Always classy: Fired Gary Kubiak places ad thanking Houston
It's obviously never easy to get fired. What's even more difficult is not being bitter after it happens. Speaking from experience, there have been more than one "I'll show you!" rants from yours truly after several minimum-wage gigs ended in an ignominious manner.
Well, Gary Kubiak isn't that type of guy. He's classy, even in defeat.
The now-former Houston Texans head coach, who was fired Friday after the team's 11th straight loss, took out an ad in Sunday's Houston Chronicle. The Houston native thanked the organization and the fans for the opportunity to work at his "dream job." Check it out:
In case you can't make out the words, here is what he said.
"Thank you, Houston. I want to thank the players, the coaches, and staff for their tireless work and commitment. And especially to the fans, you are the best in the NFL. It was an honor to return to my hometown to work my dream job. My family and I thank you for eight great years."
-- Gary and Rhonda Kubiak
Again, I can't stress enough how cool that is. Judging by his character, it's hard to imagine he'll be out of work for very long. Good for you, Gary. You are truly a better man than I.
