Kubiak was the Houston Texans head coach from 2006-2013. In his eight seasons he led them to two postseason appearances and a 61-64 overall record. He is also considered a candidate for the Chicago Bears head coach vacancy.
So far the Jets have interviewed four candidates - Anthony Lynn (Jets current running backs coach), Tom Cable (Seahawks offensive line coach), Dan Quinn (Seahawks defensive coordinator) and Doug Marrone (ex-Bills head coach). Frank Reich, the Chargers offensive coordinator, is expected to interview on Wednesday. Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles has also agreed to an interview but no meeting date has been set.
No surprises here. While we're sure that Kubiak would welcome another chance at head coaching, but in his first year in Baltimore he's done a good job in building back the Ravens offense with a wildcard round win. For now his attention is only as focused as his next game as head coaching offers will come both this year and next we fully expect.
There are still plenty of teams that would be willing to wait a week to interview a candidate like Kubiak, but the read of the situation in Florham Park might be that Woody Johnson and the Jets want to make some decisions as soon as this week.
Kubiak's candidacy with the Jets must to go to the backburner as long as he and his Ravens offense remain in the playoffs.
