The Houston Texans have identified a candidate for their general manager vacancy.

According to Adam Schefter from ESPN, the 4-9 AFC South club is set to interview current ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Louis Riddick for the team’s general manager job on Friday.

Riddick is a fan favorite among football scouts and game tape critics. The former NFL safety hasn’t been in an NFL front office since 2013 when he was the director of player personnel for the Philadelphia Eagles from 2010-13.

The 51-year-old got his start with Washington in 2001 as a pro scout. In 2005, Riddick was named director of pro personnel, and Washington made the playoffs that year and later in 2007, Riddick’s final year at that post. In 2008, the Eagles hired him as a pro scout, and in 2009 he was promoted to assistant director of player personnel.

The Texans fired coach and general manager Bill O’Brien on Oct. 5. Executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby has served as interim general manager since.
