FOX Sports Jay Glazer tweeted this Friday morning:
"Texans assistants have been informed by Coach (Gary) Kubiak that he has been fired. Coach told them he loves them but has been let go."
Kubiak has been Houston's head coach since 2006 and, prior to today, had been presiding over a team that had lost 11 consecutive games. The Texans' 2-11 record is the worst in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as interim head coach.
The Colts traded a first-round pick for running back Trent Richardson back in September. Today, Richardson will be second string against the Titans. NFL Network's Michael Silver was first to report that running back Donald Brown will get the start instead. Since Richardson became a Colt back in Week 3, he has averaged just 2.8 yards per carry, rushing for 287 yards in nine games. Brown has averaged 5.7 yards per carry this season.
