Coach Gary Kubiak has agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Texans, he told the Houston Chronicle on Tuesday.
Kubiak reportedly agreed to a deal that will pay him through 2012, along with his assistant coaches.
“I’m real excited about it,” Kubiak said. “Bob (McNair, the Texans’ owner) has always been very good to me. I respect him a great deal. I’m glad he’s got the confidence in me to finish what we started when we came here. We’ve got a great opportunity to have something real special.”
Kubiak could have entered the 2010 season with only one year left on the five-year, $10 million contract that he signed with the Texans in 2006. And up to two months ago, there were questions about whether or not Kubiak even would be back in 2010, but the Texans finished a franchise-best 9-7 and just missed the playoffs.
Kubiak is 31-33 in four seasons with the Texans and has helped Matt Schaub develop into one of the AFC’s better quarterbacks. Schaub was selected as the Pro Bowl MVP on Sunday after he passed for 189 yards and two touchdowns in the all-star game.
