Houston Texans: Best candidates to take over as head coach after firing Bill O’Brien
1. Eric Bieniemy, Chiefs offensive coordinator
Here is the offensive coordinator that many Houston Texans fans want to see walking the sidelines as the head coach next season, and that is Eric Bieniemy.
Bieniemy alongside Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid have done great things with their offense, including winning the Super Bowl last season, and currently being undefeated in the 2020 season.
If any team knows how Bieniemy game plans with a great quarterback on his side it is the Texans, as the Bieniemy coached offense has had its way with the Houston Texans defense in the past two meetings, including embarrassing the defense in the playoffs this past January.
There is no way Bieniemy doesn’t become a head coach this offseason, and if the Texans pass on him— or can’t land him — that would be a tough pill to swallow. Bieniemy could design a great offense to help Deshaun Watson reach his full potential, and there is the fact the offense not only has David Johnson, but Bieniemy could also utilize Duke Johnson much better than he’s been used since joining the Texans.
It would also be refreshing to see a new style of play calling, and seeing how the KC offense uses their wide receivers to their advantage in a variety of plays. Could you imagine the plays Bieniemy could draw up with the speed of the Texans wide receivers have on their roster?
Bieniemy could be the head coach the Texans need, but there are some very solid candidates that also could make the Houston Texans a formidable franchise, Right now the Texans are underperforming as a team, and a new start is much needed in 2021.
