The head coach for the Houston Texans, Gary Kubiak received a two year extension to have him under contract for the next three seasons. It is very rare for a head coach in the NFL to coach in the final year of a contract, so the extension is no surprise. After five failed attempts to bring the Houston Texans to their first playoff appearance, and in a season that many considered a make or break season for Kubiak’s tenure with the Texans, he finally led the team to an AFC South Division crown and the franchises first playoff appearance. In the playoffs the Texans lost in a close game to the Ravens, but he can’t be blamed for the late season injury to Matt Schaub that sidelined him for the end of the season, and the playoffs.
Kubiak’s extension of two years gives him three more seasons as the Texans head coach. However, if the team regresses after their finest season in Texans franchise history, expect the pundits to put him back on the hot seat, because the expectations of the Texans continue to grow.
