Head coach Gary Kubiak reportedly will sign a new 3-year contract with the Texans.

The Houston Chronicle has reported that head coach Gary Kubiak and the Texans have reached an agreement on a new three-year contract.

Per team policy, no deals are official until the team announces them.

The new deal would begin when Kubiak signs the contract and would run through 2012.

"I'm real excited about it," Kubiak said to the Houston Chronicle. "Bob (McNair) has always been very good to me. I respect him a great deal. I'm glad he's got the confidence in me to finish what we started when we came here. We've got a great opportunity to have something real special."

Kubiak guided the club to a 9-7 finish in 2009, the best mark in franchise history and the first-ever winning season for the Texans. His first year as head coach in 2006 saw him win six games, a year after the Texans finished 2-14. A pair of 8-8 seasons in 2007 and 2008 followed.

According to the report, Kubiak's new contract would expire after the 2012 season, the same as his assistant coaches.

A day after the Texans' win over the New England Patriots, Kubiak told members of the media that he wanted to remain with the Texans.

"I want to finish what I started," Kubiak said Jan. 4. "I signed a five-year deal when I came here; I want to be able to fulfill that contract and give (owner) Bob (McNair) and his family and this organization everything I have, so I'm going to get the chance to do that. That's what's most important right now. I'm not really worried about anything else down the road or two years from now—that's not on my plate. I'm just happy that I'm getting the chance to fulfill the contract I signed. I appreciate the opportunity and I just need to keep moving forward."
