Houston Texans: 5 possible general manager candidates to replace Brian Gaine
2. Nick Caserio
This could be the toughest interview of all to achieve, and that is Nick Caserio of the New England Patriots, who is all but the general manager of that franchise (he is listed as the Director of Player Personnel) but has never been given that title.
When the Texans hired Brian Gaine in 2018 ,they were denied a request to interview Caserio, and that could possibly happen once again.
Ian Rapport of NFL.com had the following Tweet about Caserio and the Texans on Friday night:
One thing that is always interesting with anyone who leaves the Patriots is the question of will they and can they be as successful without the Patriots organization behind them? Will they be as successful without Tom Brady and Bill Belichick at their disposal?
A very big positive of Caserio is in his Patriots bio, it says the following about his abilities:
"“Caserio is also credited as one of the architects of the Super Bowl XLIX, Super Bowl LI and Super Bowl LIII champion New England Patriots, the Super Bowl wins in his current position.”"
Caserio seems to be very important to the Patriots as he’s not been given the OK to have general manager interviews in the past, and that above statement seems to be the reason why.
Many are reporting that the Texans want this interview and will make a formal request. For the sake of the Texans, it would be a good day if they just got to speak with Caserio and see how he could help the Texans franchise move forward with more success in building their roster.
