Coaching career:
G. Kubiak started his coaching career at Texas A&M, where he was the running backs coach for two seasons (1992−1993). He worked extensively with All−American running back Greg Hill, who was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the 1994 draft. Then he moved on the NFL.

He served as the quarterback coach for the San Francisco 49ers in 1994, guiding Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young to one of his best seasons. Young received his second NFL MVP and captured Super Bowl XXIX MVP honors by throwing a record six touchdowns in San Francisco's 49−26 win over the San Diego Chargers. Kubiak returned to the Broncos the following season when Mike Shanahan, who was previously the 49ers offensive coordinator, became Denver's head coach. In 11 seasons (1995−2005) as the team's offensive coordinator and quarterback coach, Kubiak helped lead Denver to two Super Bowl titles. In his 11 seasons with the team, the Broncos amassed 66,501 total yards and 465 touchdowns, the most in the NFL during that span. He coached 14 different Broncos that made the Pro Bowl, including running back Terrell Davis, who was named the NFL MVP in 1998. Then came the Contract with the Houston Texans.

Kubiak was named the second Head coach in Houston Texans history on Jan. 26, 2006, replacing the fired Dom Capers. In his first season with the team, Houston finished fourth in the AFC South with a 6−10 record. The Texans ended the 2007 season at 88, the first time in team history they finished with at least a .500 record. On February 2, 2010, with a year left on the original deal he signed, the Texans' signed Kubiak to a three−year contract extension through 2012, replacing the old one.
