I will believe this reality until proven otherwise. Go Texans!
Me too ....


Kubiak's here to stay as long as this team is in the thick of things (10+ w's and one or more W's in the playoffs) ..... All this speculating on who would replace him , where he might end up is .... a waste of effort.

You should seriously consider politics for a living!

But, you are right. He's had two losing seasons, two 8-8 seasons, and two winning seasons. Which makes him perfect arguing material for fans.

Considering what he had to work with in those two losing seasons .... Its hard not to give him a pass on those.


Then you factor in the two 8-8 seasons ....and think they could have done more.

Last years team was full of injuries yet still pushed the Ravens to the brink.

Why give Kubiak a pass on the 6-10 record of 2010? He had built that team for 5 seasons.

No details on the length yet, but it's done - Rick Smith too!

Their contracts would have expired after the 2012 season.

Nice find. I think most have expected this even before McNair announced he would extend both. Details when available will be interesting. Now if he will lock in Wade....

Per TC, three year extension. That would put Gary under contract through the 2015 season.

Kubiak has 3 year extension at his choice, could have been 4. Rick Smith extended for 4 years per Texans owner Bob McNair.

Default Re: Kubiak: extension?

General manager Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak crafted and fielded a team that made a major breakthrough last season: the Houston Texans’ first trip to the playoffs.

Owner Bob McNair had major faith in both of them, and with that progress and payoff the contract extensions they’ve both gotten are well deserved.

While fielding congratulatory messages, both Smith and Kubiak should make one important stop today in the office of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips to say thanks for his contribution.

They were smart enough to hire him, but the story of the Texans and the job security of Smith and Kubiak could be a far different tale but for the contribution of Phillips in his first year overseeing the defense.

Kubiak is an offensive head coach who calls the plays. Finding the right defensive "head coach" was a must for the franchise. And, coming out of a lockout, Phillips’ transformation of the group into a 3-4 with a real personality was nothing short of phenomenal.

His finger prints were on the draft selections of J.J. Watt and Brooks Reed, great fits for his system who made giant and immediate contributions. He saw how good Brian Cushing could be inside instead of outside. He voted for the plan that brought in Johnathan Joseph and Danieal Manning.

And, much to the Texans' relief, he took the pay bump McNair gave him late last season to pass on a trip to Tampa Bay to interview for the head coaching job.

Smith and Kubiak deserve applause and credit. I don’t see them as the type to rest on their laurels now. The division is primed for the taking again, and a second division title in the row could indicate that the franchise is only at the start of something big.

Something that might never have really gotten started and might have been scrapped but for Phillips’ contribution.

Guys on the radio are speculating that maybe Kubes thinks he may be worth more after that 3rd year is done and didn't want to be locked into the current deal.

BoBBY loves him some Rick and Gary.

I would've extended them only 1-2 yrs.

Coughlin only got a 3 yr extention and he's won 2 SB's in 5 yrs.

The Mara's have wanted to get rid of Coughlin each one of those 5 years. Both SB teams were 9-7 and made inexplicable playoff runs when the talk was about getting rid of the HC going into Wildcard Weekend.

Agreed

But Coughlin has the rings.

I do believe Gary deserved an extention. But 3 yrs is an awfully long time for a HC that's only 2 yrs removed from a 6-10 season. What happens if Wade gets a HC job next offseason? Can we expect another 6-10?

Coughlin is 65 years old...Kubiak is 50...

I think the oldest coaches in NFL history were both 72...

Me thinks his age has something to do with the length of his extension....Maybe Coughlin and the team discussed it an they thought that would be a good age for him to re-evaluate his career...
