Gary Kubiak's wife Rhonda Kubiak

Gary Kubiak's story is a testament to organizational patience. Fresh off 11 successful years as the Denver Broncos quarterback coach and offensive coordinator, the Houston Texans took a chance and made Kubiak the second head coach in franchise history in 2006.

The Texans had been mostly abysmal in their short 4 year existence, but the promise of the dominating offense that Kubiak brought to the table had fans of the team thinking optimistically. After finishing 6-10 during his first year at the helm, Kubiak then led the team to their first non-losing season (8-8) in 2008, and then again in 2009. The 2010 campaign marked their first winning season, but still no playoffs. With everyone expecting a run at the title in 2011, the Texans disappointed with a 6-10 finish. Normally this is where a poorly run franchise would panic and axe their coach, but they stood pat and it paid off. After revamping their defense, The Texans made the playoffs in 2011 before an injury to Matt Schaub derailed the team. With a healthy Schaub and even better defense, they are looking to punch their ticket to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII

Landing in Houston was also good news for Gary Kubiak's wife Rhonda Kubiak, as both had grown up about 15 minutes from Reliant Stadium (funny enough, Gary was actually a ballboy for the Houston Oilers when he was a kid). Gary and Rhonda met in 9th grade at St. Pius High School, where Gary was the school's quarterback and Rhonda was a cheerleader. They have been together ever since, save for one week in college when Rhonda broke things off because Gary was spending too much time partying. Their children (Klint, Klay and Klein - yikes) all have followed in their father's footsteps and are playing or coaching football presently.

Together, Gary and Rhonda are corporate chairs for Seeds of Hope, an organization dedicated to assisting economically challenged children attend Catholic schools. Rhonda has also worked with the Texans' general manager's wife Tiffany Smith to run the Lady Texans food drive.

    Hello Rhonda. Let me introduce myself. I am the son of Clem and Verna Bashinski of Bremond. Gary's grandmother and my grandmother were sisters. I have followed Gary's NFL career and was so happy that Houston hired him. Even though we live in Virginia my whole family,including grandchildren,are fans and supporters of the Texans. My wife laughs at me because I am always talking about Gary and bragging about him. I feel that us Pollocks have to stick together, haha. Please tell Gary how proud we are of his success and we hope that you both continue to do well. You and Gary have a beautiful family. The best to all of you.

    Hello, Rhonda, prayers for your husband, Gary and all of your family. Your work is to be commended. Who are your parents and Gary's parents? I am wondering if they were at St. Pius X on or before the dates I attended that school.

    Just wanted to let you know that we still care deeply for you and Gary. Debbie Whatley, my wife, and Terry, her brother always have good memories to share. There will be better times ahead for the two of you. Even though setbacks are hard to swallow at the time, there is always a Godly reason for them. You two are good folks and we know there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Our prayers are with you and your family. God Bless.

    Let us know where you are headed next Gary! Hated to see it end this way, but there are only 2 kinds of coaches in the NFL as Bum used to say- "Them that has been fired or going to be fired".

    To Rhonda, the world's best pie maker. Hope you've switched from Crisco to oatmeal, coconut and graham cracker crusts. A crumbly cinnamon crust works for apple pie. Grandma Kaminski's famous pecan pie is still our family favorite. Happy that you guys are back in Denver. Wish that we were as well. Miss it! All my best wishes for all good things for you and Gary. Enjoy the Rocky Mountains.

    Hi Rhonda. My brother, Scott and I played sports at MD Anderson YMCA at the same time as Gary. I think I am 3 years older than Gary, and Scott is 2 years older. I remember spending many hours playing with Gary at the Y, and also at the Kubiak's house, or at ours. We moved away from Houston in 1970 after our Dad died. My Grandmother, Willie Mae Murray lived on Moody Street, and we last spoke with Gary during a visit probably around 1979 or 1980.

    I unsuccessfully tried to congratulate Gary when he became the Texans coach. I don't do social media, so I thought this might work to try to congratulate Gary on this occasion. I live in Austin with my wife Nancy. I think Gary would remember me, so if you get this message, will you send it along to Gary? Thank you, Roddy Murray.
