Richard Smith/Hoke/Franklin - fired!!!
 
Front page of Chron sports page!

Quote:

The Texans have fired defensive coordinator Richard Smith, defensive backs coach Jon Hoke and defensive line coach Jethro Franklin. Smith, who was under fire from fans and media this season, was the coordinator during Gary Kubiak's first three seasons.

Nothing new here...lol

It was past time for a change.

so....it looks like we will promote in house since Bush and a few other coaches are still around. Most coordinators want to bring in their own staff.

I wonder what the reasons were for firing Hoke and Franklin?

Jay Glazer calls it.

It feels much better to be rid of that guy.

I'll give you two...the line has been awful and the secondary has been awful.

I figured Bush would still be around, seemed like that was Kubes original intention as a DC/support staff since day 1.

If my mind serves me correctly, Arizona blocked us from talking with him.

Ok, I can remove my Fire'em All Avatar, as it was based on what Kubes would do with the DC. :)

you are correct. I hope we have fewer chiefs and more indians with our next staff. Kubiak did state that Rhodes will be retained for a second season though...perhaps he is Hokes replacement.

My happiness knows no bounds (as long as I stay out of the NSZ, that is).

Good riddance to Smithy boy.

Id imagine well be welcoming Frank Bush as our new defensive coordinator, but I guess well have to wait on that. Im sure the Texans management wants to weigh their options before making that decision.
