The Houston Texans have completed an interview with Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell according to a report.
Early critics of the Houston Texans’ handling of Josh McDaniels in their all-important head coach search - including me - offered one scolding observation: Given GM Nick Caserio’s long-time friendship with McDaniels, and their shared New England back ground … Why has he given the Texans the stiff-arm? And now maybe we know: To heck with “Patriots South ; why not hold out for the Las Vegas Raiders to morph into “Patriots West ? an owner in Mark Davis willing to spend big for the right coach.
DeMeco Ryans, a player on those Texans teams when Shanahan and McDaniel were on the sidelines, has the 49ers ranked as one of the top defenses in the league in his first year as defensive coordinator. Ryans recently interviewed for the Minnesota Vikings head coaching job and is expected to also interview with the Las Vegas Raiders at some point next week. Oddly enough, the Texans, who also are looking for a head coach, haven’t asked to interview either McDaniel or Ryans.
