With how the Ravens have succeeded on offense, it's no surprise that Gary Kubiak would once again be in contention for head coaching jobs.

On Tuesday morning, it was reported that he was, in fact, already up for the opening with the New York Jets, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Of course, this is just the preliminary process so Kubiak very well may not be considered after the Jets front office sifts through the candidates. But if Kubiak is up for the Jets job, he'll surely have his name in the mix with openings in Atlanta, San Francisco and Chicago as well.

Kubiak took the Texans to the playoffs in 2011 and 2012. It was considered a coup for the Ravens to get him as an offensive coordinator after Houston fired him following a disappointing 2013 season. Given his track record, you'd have to think that Kubiak will at least entertain the idea of being a head coach again.

If the Ravens want to keep Kubiak in town, they better keep winning so that interview opportunities remain limited.
