Louis Riddick is one of the top football minds on broadcast TV and the Pennsylvania native is currently an analyst for ESPN on Monday nights, but constantly has his name mentioned when a front office or personnel job opens up around the league.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the former Pitt and NFL safety will interview for the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions’ general manager openings.

Riddick will interview with the Texans on Wednesday, before meeting with the Lions later in the league.

With Deshaun Watson at quarterback, Houston will definitely be one of the desired landing spots for head coaching or front-office candidates.

Riddick started out as a scout in 2001, before being named pro personnel director for the Washington Football Team.

He later joined the Eagles and was promoted to pro personnel director.
