ESPN’s Adam Schefter Tweeted out a photo today of former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak’s full-page newspaper ad in the Houston Chronicle thanking the fans, players and organization for eight great years.
Kubiak was fired on Friday as the Texans fell to 2-11 this season, including 11 consecutive losses.
The newspaper ad said:
“THANK YOU, HOUSTON. I want t thank the players, coaches, and staff for their tireless work and commitment . And especially to the fans, you are the best in the NFL. It was an honor to return to my hometown to work my dream job. My family and I thank you for eight great years. Gary and Rhonda Kubiak.”
Though I felt it was time for Kubiak to part ways with the Texans, that was a classy move by the Kubiak’s.
The good times outweighed the bad times in the Kubiak era, as he did have two division titles and two playoff wins the two previous seasons, which a lot of NFL teams can’t say they’ve accomplished in that span.
Though his overall record in Houston was under .500, Kubiak helped bring the Texans franchise back to life, but he did all he could with this group of players.
Kubiak’s newspaper ad showed he’s a class act and he’ll rebound back in the NFL with another team. Good luck to Kubiak.
