Texans Chairman Bob McNair Pleased With Team Leadership Group

The Houston Texans just announced contract extensions for Head Coach Gary Kubiak and General Manger and Executive Vice-President, Rick Smith. Both men's contracts were set to expire at the end of the 2012 season.

But since the Texans had gone 2-14 prior to Kubiak and Smith's arrival in 2006, Houston has made steady prigress towards legitimacy and made the playoffs for the first time in the organizations history in 2011 while winning the AFC South title in the process.

The Houston Texans website has more on McNair's reasoning for re-signing his coach and general manager:

"We think stability is extremely important to the success of this team," Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair said. "I'm real pleased with the leadership group that we've got."

"We think that this is an outstanding group of men, and I think we're going to see a lot of success for the organization as a result of having them in place for an extended period of time," Bob McNair said.
