Houston (CBS Houston) - In Gary Kubiak’s eight seasons as head coach of the Texans he routinely took the blame for his players poor play. Today Bob McNair decided it was time for Kubiak to take the fall for a 2-11 season and a franchise worst eleven game losing streak.

“We were so disappointed and just shocked by what has happened,” Texans Owner Bob McNair said. “This is not a long-term rebuilding process. I want to make that clear”

Wade Phillips will serve as interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Owner Bob McNair also said that Case Keenum will continue as the teams starting quarterback.

“It was difficult for me because I think so much of Gary.” McNair said. “It’s something that I didn’t want to do but you do what’s best for the organization.”

Over the next three weeks Wade Phillips and Rick Smith will be in charge of evaluating the remaining coaches and the roster. McNair also said the Texans would begin searching for their next head coach immediately.

“We would like someone who has had head coaching experience but has also had NFL experience.” McNair said.

Kubiak leaves Houston with a 61-64 record.
