Gary Kubiak infographic will make you wonder how he still has a job (PIC)
With all the NFL coaching changes taking place this month, the retention of HC Gary Kubiak by the Texans seems to have flown under the radar a bit. The January 3rd announcement means that Kubiak will be coming back for his sixth season in Houston, after finishing 6-10 in 2010. And it’s a move that has left plenty of people scratching their heads as to why owner Bob McNair keep giving this guy another chance at the helm.
Let’s face it, the Texans haven’t improved even one bit during Kubiak’s tenure. For all the talent they have, Kubiak has only led his club to ONE winning season and ZERO playoff appearances. Having consistently been the fashionable pick as the next NFL franchise to break through to the upper-echelon of teams, Kubiak’s Texans always seem to fall short of expectations. But don’t take it from us. As usual, the interweb went WAY further than we ever could have imagined in breaking down Kubiak’s ineptitude while in Houston.
So sit back, relax and enjoy this handy dandy infographic here (unless you’re a Texans fan, that is), which shows just how miserable the Kubiak era has been thus far (click image to enlarge):
Apparently the Houston brain trust believes the Texans’ defense has been the problem all along, and immediately after Kubiak learned he would keep his job, he turned around and fired 4 defensive assistants – including DC Frank Bush. Now they’re looking at Wade Phillips to fill the position, in hopes that he can turn around the 30th ranked unit in the league.
So McNair says he’s giving Kubiak one more year to right the ship, and he won’t accept another season like the last. Nevermind the fact that Kubiak was the guy who put that staff together, and oversaw their day-to-day operations for the past five years. Or I guess he must have been in the other room for all those defensive meetings, huh?
This must be driving Eric Mangini crazy.
