Ken Whisenhunt
San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator/Super Bowl head coach

He’s a really good fit for the Texans as he could work wonders for this offense. He led the Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl with Kurt Warner as his quarterback, and look at how he’s brought the Chargers’ offense back this season.

Give Whisenhunt a top draft pick where he could draft a quarterback, and it would be very interesting to see what he could do with the offensive weapons of the Texans that includes Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, Owen Daniels and DeAndre Hopkins, if the offensive line can provide the proper protection and those players can stay healthy.

Like I said, it is early, but like the rest of the men on this list, they all deserve a look at taking over. It just depends on what direction the Texans want to go in next season … offensive or defensive focused.
