Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has collapsed on the field at halftime. The head coach was taken off the field via medical personnel.
NBC said they were unsure if the 52-year old head coach had any previous medical history with his heart. They also said that Kubiak appeared to be in pain, but was awake during the freighting moment. Kubiak collapsed at the 24-yard line.
Video showed Kubiak being transported in an ambulance as NBC said defensive coordinator Wade Phillips told them was a precautionary trip. Kubiak’s family is with him at an area hospital.
Kubiak has been the Texans’ head coach since 2006.
Phillips will take over head coaching duties in the second half. Phillips was last a head coach for the Dallas Cowboys. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison will call the plays in the second half as Kubiak normally is the play caller for the Texans.
We at the Toro Times hope the best for Coach Kubiak.
