There’s no need for an introduction anymore. By now, you know what we’re doing here. We are taking every single NFL franchise and ranking every head coach that they’ve hired during the Super Bowl era.

Get it?

Got it?

Now, up next……


Let’s Rank All Of The Houston Texans Head Coaches



3. Dom Capers


Years Coached: 2002-2005

Total Games Coached: 64

Win/Loss/Tie Record: 18-46


This one is going to be a short list, because as everyone knows, the Houston Texans are still a relatively new NFL franchise. The Houston Texans joined the NFL in 2002 as an expansion team and it’s usually never easy for expansion teams to have success right out of the gate. Dom Capers was saddled with the unfortunate job of being the first head coach in Texans history and trying to build an expansion team into something respectable. He was doing a decent job at first as his teams showed progress every season, but the 2-14 year in 2005 was a huge step back and the franchise decided to go in a new direction.


2. Gary Kubiak

Denver Broncos vs. Arizona Cardinals

Years Coached: 2006-2013

Total Games Coached: 125

Win/Loss/Tie Record: 61-64


Gary Kubiak was a longtime assistant with the Denver Broncos when the Texans came calling in 2006 and offered him the head coaching job. The Texans were still a relatively new franchise and it wasn’t going to be an easy turnaround for Kubiak. And it wasn’t at first. His first five seasons in Houston were extremely average as the Texans generally floated around the 6-10 & 8-8 mark. It wasn’t until 2011 when the Texans would really start to see some success under Kubiak. That year, the Texans won their first division title and also made their first playoff appearance. They were eliminated in the second-round, but they had something to build on now. The next year was even better as Houston went 12-4, won another division title, but was once again bounced out of the second-round of the playoffs. The following year was it for the Kubiak era in Houston as the Texans rolled off to a disappointing 2-11 start before the team fired Kubiak with 3 games left on the schedule. Things got better for Kubiak though as he eventually re-joined the Denver Broncos and won Super Bowl 50, so suck on that Texans fans?


1. Bill O’Brien


Years Coached: 2014-present

Total Games Coached: 80

Win/Loss/Tie Record: 42-38


He’s the only coach in Houston Texans history with a winning record (although that could change next season). He has more division titles than any other coach in Texans history. He has more playoff berths than any other coach in Texans history. Yes, it sounds weird to say…..but Bill O’Buttchin is the G.O.A.T. when you want to talk Houston Texans head coaches. Is that good or bad? You be the judge.
