(Reuters) - Gary Kubiak became the first coaching casualty of the National Football League's (NFL) 2013 season as the Houston Texans fired him on Friday with the team in the midst of a franchise-record 11-game losing streak. The decision comes a day after Houston lost to Jacksonville and fell to an NFL-worst 2-11, a huge swing from last season when they went 12-4 and won the AFC South Division. "This has been a very disappointing year," said Texans chief executive Bob McNair. To have this string of losses is unacceptable." Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as interim coach for the Texans' final three games of the 2013 season, the team said in a statement.
