Mike Shanahan: Gary Kubiak ‘Will Prevail’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 6, 2013 – 4:58 pm



The Houston Texans relieved Gary Kubiak of head coaching duties Friday, the day after the team lost its 11th straight game.

In his final press conference of the week, Shanahan offered his support for a man who played and coached under him.

“It’s a tough business,” Shanahan said.

“Gary’s a great football coach and a great person as well. You hate to see him go through a situation like this, but he will prevail. He’s a hell of a man.”

Kubiak and Shanahan worked together for 19 years. The Denver Broncos drafted Kubiak as a quarterback out of Texas A&M in 1983, a year before Shanahan would join the team as a receivers coach. From 1985-1987, Kubiak backed up John Elway while Shanahan was the offensive coordinator.

Shanahan personally coached Kubiak from 1989 to 1991, when Shanahan served as the quarterbacks coach in Denver. Kubiak’s first NFL coaching job was tutoring quarterbacks in San Francisco in 1994, when Shanahan was the 49ers’ offensive coordinator. In 1995, Shanahan took Kubiak with him when he  took over as head coach in Denver.

For 10 years, Kubiak served as the quarterbacks coach and the offensive coordinator for the Broncos. During that span, he helped Shanahan lead Denver to back-to-back Super Bowl championships and win 114 regular season and eight postseason games.

    Shanny is a has been and only has 2 rings due 2 Elways arm. Snyder will get him at the end. His career is over after this year because his ego is 2 big . He was trying 2 end RGlll career last yr. But sorry lobster man RG has overcome ur evilness. Shanny will not get the Houston job because he is a straight up loser. Snyder is just trying 2 see how 2 void that that contract and that is about it, he does not want you around .
