Ravens hired Gary Kubiak as offensive coordinator.
It's a strong hire for one of the NFL's top coaching staff-front office combinations. Kubiak is bringing along Rick Dennison from Houston as quarterbacks coach. A run-first mind, Kubiak employs a Shanahanian zone-blocking scheme and will likely scale back Joe Flacco's pass attempts dramatically after he set a career high with over 600 in 2013. The Ravens need to upgrade their up-front talent and potentially shake up their running back corps. It's worth noting Bernard Pierce drew Arian Foster comparisons coming out of Temple two years ago. A la Owen Daniels/Garrett Graham, look for Dennis Pitta's red-zone opportunities to increase, assuming the Ravens re-sign him. Jan 27 - 1:16 PM

Gary Kubiak has reportedly emerged as the favorite for the Ravens' offensive coordinator job.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Ravens are trying to assemble a "star-studded" offensive coaching staff that includes Kubiak, Rick Dennison and Kyle Shanahan. That trio worked together in Houston from 2006 until Shanny left in 2010, producing rapid results. The Texans were 28th in offense in 2006, 14th in 2007, 3rd in 2008 and 4th in 2009. In-house wide receivers coach Jim Hostler is the other remaining known candidate besides Kubiak.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports "it is considered unlikely" that the Browns will hire Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator.

Kubiak is apparently leaning toward taking a year off, because offensive coordinator vacancies around the league are drying up fast. Cleveland just hired Mike Pettine as head coach on Thursday, so to expect a next-day coordinator hire would be unrealistic. NFL Network reported early Friday that the Browns have "interest" in Kubiak, but no interview has been scheduled yet.
Jan 24 - 1:22 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are interested in ex-Texans coach Gary Kubiak for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

New coach Mike Pettine and Kubiak have never worked together in the past. As RapSheet points out, Kubiak's fit in Cleveland would make some sense considering the Browns have repeatedly been linked to Texans free-agent running back Ben Tate. Kubiak's addition would be welcome news to Josh Gordon, as well. Andre Johnson was force-fed the ball in Houston.
Jan 24 - 11:57 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports ex-Texans coach Gary Kubiak is "high on the Dolphins' radar" for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Kubiak has worked with John Elway in the past but seems to favor a run-heavy, ball-control offense. He's not the most imaginative playcaller but gets the most out of his players and would be good for Ryan Tannehill and Lamar Miller, among others in Miami. Kubiak interviewed for the Lions' head-coaching job Tuesday. He figures to find a job somewhere for the 2014 season.
Jan 8 - 5:04 PM

FOX Detroit reports the Lions interviewed ex-Texans coach Gary Kubiak for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

The Detroit Free Press reported earlier Tuesday that Kubiak was a "name to watch" for the Lions' opening. Kubiak was a workmanlike coach during his (almost) eight years in Houston, but took six seasons to earn his first playoff berth. He struggled for consistency on defense, and bungled the Texans' 2013 quarterback situation. The Lions are looking for an experienced hand to guide them over the hump, but Kubiak would be a thoroughly uninspiring hire. That being said, Kubiak would certainly instill more discipline than reckless Jim Schwartz did, and would be an able tutor for stubborn franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Jan 7 - 5:51 PM

The Detroit Free Press reports Gary Kubiak is "one other name to watch" as a potential head-coaching candidate for the Lions.

The Lions seem intent on bringing in a retread who can whip the current roster into shape. This team is built to win now, and GM Martin Mayhew and president Tom Lewand want someone who can take the Lions to the next level. Kubiak has an offensive background and spent 11 years under Mike Shanahan with the Broncos before becoming the Texans head coach in 2006.
Jan 7 - 3:06 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bucs are "considering" Gary Kubiak for their head-coaching opening.

Tampa seems hellbent on hiring a retread head coach to replace Greg Schiano, also flirting openly with Lovie Smith. The Bucs fired GM Mark Dominik on Monday and don't even have a general manager to run the coaching search yet.

Texans fired head coach Gary Kubiak.

SI's Peter King was the first to mention Kubiak could be getting the ax on Friday. The Texans started the season 2-0, but they've dropped 11 consecutive games and hold the league's worst record. Kubiak signed an extension last year, and the team got off to an 11-1 start before collapsing down the stretch. That carried over into 2013, and Kubiak's offense showed very little creativity. The team has also dealt with injuries to key players. Kubiak was hired prior to the 2006 season. He amassed a 61-64 record, which includes his 2-2 mark in the playoffs. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will be the interim head coach.

SI's Peter King expects the Texans to fire coach Gary Kubiak on Friday.

King doesn't do much reporting anymore, so when he does say something we pay attention. He doesn't just throw stuff against the wall. Kubiak is scheduled to meet with the media at 11 AM local time. The Texans have lost 11 games in a row and currently hold the worst record in the league. The offense has become one of the most bland in the league -- it always has been, but it's really shown in 2013. Kubiak has a career 63-66 record, including the playoffs, as Houston's head man. He took over in 2006.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Texans coach Gary Kubiak is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Per Schefter, Kubiak is "building up his hours this week." The Houston Chronicle reported last week that Kubiak was expected to return against Oakland. It's good news for first-year starter Case Keenum, who will have his play-caller back after an uneven game against Arizona in Week 10.

Texans named defensive coordinator Wade Phillips their interim head coach.

Coach Gary Kubiak suffered what doctors are calling a mini-stroke last Sunday night at halftime. There's nothing "mini" about any medical matter, but Kubiak has been released from the hospital and is fully expected to make a full recovery. The Houston Chronicle previously reported Kubiak is expected to return for Week 11. Phillips, a former head coach, will handle duties this week in Arizona.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak has been released from the hospital.

"Doctors have told me I will make a full recovery but we have not determined when I will be cleared to return to the office," Kubiak said in a team statement. "Again, thank you for the support and concern." Although Kubiak says he's not sure when he'll be back, the Houston Chronicle reports he's expected to return for Week 11. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will lead the Texans against the Cardinals this weekend.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak has been cleared to leave the hospital and return home.

There are conflicting reports out there on whether Kubiak sustained a "mini-stroke" or not. Either way, it's a fantastic sign that he's already out of the hospital after collapsing during Sunday night's loss to the Colts. In fact, he's expected to miss just one week of work and then return to the team ahead of Week 11. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will guide the Texans as they prepare for the Cardinals this week.

According to ESPN, Texans coach Gary Kubiak was treated with IV medicine designed to break up clots consistent with people who suffer strokes.

In a scary scene at halftime of the Sunday Night Football game, Kubiak collapsed in pain and was taken via ambulance to the hospital. It's still unclear exactly what happened, but he reportedly did not sustain a heart attack. Per Adam Schefter, Kubiak is being treated with Tissue plasminogen activator to break down his clots. He'll be with medical personnel for at least the next 24 hours. "Gary is alert, coherent and in good spirits. He is continuing to be evaluated and monitored," GM Rick Smith said.
