Asking you guys..is he thought of highly around the league or just another coach? I don't watch all the ESPN's and NFLN like so many do here...
My guess would be OC'ing for whatever team hires Shanahan

The Texans would not be his last HC job if we let him go tho

If he got tossed, I would be surprised if he's snatched up as a HC. He would have accomplished nothing if he's fired to put him in line for a job as a head coach. I think people would view his reign (assuming 8-8 or worse next year) as a failure given the talent on this team and the rumblings of "watch out for the Texans this coming season" that we've been hearing the past couple of years.

Of course, as long as the Detroit Lions are around, there will always be a team that would hire anyone or anything, even if it were a piece of gum stuck to the bottom of a shoe. So good luck, you chewed up and spit out piece of Hubba Bubba...the Lions have their eyes on you!

All the fans on the Broncos message boards are waiting for McDaniels to fail and then they all want to hire Kubes.

I hadn't thought of him doing that. You are probably right. Of course I'm sure he likes doing what he's doing right now. Thanks for the input.

I honestly don't even know who the current Lions coach is. Probably should as an NFL fan but I don't.

Default Re: Kubiak's future

Yes it is definitely true that this is a very important year for Mr. Kubiak. My only question though is who would we replace him with?

I don't see Bill Cowher, Mike Shanahan, or Jon Gruden as being potential candidates. So who would we be interested in?

Unless the Texans totally tank next season, I want Kubiak to stay. Even if we go 8-8 again. (Hopefully not though!)

Didn't we just go through like a hundred pages of this already?

Ok it was only 26 pages of Kubes on the hotseat.

Yes, we've already established that Kubiak, just like any coach that isn't within 2-3 yrs of a Super Bowl appearance, is on the "hot seat".

My question to all those who say "playoffs or fire the bum" continues to be: who will replace Kubiak?
I agree with Mari-Owned. Neither Cowher nor Shanahan is likely to come here - I see Jerry Jones picking up one of them as Wade Phillips' replacement after they fail to make the playoffs again this year. Dan Synder probably picks up the other one after the Jim Zorn experiment fails ...again. Both of those teams made "big splash moves" this off-season, so if they don't make the playoffs heads will roll.

I detest Gruden so much that I'd burn all my Texans gear if they hired him. I mean it.

I don't think there's anything wrong with not knowing who the Lions's coach is, as they are in the NFL by technicality only. Don't beat yourself up, NFL fan!

That's a horrible reason to keep a head coach. Either the coach is getting the job done, or he's not. Fear of replacing an unsuccessful coach is nonsensical.

Former Titan DC Jim Schwartz. Sadly, I didn't have to look it up.

They just signed the Titans ex-defensive coordinator. Jim Schwartz....too bad the Lions couldn't let him bring Fat Albert with him.

Well there you go guys..Coach Schwartz..thanks.

Detroit seems to have the pox right now..the city is in horrible shape, the mayor is/was a crook and the Red Wings lost the Cup.

Eck! Maybe the Lions can win a game or two this year.

If the Lions have ANY success this year, what's the over/under on the city making some sort of Space Balls "believe in the Schwartz!" reference?

And if the Texans have a 4th consecutive non-winning, non-playoff season (0-fer franchise history, to boot), they should be just as fearless.

I suppose I didn't make myself clear. Fear has nothing to do with my question. I genuinely do not see anyone that's significantly better than the coaching team we've already assembled. And before people mention Cowher, ask yourself just how successful he would have been if he had Richard Smith running his defense instead of Dick LeBeau.

And regarding being "unsuccessful", I guess there are 20 "unsuccessful" coaches every season since only 12 out of 32 teams make the playoffs. So by that definition, there should be 20 guys looking for jobs every year.

how many of them have four or five consecutive non-winning, non-playoff seasons?
