Who is Gary Wayne Kubiak?

Who is Gary Wayne Kubiak? The Professional Football world knows him as Gary Kubiak, the head coach for the Houston Texans of the National Football League. Kubiak has participated in six Super Bowls, losing three as a player with the Denver Broncos and winning three as an assistant coach with Denver and the San Francisco 49ers.

Playing career


Kubiak was born August 15, 1961.

High school

Kubiak passed for a then state-record 6,190 yards as a quarterback for St. Pius X High School of Houston, Texas where he was given the nickname "Koob". Twice named to the all-state football, basketball, baseball and track teams, he was inducted into the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame in 1999.[1]


Kubiak attended Texas A&M University under coaches Tom Wilson and Jackie Sherrill and was selected to the All-Southwest Conference team in 1982 after leading the conference in passing yards (1,948) and touchdowns (19). As a junior, he set a conference record by throwing six touchdown passes against Rice.


Kubiak was selected in the eighth round of the 1983 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, the same year quarterback John Elway was drafted No. 1 overall by the Baltimore Colts before forcing a trade to Denver. Kubiak played his entire career for the Broncos as a backup for Elway, a Hall of Famer.[2] In nine seasons, Kubiak went 3–2 as a starter, throwing for 14 touchdowns, 16 interceptions and 1,920 yards while part of three AFC championship teams.[3]

Coaching career


Kubiak began his coaching career at Texas A&M,[4] his alma mater, serving as the running backs coach for two seasons (1992–1993). He worked extensively with All-American running back Greg Hill, who was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the 1994 draft.


Assistant coach

Kubiak won his first Super Bowl serving as the quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers in 1994,[5] guiding Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young to one of his best seasons. Young received his second NFL MVP and captured Super Bowl XXIX MVP honors by throwing a record six touchdowns in San Francisco’s 49–26 win over the San Diego Chargers.

Offensive Coordinator

Kubiak went to the Broncos the following season when Mike Shanahan, who was previously the 49ers offensive coordinator, became Denver's head coach.[6] In 11 seasons (1995–2005) as the team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Kubiak helped lead Denver to two Super Bowl titles.
In his 11 seasons with the team, the Broncos amassed 66,501 total yards and 465 touchdowns, the most in the NFL during that span. He coached 14 different Broncos that made the Pro Bowl, including running back Terrell Davis, who was named the NFL MVP in 1998.

Head coach

Houston Texans
Kubiak was named the second head coach in Houston Texans history on January 26, 2006, replacing the fired Dom Capers.[7] In his first season with the team, Houston finished fourth in the AFC South with a 6–10 record. The Texans ended the 2007 season at 8–8, a non-losing record for the first time in team history. The Texans had their second non-losing season, again finishing 8–8, in the 2008 season.
The following season under Kubiak, the Houston Texans achieved their first winning season in franchise history, when they overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the New England Patriots 34-27 at Reliant Stadium, finishing the 2009 season 9-7. They miss the playoffs on a tiebreaker with the New York Jets.[8] On February 2, 2010, with a year left on the original deal he signed, the Texans' signed Kubiak to a three-year contract extension through 2012.[9]
In the 2010 season, Houston started off strong with a record of 4–2 heading into their bye week (Week 7). But Kubiak's promising campaign quickly turned disastrous as the Texans lost 8 of their final 10 games placing them 3rd in the AFC South, with a record of 6–10. Although the season was disappointing, Kubiak proved he is still, offensively, one of the elite forces in the NFL. The Texans ended up 4th in passing yards, 7th in rushing yards, and 3rd in overall yards. The 2010 Texans defense was arguably one of the worst in the league finishing last in passing yards allowed and tied for last in passing touchdowns allowed.[10]
The Texans responded to the 2010 poor defensive showing by firing defensive coordinator Frank Bush, secondary coach David Gibbs, linebackers coach Johnny Holland and assistant linebackers coach Robert Saleh.[11] Kubiak, a ball boy for beloved former Houston Oilers head coach O.A. "Bum" Phillips in the 1970s, hired long-time friend, and son of Bum, Wade Phillips to take over as the Texans new defensive coordinator on January 5, 2011.[12] Phillips became available after being fired as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys halfway through the 2010 season.[13] Phillips was allowed to bring in his own assistant coaches. The Texans signed two high profile free agent defensive backs, Johnathan Joseph and Danieal Manning, and used their first five draft picks, including two in the Second Round of the 2011 NFL Draft, on more defensive players.[14]
The 2011 NFL lockout limited the time coaches had with players in preseason, but Phillips turned thedefense he took over from 30th overall in 2010 to 2nd overall in 2011. Despite debilitating injuries to elite players including wide receiver Andre Johnson and NFL top running back Arian Foster, as well as the devastating November 13, 2011 loss of NFL Top 10 quarterback Matt Schaub for the season, the Texans secured their first AFC South Championship and first appearance in the NFL playoffs. The Texans, with rookie fifth-round selection T.J. Yates at quarterback, defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10, January 7, 2012 in the first playoff game in franchise history, with a record crowd of 71,725 at Reliant Stadium.[15]
Kubiak was named the AFC Coach of the Year by NFL 101 after leading the Texans to a 10-6 regular season record and the franchise’s first division crown, playoff berth and playoff win in 2011.[16] Texans owner Bob McNair rewarded Kubiak with a new three-year contract on June 14, 2012. Kubiak turned down a four-year deal for one that expires after the 2014 season.[17]
The 2012 Season sees the Texans start 5-0 for the first time in the franchise's history.[18] The Texans would finish the season a franchise-best 12-4 and beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Wild-Card Round for the second straight year before falling to the New England Patriots 41-28 in the divisional round.
