Poll Question: Who should the Houston Texans hire as their new head coach?

With the NFL news of Friday being the Houston Texans firing head coach Gary Kubiak following their 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, making them a league-worst 2-11 overall, the newest question is who should replace Kubiak next season?

The Texans have a lot of time to made that choice as they have just three games remaining. There could be a potential list of candidates that could fit in very well in Houston to fix a team that currently has a losing streak of 11 games.

The “popular” name will be Jon Gruden, but there are others, including current defensive coordinator and interim head coach Wade Phillips that could fill the role.

Who do you want to be the next head coach for the team? Do you want a proven NFL coach? A college coach? Or do you want a coordinator to get their first shot at being a head coach with this team?

The possibilities are limitless, and it will be fun for the next few weeks to speculate and hear about who the Texans will choose. I’m excited for this next phase of Texans football, how about you?

Let the Toro Times know who you want to become the next head coach and why? Remember you can follow the Toro Times on Twitter @Texans_TT.

    Houston, “Wake-up”, there is no place like home grown talent…..“Bring in VINCE YOUNG”… Vince is mobile— with talent and playoff experience…. He is hungry, motivated and determined to show he can play this game at a high level…. Vince Young know how to WIN….
    Next year he will be ready to help this team go far into the playoffs and MAYBE lead them to the Super-Bowl…..

      Your comment has to be the dumbest thing I’ve read in the entire year of 2013; no wait, that is the dumbest thing I’ve read this century. Vince Young is a bigger bust than Gino Torretta. VY is, as Shirley Q Liquor would say, IGNUNT! VY can’t learn a playbook. VY can’t stay out of strip clubs. VY is not an accurrate passer. VY is BS.
      Our next QB will be, should be, I hope to be is Terry Bridgewater. We need a franchise player, not a washed up thug.

      • Vearly C. Evans Sr.

        People like you are the reason the Texans are losers…. VY is better than what the Texans have at quarterback now… He doesn’t have to be the number 1 guy, but he should be a part of the team… Kubiak was afraid to even give him a tryout…. All the Texans need is a quarterback that know how to WIN…Vince knows…

          I totally agree with Vearly plus what is all these “we” and “our” by Jimi? Jimi attacks and name calling are “the dumbest” I’ve ever read

          • Jimi_Drama

            Josh, you should learn to read before you learn to type. First off, I didn’t call anyone anything. I did, however, give an opinion about the intelligence of a comment, which I said was dumb, and it IS dumb. Furthermore, “we” and “our” are possessive pronouns, indicating that the Texans is my team (and anyone else who wants to root for them), which also indicates my investment through time and emotions (mostly anger and disappointment) and money through the purchase of tickets, memorabilia and advertisement viewing for the benefit of the organization. So that’s what’s with it… DUDE.
            Now, back to VY. He’s a joke, period. He couldn’t even make a backup role in Green Bay, Philly OR Buffalo. Why? Because he sucks, that’s why and those teams knew it… and so do “we.”

      There is no question that Vince Young has the size, the speed, and the intangibles to lead the Texans to the Super Bowl almost immediately. But there is also no question that Vince should have been drafted first by the Texans in 2007 when they had the chance. Much has changed since then, but the question remains: Does the Texans front office have the vision and the courage to make a bold move for the purpose of putting their franchise on the top of the heap.

      Vince has proven that he can win in the NFL against the most adverse circumstances, including a vindictive coach who never wanted him in the first place. Give Vince a coach who understands the unique combination of power and finesse and leadership that he brings to the table and the sky is the limit. And in that regard, almost any young coach who appreciates the wide-open play action style of high-speed improvisational football would be just fine.

      The only question is whether the owner of the Texans now has the confidence to make the right choice for the future of professional football in Houston, Texas.

    Furthermore, if the Texans don’t take Bridgewater, or a QB at all, they should take Jack Matthews at left tackle and shore up the offensive line. Whoever is at QB is gonna need protection, especiall on our right side.
