Lowly Texans sack head coach Kubiak


The Houston Texans fired Gary Kubiak on Friday, parting ways with the only coach to lead the team to the playoffs.

The team announced the decision one day after the Texans lost their 11th straight game, 27-20 at Jacksonville, a stunning fall for a team that expected to make a Super Bowl run. Houston (2-11) played miserably and was flagged 14 times for 177 yards.

The Texans said they couldn’t wait any longer to make a change.

“What’s taken place with this organization is unacceptable,” general manager Rick Smith said.
