Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Houston Texans relieved Gary Kubiak of his duties as head coach on Friday, less than 24 hours after the team was dealt its 11th consecutive loss with a 27-20 setback at Jacksonville.

Kubiak, who had guided the Texans to consecutive AFC South titles over the previous two seasons, compiled a 61-64 overall record in eight years in Houston.

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as interim head coach for the Texans' final three regular-season games.
