Here's a name that you'll love: Mike Shanahan.

Clayton on ESPN said that if the Redskins fire him, he would move to the top of the Texans list.

No!!!!

Looks like the list should be narrowed down to Gruden, cowher, smith. Gus Malzahn head coach, Auburn. Or David Shaw, head coach, Stanford.

Auburn sure has been impressive this year. I still want cowher.

Put me down as wanting a different offensive philosophy. Shanahan's teams have the same offensive problems that Kubiak's do.

McNair was very specific in his comments about hiring someone with NFL head coaching experience, not a coordinator or a college coach.

Nah. If we have a first pick there is no way any HC doesn't bring in a new QB imo. Lovie Smith will not ride with Keenum. New coaches like their own guys, not the hand-me-downs of the man who was fired. Unless Wade Phillips becomes the new HC I believe we will be picking QB for sure now.

Default Re: New HC candidates

There are going to be a lot of NFL head coaching jobs up for grabs this offseason. I'm glad Houston is getting a head start in the race for good candidates, but I'm also concerned about this team getting used by a candidate to bid up their own value on the market with so many open jobs.

So regardless of who comes in for an interview, I won't get my hopes up. But who wouldn't want this job? In Houston you can suck as a head coach for a good long while before the term "accountability" even comes up. Today's 2014 head coach would be seeing his first hot seat no sooner than 2018.

No I don't believe he ever said it wouldn't be a college coach. Just said needs head coaching experience.

"Head coaching experience" is pretty broad. I like that.

Bradley in Jax and McCoy in SD seem pretty sharp. I don't think either has been a head coach other than high school (if that).

From what I heard, he worded it like this: the candidate should have NFL experience and should have head coaching experience.

It doesn't sound like the HC experience necessarily has to be at the NFL level as long as they have some other NFL coaching experience. So I think that leaves it open for guys like Shaw or O'Brien but I think we ARE going to focus on coaches with previous NFL HC experience.
