Kubiak wants Holliday to prove "he knows what the hell he's doing"

Trindon Holliday is one of the fastest football players ever, a sprinter who ran the 100-meter dash in 10.02 seconds at the NCAA track and field championships while competing for LSU.

Holliday was able to get by on pure speed in college, but now that the Houston Texans have drafted him, Texans coach Gary Kubiak wants him to know that he’s going to have to learn the nuances of being a wide receiver.

“He is what we thought he was as far as his talent and all that,” Kubiak said at today’s organized team activities. “But in this league he’s going to have to play wide receiver.”

And how does Kubiak think Holliday looks running routes, catching passes and doing everything else a wide receiver has to do? Not so good.

“He’s got a long, long way to go,” Kubiak said. “He’s way behind. He’s got a long way to got to prove to this team he knows what the hell he’s doing. So it’s probably not a good day to ask me that question.”

Maybe Holliday will prove himself in training camp and the regular season, and that will be a better time to ask Kubiak that question. But the way Kubiak sounded today, Holliday might be looking for work at the start of September.

    Thanks for the link to the article @aj
    Best line from it… “Nick’s a backend guy”
    …in reference to Nick Saban.
    Got that right!

    Did you see the Houston Offense last year? The dude is an offensive coach, and they had a beast offense. Pretty sure the guy is doing a pretty good job.

    Hey saints #12
    Who is the bigger “dunbass”?
    The coach who hopes a player turns out to be good?
    The “dunbass” who calls him a “dunbass” but can’t correctly spell dumbass?

    my money for the ‘biggest dumbass’ involved in this whole scenario is on Les Miles…where do I pick up my winnings?

  10. Kay Bee says: Jun 2, 2010 12:57 AM

    Yeah coach him up for the next head coach…Kubiak will be gone after this season.

    A 5’5 WR? Kubiak is really good at his job. LMAO.

    i don’t think Jacoby Jones would be too happy if Holiday is the one returning kicks

  13. TMac48 says: Jun 3, 2010 10:55 AM

    They’ll cut Andre Davis and keep Holliday. Davis hasn’t contributed at reciever in a couple of years and will make too much money just to return kicks…something a much cheaper Holliday will be able to handle just fine.
