McNair working on extension for Kubiak

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak could be around Houston for a lot longer. Team owner Bob McNair is working on an extension for the Texans head coach that will run through at least the 2013 season. Kubiak will be going into the final year of his original 5-year, $10 million deal, and after coaching the Texans to their first winning season, McNair thinks the Texans are finally on the right track to be special.

We talked to McNair about his decision.

"He's done an outstanding job. He took over a team that was 2-14 and he has turned it around. In four years, we've had only one losing season," McNair told Eyewitness Sports. "This year, we had the opportunity to win 15 out of 16 games. That's being very competitive. Now, it's not where we want to be, it's not good enough, but it is certainly a big improvement over where we were."

McNair is also extending all of Kubiak's assistant coaches. Kubiak should get a nice bump in pay and a good guess is that he'll be making somewhere in the $4 million a year range.

The Texans will make the official announcement next week.
