SILVER MEDAL: GARY KUBIAK
Gary Kubiak took the reigns of the Texans in 2006. He was the head coach of the franchise for eight seasons where he finished with a 61-64 record. The longest-tenured sideline boss made two playoff appearances with Matt Schaub lining up behind center. Now that’s quite the accomplishment given Schaub’s career performance.
Coach Kubiak led Houston to its first playoff appearance in 2011, and then back to playoffs again in 2012 where he also captured the franchise’s first AFC South Division Championships in both of those respective years.
While Kubiak is not looked at at the best coach in franchise history, he coached the likes of some big Texans names such as J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing, Arian Foster, and Andre Johnson. The ten-year NFL head coach put the Texans on the map and his efforts get him the silver medal in our list of top head coaches in Houston Texans history.
