Report: Houston Texans give extensions to HC Gary Kubiak, GM Rick Smith

Publish date:

The Houston Texans, fresh off the first postseason appearance in franchise history, rewarded head coach Gary Kubiak and general manager Rick Smith with contract extensions, according to a tweet by ESPN's Adam Schefter.


The Texans finished 10-6 last season to win the AFC South division title. Houston beat Cincinnati 31-10 in the first round of the playoffs before falling 20-13 to Baltimore the following week.

Kubiak has coached the team for six seasons. He led the team above .500 for the first time in 2009, but when the team fell to 6-10 the following season, many called for his firing.
