is in the NFL, Houston, I would bet his 2nd choice is Denver, and or SF.

Sherman has a better chance of being the HC at A&M. I would like to see them go after an offensive minded coach, like Chris Petersen Boise State. Or a person with Texas connections like Todd Graham Tulsa (former Rice HC), but that might create the same problem they had in recruiting under Coach Fran (when a coach is always auditioning for the next higher job, he is easy to recruit against).

I would not be opposed to them hiring a longhorn, Applewhite, or maybe a current coach of theirs like Greg Davis or Duane Akina. If you take a Texas coach you hurt UT in many ways.

There are many options out there, and I see the Aggie's not going after Kubiak, or at least him not listening for long.
