Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak is with his family and under the care of physicians and staff at a local hospital, the team announced.
Kubiak experienced dizziness and a light-headed feeling, causing him to stop and kneel down as he was on his way off the sidelines for halftime. The Houston Texans sports medicine staff and team doctors attended to Kubiak immediately before he was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
“Our primary concern is of course with Gary’s health and well-being,” Texans general manager Rick Smith said. “There have been so many people throughout the city and across the country that have reached out to express their love and support and we are thankful for everyone’s thoughts and prayers. Gary is alert, coherent and in good spirits. He is continuing to be evaluated and monitored.”
Kubiak went through a battery of tests at the hospital. Kubiak was admitted overnight and will remain with medical personnel for at least the next 24 hours.
“On behalf of the Kubiak family and the Houston Texans, we appreciate the concern of fans, media and the National Football League,” the Texans said in a statement. “We are asking fans and media to respect the privacy of the Kubiak Family. We will release further details as they are made available.”
