Marc Lubick, 32, was the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at Colorado State University.
The Texans have hired Marc Lubick as an offensive assistant, the team announced today.
Lubick, 32, was the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at Colorado State University. He replaces offensive assistant Matt LaFleur, who left the Texans this offseason to become the quarterbacks coach of the Washington Redskins.
From 2005-07, Lubick coached Colorado State's wide receivers, a group that included Texans wide receiver David Anderson. Anderson was a seventh-round draft pick by the Texans in 2006.
Lubick began his coaching career as a defensive student assistant at Colorado State in 2000. After graduating from the school in 2001, he became a graduate assistant who worked with the CSU wide receivers. Lubick spent two seasons with the St. Louis Rams as a scouting assistant from 2003-04.
Lubick's father, Sonny, was the head coach at Colorado State for 15 seasons (1993-2007). During that time, he coached four players currently on the Texans' roster: Anderson, guard Mike Brisiel, tight end Joel Dreessen and defensive end Jesse Nading. Texans offensive line coach John Benton was on Sonny Lubick's CSU coaching staff for nine seasons (1995-2003).
Marc Lubick played defensive back at Montana State from 1996-99, earning academic all-conference honors three times. He played quarterback and defensive back at Fort Collins (Colo.) High School.
According to his bio on the Colorado State website, Lubick underwent a successful but difficult year-long battle with a rare form of cancer in 2006, fighting through months of chemotherapy and inspiring his family, players and fellow coaches.
