Default Houston Chronicle: (per John McClain's Sources) Casserly to stay as GM next year

Jan. 1, 2006, 4:30PM
Sources: Casserly to stay, Capers to exit

By JOHN MCCLAIN
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle
SAN FRANCISCO – Coach Dom Capers’ firing has been a foregone conclusion for weeks, but sources close to owner Bob McNair said today that general manager Charley Casserly will return to the Texans and remain in charge of the personnel department.

Capers’ firing will be made official Monday morning and announced at an afternoon news conference at Reliant Stadium.

Two sources said that McNair also will announce that Casserly will return, putting to rest speculation around the country that he might be fired or might ask to buy out the last year of his contract.

Keeping Casserly in the same capacity means he’ll also figure prominently in the search for Capers’ replacement, as he did when Capers was hired as the first coach of Houston's expansion team.

When asked before Sunday’s game against the 49ers at Monster Park if Casserly definitely will return, McNair declined to comment. He said he had meetings scheduled with Capers and Casserly on Monday and that it wouldn’t be appropriate to comment until after he met with them.

However, the sources close to McNair said today that the owner had already met with Casserly and informed the general manager that he wanted him to return and that Casserly had agreed. Casserly also declined comment.

When McNair hired former NFL coach Dan Reeves as a consultant to evaluate talent that had been acquired by Casserly, there was speculation within the organization that the general manager wouldn’t want to stay after the season.

McNair and Reeves had several meetings last week. Reeves has been watching tape of Texans’ games and telling McNair what he thinks about the players.

Reeves had been out of football for two years until McNair called to ask for his help. When Reeves was introduced, he said he would consider a return to coaching if the right situation came along. McNair has said time and again that Reeves is a friend and consultant he trusts to give him an honest opinion about the Texans’ talent.

Obviously, Reeves said enough good things about the talent to convince McNair that Casserly wasn’t the problem.

Once it becomes official Monday that Casserly will return and that Capers is gone, the Texans have to turn their attention to the coaching search.

The Texans are expected to interview, among others, Washington assistant head coach/defense Gregg Williams, Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, Buffalo defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, Chicago defensive coordinator Ron Rivera and possibly New York Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis.

The Texans also are expected to interview one or two college head coaches with NFL experience.

John McClain just a few weeks ago said Dan Reeves would be head coach of Texans, I think John Mclain needs to swear of writing when he celebrates New Years with just a tad too much liquid refreshment....

IF CASSERLY IS HERE NEXT YEAR I REFUSE TO GO TO ANY DANG GAMES, OR EVEN TUNE IN TO GAMES!!

CASSERLY IS THE BIGGEST EFFING JOKE FOR A GM AND SHOULD BE REPLACED YESTERDAY!

Im so tired of his usual B.S.

"Well if you draft an offensive lineman, it will take 3 years to develop him so he wont help you now."

3 years later:

"Well if you draft an offensive lineman now, it will take you 3 years to develop him so he wont help you now."

NO ******* CASSERLY!!!!! THAT IS WHY THIS WHOLE DANG CITY KNEW TO DRAFT AN OL AFTER THE 3rd GAME OF THE FIRST FREAKING SEASON!

Fire Casserly! Clean House!

This guy is has been sitting on McNair's lap too long. I don't trust him and the talent on this team is a joke.

I called it!

I had a feeling that Reeves was brought in to find out how deep McNair should cut. As much as McClain was disgusted by McNair's "slap in the face" to Casserly, I thought Reeves would be the one to save Casserly's job.

As someone who has really come to believe, over the last half of the season, that personnel was NOT the problem, I am very pleased with this outcome. Casserly has made no more mistakes than any general manager would after 4 years. He doesn't even have any first round busts as Texans' GM.

Awesome! You nailed it on the head! As long as Casserly is our GM we will be 3 years away from the playoffs. The sooner we ****-can Casserly the sooner we can start the road to recovery.

Thanks for thinking of me, but through rain or sleet or snow or Charley Casserly, I will always be there....

Given Casserly's faults, he still hasn't mooned a wedding party in Buffalo so he's not the absolute worst I've seen - although he's close. If this rumor is true, I cringe over what draft day might bring. If CC stays, the head coaching field of candidates just a lot smaller. And with Casserly only having one year remaining on his contract, what kind of loyalty will the new head coach have to his new boss unless he is extended as well?

There's a POLL on the msg board where you can say whether you think keeping Casserly is a good idea or a mistake.

Perhaps Casserly can go get another old veteran who teams are not signing to shore up our OL

...and furthermore, if my boss hires a consultant to review my performance and I don't find out about it until the day of a very public press conference announcing the same, and since I have more than an ounce of pride and nads and confidence in my ability to take my skills elsewhere, I would have the letter of resignation on the bosses desk the next day. If I take the slap in the face and play the blame game to keep my job in those circumstances, then what's that say about me?

If Casserly stays...then he needs a towel to wipe off his brown nose.

If this is true, this really sucks. We need to totally clean house. Dumb and Dumber both need to go yesterday. Major disapointment...and I agree with AJ - the list of major-league candatites just dwindled. Mcnair just doesn't get it, and I am afraid we won't go far until he actually gets a clue.

As much as I can't stand Capers, I would rather have him as coach then Casserly stay as GM. He is the reason we stink, all the draft picks given up and the so called talent he has picked up in doing so. He'll wind up selecting a punter for the first overall pick or trade it for a punter or something genius like that.

Excellent point- many other teams have failed miserably in the first round and remain pathetic for years (see: Detroit). Aside from maybe T Johnson CC hasn't missed yet in round 1
