Following his firing as the head coach of the Houston Texans Friday, former head coach Gary Kubiak released a statement, which was posted on khou.com.
“Bob has treated me with the utmost class and respect throughout my career with the Texans. I am appreciative of him for bringing me back to Houston to coach my hometown team.”
The former head coach also said:
“I want thank the players and coaches for all the work they have put in during my years with the Texans. Though we came up short this season, the work, effort and sacrifice they gave me and this organization over the last eight seasons is not to be taken for granted.”
He ended the statement by thanking the city of Houston.
“Coming back home was a dream come true for all of us. This will always be our home. Thank you.”
Even with how this season turned out, it is still tough to bash a coach with the class of Kubiak. He and the Texans players didn’t get the job done this season, and he paid the price for that failure first, but I doubt he’ll be the last to lose a job over how this season turned out.
Kubiak stayed classy during the who ordeal that is the 2013 season, and I wish him the best of luck in his next NFL job. He deserves another coaching chance, but his time had run out in Houston.
