The Texans were smart to leak the news about Gary Kubiak’s return to Houston early. That way, today’s announcement that Kubiak would return was met with disappointed acceptance in Houston rather than red-faced rage.
Owner Bob McNair made the news official at a press conference Monday, also indicating that the team will go after a “big name” defensive coordinator. Kubiak said he’ll start talking to candidates as early as tonight, including Wade Phillips.
It’s widely believed Phillips is the favorite for the job if he wants it. The new coordinator will have to build almost an entire staff because the Texans deposed three defensive coaches Monday in addition to coordinator Frank Bush.
