The Houston Texans have fired coach Gary Kubiak.

The team announced the decision Friday, one day after the Texans lost their 11th straight game, 27-20 at Jacksonville. Houston (2-11) played miserably and was flagged 14 times for a franchise-record 177 yards.

The 52-year-old Kubiak was hired in 2006 and was working under a three-year contract that runs through 2014. An eighth-round pick out of Texas A&M, he spent nine years as John Elway's backup in Denver and has made his mark as an offensive guru and quarterbacks mentor.

He suffered a mini-stroke during a Nov. 3 game, but had returned to the team. The Texans said defensive coordinator Wade Phillips would serve as interim coach for the rest of the season.
