A month after he was fired as head coach of the Texans, Gary Kubiak is a candidate to become head coach of the Lions.
Kubiak interviewed with Detroit today, according to the Lions’ website.
Although his tenure in Houston ended badly, Kubiak did have some success with the franchise. He also fits the mold of what the Lions are looking for, an experienced head coach with an offensive background.
The Lions have previously interviewed former Colts head coach and current Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell. They are expected to interview former Titans head coach Mike Munchak.
Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, the former head coach of the Cardinals, has been reported to be the favorite of the Lions’ front office. Whisenhunt is a close friend and former teammate of Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew.
