ESPN SC is talking right now that he's basically locked in (Bill O Brien).

Quoting Chris Morensen, "He (BOB) is the overwhelming favorite for the HC vacancy w/ the Texans"

At the very least, there are no excuses if this doesn't work out. O'Brien being hired before any other teams even have vacancies means that he was very very likely our top choice. Let's see what Bob has learned.

Good point. A lot of NFL circles seem to be very interested in him. I know a lot of Lions fans were expecting to hire him in the offseason.

Default Re: New HC candidates

By firing Kubiak early AND immediately interviewing Lovie Smith so quickly, McNair and Smith really did accelerate the process. They put themselves into a position where they could get their guy before anyone else even gets a chance to talk to him.

That's not dumb.

Correct. That's why I've always rejected the idea that there's no benefit to firing a football coach during the season. There are a TON of benefits, as we are finding out.

Chances are O'Brien has his ear to the ground. If there's a place he'd rather be (Belichick's gotta be hanging them up sooner or later) & they're interested, he'd already know.

I think it would be funny if the Texans claimed to have interviewed Rick Smith for the HC job in order to satisfy the Rooney Rule.

The chances of the Texans hiring a black coach are like the chances of Kevin Hart playing for the Houston Rockets.

I think that Lovie Smith is the Texans second choice if they don't get a deal done with O'Brien. So, are you saying that there is a chance that Kevin Hart is on the Rockets in the next few weeks.

It's 2013 about to be 14 somebody has to be black to cover the whole issue. How often do you see the gm? Head coach and quarterback are the main faces. I do think they would draft a black qb though. Coach meh...

We will just have to agree to disagree. The Wiz is a below .500 coach and any interview with him is purely a smokescreen.
