Who is out there, who is interested in taking on the Texans coaching position? Who will they bring in, who will they retain and of utmost importance, how will it effect the team as a whole?
The best solution in this case would be for Kubiak to be retained, for Kubiak to hire a new special teams coach, possibly a new and "modernized" offensive coordinator, and to make Wade "modernize" the defense. Have them look in the mirror at the guys they let go, the guys they tried to replace them with, and to look how well the guys they let go are playing for other teams. There are many lessons to be learned here, and Bob knows this as well. Shape up or ship out after one more season.
Taking out the run-down and carbureted V8 - and freshening up with a fuel injected one is the theory here.
The problem is that there's never a proven solution.
Every time you change coaching staffs, it's a crap-shoot.
But you can't let that keep you from pulling the trigger if the guy you've got isn't getting it done.
