Default 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.

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.

Maybe if you have some sick desire to try and save dumpster fire frachises. Other than money on your contract, I can't see how they would be a better deal than Houston.

Washington?

Dan Snyder as your boss? 'nuff said on that.

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

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.

Ok, what about the Defense?

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

Default Re: Houston Texans plan to hire new coach by Tuesday

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.

If O'Brien was their top candidate & he's agreed in principal..... why wait?


The one guy we'll interview Monday will be Wade & it's going to go something like this, "Are you packed yet?"
