HOUSTON (AP) - Houston coach Gary Kubiak says he expects offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan to leave the Texans if his father, Mike, becomes the head coach of the Washington Redskins.
Kubiak worked for Mike Shanahan in Denver for many years when Shanahan was the Broncos' head coach. Kubiak spoke of Kyle Shanahan's departure as inevitable -- despite Jim Zorn's firing coming just hours before.
Kubiak says that working with his son is something Mike Shanahan has "always wanted." He added that it isn't official yet but that he would start looking for a new coordinator.
Kubiak says Kyle Shanahan will be a "special" coach and that he'd "like to be a fly on the wall" when father and son coach together.
Kyle Shanahan replaced Troy Calhoun as the Texans offensive coordinator when Calhoun was hired as the head coach at the Air Force Academy.
