NFL: Texans officially extend Kubiak's contract

AP Sports Writer

HOUSTON — The Houston Texans have signed coach Gary Kubiak to a contract extension that runs through the 2012 season.

The Texans went 9-7 in 2009, the franchise’s first winning record. Houston is 31-33 in Kubiak’s four seasons, though the team is still seeking its first playoff berth.
The 48-year-old Kubiak took over the Texans in January 2006 after the team finished 2-14. His original contract was due to expire after the 2010 season.
Owner Bob McNair says he’s disappointed that the team missed the playoffs again last year. But he says the team showed “a lot of progress” and he wanted to maintain continuity by keeping Kubiak in charge.
