Texans Give Coach Gary Kubiak, GM Rick Smith Contract Extensions
Texans owner Bob McNair has rewarded coach Gary Kubiak and general manager Rick Smith with contract extensions, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Their contracts would have expired after the 2012 season. Kubiak’s assistant coaches signed extensions earlier in the offseason. McNair refused to cave in to demands from fans and many members of the media who wanted Kubiak and Smith fired after the 6-10 record in 2010, they responded by helping the Texans improve to 10-6 last season. Smith, who was hired from Denver in June of 2006, also enters his seventh season. He’s overseen the last six drafts. During his tenure with the Texans, Smith has drafted starters like left tackle Duane Brown, linebacker Brian Cushing, defensive end J.J. Watt, linebacker Brooks Reed, running back Ben Tate, safety Glover Quin and cornerback Kareem Jackson.
