    CASSERLY OUT IN HOUSTON

    A league source tells us that the Texans and G.M. Charley Casserly officially have parted ways after a six-year relationship, which preceded by more than two full years the team's official arrival to the NFL.

    For now, we don't know whether the move is being characterized as a resignation or a termination. Our guess is that it will be described to the media as voluntary.

    Several weeks back, we reported that Casserly would be fired after the draft. Our report prompted a strong denial from the team and from owner Bob McNair. Our prediction at the time was that all parties were hoping to preserve the appearance that Casserly's ultimate departure was not in any way forced.

    His name has been mentioned as a potential replacement for Art Shell in the league office, but we've heard that the rumors of Casserly's candidacy for that specific position trace not to the Park Avenue, but to Casserly himself.

    And based on things we're hearing it now appears that the Texans will make a run at Broncos assistant G.M. Rick Smith before moving on to other candidates. Some league insiders believe that the Broncos would never give Smith permission to leave, and other league insiders believe that the Texans don't (or at least shouldn't) want Smith given his close relationship with new head coach Gary Kubiak.

    TEXANS TO TRY TRIANGLE OF AUTHORITY?

    As Houston Texans owner Bob McNair and G.M. Charley Casserly prepare for a meeting that most likely will result in Casserly's depature from the organization, we're hearing that the plan post-Charley in Houson will be to utilize a "Triangle of Authority" similar to the arrangement that the Vikings utilized prior to the termination of director of player personnel Fran Foley.

    Per a league source, Casserly's replacement will share control with coach Gary Kubiak and V.P. of football administration Dan Ferens.

    We'd previously heard that the initial candidates to replace Casserly were former Falcons personnel guy Ron Hill, Eagles director of player personnel Jason Licht, and Bucs director of player personnel Ruston Webster. We're now hearing that Seahawks director of pro personnel Will Lewis, Broncos assistant G.M. Rick Smith, and Packers director of pro personnel Reggie McKenzie are also in the mix.

    But because the reconstituted G.M. gig in Houston (which might not even carry that same title) won't include final say on the roster, the draft, and who the head coach is (or isn't), front-office employees who are still under contract with other teams can leave only with permission.

    Hill currently is unattached, and Webster's and McKenzie's contracts expired after the April draft. We don't know the specific status of the other potential candidates, although we assume that Smith is still under contract in Denver since he only recently was promoted to assistant G.M.

    From what we've heard Casserly doesn't do anything anyway. Kubiak picks the players and Ferens negotiates the deals.

    So long Cass, we'll miss your double speak and smarmy attitude. Keep an eye out for us if you wrangle that NFL position.

    Wow. I like the pick for Williams and I like Kubiak's involvement in it. Seeing as how I am hearing mixed information on who's decision it was, I sure hope this draft wasn't Casserly's way of giving a good-bye screw to Houston.

    Oh I hate him, to tell you the truth he's the real reason why we haven't had a winning season.

    Well good luck in your life man, hopefully I'll see you cleaning up my school hallways.
