It didn’t take long for former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak to return to the NFL.
The Ravens announced the hiring of Kubiak as offensive coordinator on Monday.
Kubiak, 52, was 61-64 in close to eight seasons as the Texans’ head coach (2006-2013). He was fired on December 6 after Houston lost its 11th game in a row. The Texans won the AFC South in 2011 and 2012 before sliding to a 2-14 record this season.
Before joining Houston, Kubiak was the Broncos’ offensive coordinator from 1995 through 2005.
“We are excited about the result and cannot wait to get to work,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, according to the club. “After studying many different candidates, we believe our research and our evaluation process have been as thorough as we could make them.”
The Ravens also announced the addition of former Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison as quarterbacks coach.
Kubiak replaces Jim Caldwell, who became the Lions’ head coach earlier in January.
