The Detroit Lions have apparently spread their coaching search across the entire NFL landscape as reports have now linked potential interest in Gary Kubiak:

One other name to watch with the Lions opening: Gary Kubiak

Kubiak was most recently head coach of the Houston Texans, though was fired mid-season as he appeared to have lost the team.

That said, Kubiak does have a relatively impressive coaching resume under his belt which includes the seven plus year stint as the Texas head coach along with an offensive coordinator job with the Denver Broncos and quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers.

Detroit is said to have heavy interest in San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, but Kubiak could emerge as a potential backup option if they’re unable to come to terms with the former Arizona Cardinals head coach.

For his career, Kubiak has amassed a 61-64 record season record, though, a handful of those seasons weren’t spent with increadibly sub-par rosters which were no fault of his own. He also holds a career 2-2 postseason record.
