HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans have extended the contracts of general manager Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak.

Smith and Kubiak are in the final years of their current contract. Smith's extension is for four years, which will keep him with the team through 2016.

Kubiak's is a three-year agreement which re-does the last year of his current deal and keeps him under contract through 2014. Team owner Bob McNair says he offered Kubiak a four-year deal, but he preferred to make it for three.

McNair wanted to extend the contracts of the pair after the team finished 10-6 to win its first AFC South title and make the playoffs for the first time.
