The Houston Texans may continue their trend as “Patriots South” even after the firing of Bill O’Brien as coach and general manager on Oct. 5, 2020.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio is in Houston and set to have an interview for the general manager job. According to Schefter and Mortensen’s source, the interview “has real promise.”

The Texans have been targeting Caserio since 2019 shortly after they hired Jack Easterby as a character coach in April of that year. When the Texans fired then-general manager Brian Gaine on June 7, they went after Caserio, and the Patriots blocked the move.

According to Texans chairman and CEO Cal McNair, Easterby, who is the interim general manager, will revert back to football operations after the hiring of a new general manager. If Caserio comes to Houston, it may mean Easterby’s job with the Texans is safe.
