Gary Kubiak, who was fired as head coach of the Texans on Dec. 6 when they were 2-11, has been named offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Monday. ESPN's Adam Schefter had previously reported that Kubiak was the favorite for the job.

The Browns were reportedly interested in Kubiak for the same position.
