After putting together a great offense for the Baltimore Ravens team, Gary Kubiak has been a target for teams that need a head coach.

Despite numerous requests for head-coaching interviews, Baltimore Ravens OC Gary Kubiak has decided to stay in Baltimore rather than interview for a head coaching job.
“It is flattering and humbling to be invited to interview for a number of NFL head coaching positions, and I greatly appreciate these opportunities,” Kubiak said following the team’s loss to the New England Patriots in the NFL Divisional Playoffs. “But I have decided to stay with the Ravens. This is a special organization and we, like (John) Harbaugh says, are building something great. I want to be a part of that and contribute in whatever ways I can.”
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Kubiak was a potential candidate for the New York Jets’ opening, and the Chicago Bears reportedly were very interested as well.
In eight seasons with the Houston Texans, Kubiak went 59-53 in his first seven – leading the Texans to their first winning season, first playoff appearances, and first division titles in franchise history. But a 2-11 start in 2013 resulted in his firing.
The Ravens signed Kubiak as their offensive coordinator in the 2014 offseason. Under Kubiak, the team set a franchise record with 409 points scored during the season – all while missing former Pro Bowl RB Ray Rice.
