Houston Texans plan to hire new coach by Tuesday

So, I know this is not official but I've seen a lot of those "rumors" becoming truth to be a little concerned.

I'm not an expert but I thought they would have waited untill after the playoffs in order to interview some coordinators or people that are currently working in other NFL teams.

Is there some upside to choosing the new HC this early?

I would say the upside is you can lock up your #1 choice before another team gets a shot at him.

There you go. O'Brien will be a HOT commodity when the season ends. You want him get him right now.

I would also add it gives you a jump on hiring assistant coaches.

If it's Bill O'Brien I'd say yes.

Whisenhunt?

The advantages

1) the ability to lock into your guy versus not having the full range of candidates

2) the new coach should have full ability to pick his staff before his top assistants candidates get hired.

3) Implimentation of his systems as soon as possible.

4) working as long as possible with the GM/scouting department on both NFL free agency and draft preparation.

Big con

Not being able to react if someone unexpected becomes available.

In another 48 hours there will likely be another 4-5 NFL HC openings. I am not naive enough to be believe that talks only begin after a coach is fired. I do believe that back channel discussions have been ongoing for almost all teams looking for a new head coach.

Ok, what about the Defense?

Wonder if Greg Williams would consider coming over from the Tacks?

Yeah, he must be as impressive as all reports have painted him to be to truncate the search. I thought the common ground Lovie has with Rick might sway the decision. I'm getting excited over here... in a totally manly, NFL football, Texans fan sort of way. :doot:

Yeah I would like the move, but want to see what they do with Smith. He should not have his job on Monday.

Also it leaves the Defense in limbo, since we know Wade is gone.

I wonder if Lovie would be willing to be our D coordinator if Bill O'brien gets hired as our HC

Lovie deserves and will get his own gig, imo.

I doubt it. But the rams can always trade down with another qb hungry team.

ESPN reporting Texans negotiating with Bill O'Brien and could be close to hiring him. He and Lovie Smith have been top candidates.

I have said it before and I say it again, O'Brien knows Blake Bortles. O'Brien watched Bortles beat Penn State in State College at Beaver Stadium 34-31 this year.
