Alex Gibbs Leaves Texans For Seahawks

Tip o' the cap to TexansForever for alerting all of us in the Comments here to John McClain's report:

"Alex called this morning and said he had a heck of an offer from Seattle, and I wished him the best," coach Gary Kubiak said. "He did a great job for us, and he'll do a great job for them."

While many of us were underwhelmed by the Texans' running attack in 2009, the fact remains that Alex Gibbs worked miracles with the offensive line in 2008. Utilizing a rookie running back, no less. The hope is that Gibbs' two years in Houston were sufficient to rub off on John Benton & Co.

Additionally, I'd wager that Kubiak thought that Gibbs could be departing (not necessarily to Seattle, though...that strikes me as primarily a move motivated by money; not that there's anything wrong with that), and that conclusion could be one more reason Rick Dennison, with his Gibbsian zone blocking background, was offered the offensive coordinator gig. One more thing to keep an eye on--will David Gibbs follow his dad to the Seahawks too, leaving the Texans with an opening at secondary coach?

Thoughts on the Alex Gibbs Era?
