The Cowboys need offensive line help, so I would expect they will outbid the Texans for his services if he gets an offer. I still don't know why the Texans would allow him to interview if they wouldn't do the same courtesy to us for position coaches. Is his contract up?

It would be for a higher position, so I don't know if they have a choice.

They would if he (Matthews) was under contract. A few years ago with NFL teams creating positions for coordinators, Asst. HC - Offense, Asst. HC - Defense, and I'm sure a few more creative ones than that, the NFL basically said there are only two classes of coaches - Assistant Coach, and Head Coach, and unless your going from Assistant to Head, the team the coach is under contract to does not have to grant permission.

That said, I don't think his contract is up, as it was said after the 2009 season that McNair was willing to give Kubiak a three year extension, but Kubiak only took two because that's when all of his assistant coaches contracts expired. That came from McClain, so take it FWIW.

Edit: Just read the link in the other thread, and it does look like his contract is expiring soon.

Ouch! I would hate to see him leave, and especially hate to see him go to Dallas.

ANY change on the offensive side of the ball is counter productive IMO. Bruce didn't have a major position, but I would like to maintain status quo on the offense if possible. Just one less problem to address.

I think that just having a HOF'er around has got to be a benefit.

Bruce's current position is "Offensive Assistant." I think that's pretty much the same thing as "quality control" which is one step up from "unpaid intern."

I don't blame him if he interviews with another team. I'm just glad it's not the Titans.

Coaching and playing are not the samething (although 20 years as a player is beneficial)!
