Another day in the life of the Houston Texans. As the NFL heads towards the Super Bowl, the head coaching candidates are beginning to clear for the only team left to hire one. One of those coaches, however, was not Eric Bieniemy, as he continues to coach. Will Houston wait on him to finish his season?
There is news on that front as one coach gets a second interview, and as the Texans bring in another to interview as well.
Texans set for second interview with Leslie Frazier
After suffering a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, the Buffalo Bills have now been eliminated from playoff contention. The Texans did not waste any time getting their defensive coordinator in Leslie Frazier in for his second interview to potentially become the next head coach of the organization.

Arian Foster gives his take on Deshaun Watson
As the Deshaun Watson saga marches forward, former Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster has his own take on the situation. On SportsRadio610, Foster was rather blunt on his stance with Watson and the way the organization is handling it:
"“He’s a generational quarterback… you are not going to have another quarterback like him for the next decades. You bend to his will… If you have that kind of generational talent, get him involved… But if they are smart, they will bend to his will… You can have five first round picks, and you’re not going to get a talented quarterback like that… You already have one, so why not invest in the one you’ve got.”"
More craziness regarding Jack Easterby
One more quote has come out about Executive Vice President Jack Easterby from a source well connected in Houston. After he usurped the hire of now general manager Nick Caserio, one person close to the organization has stated:
"“The guys I trust, including a guy big in Houston, he wants to kill him,” a well-connected league source told FanSided. “He goes ‘this guy is a f***ing idiot. He’s got the owner’s ear and he’s going to ruin the whole organization.’”"
We all know how this is going to inevitably land, with the firing of Easterby. The question, however, is if the McNair family has the awareness to do so sooner rather than later.
