Houston Texans fourth and third-best coaching candidates:

Florida Atlantic. HinesWard. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Special Assistant to the Head Coach. 4. 2399

It’s a push come to shove, as Hines Ward has less experience as a coach in the NFL than Gannon. However, Ward was much more successful in the NFL as a player, winning Super Bowls XL and XLIII while being nominated as a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Some may even say that Ward was snubbed out of the hall.

That’s why Ward gets ranked fourth, in addition to the skills that he can use to elevate Houston’s wide receiving corps.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. JoeLombardi. 13. Offensive Coordinator. LA Chargers. 3. player

Joe Lombardi brings the incredible resume statement of coaching Drew Brees for most of his career as Brees’ quarterback coach and an offensive assistant role in New Orleans. Brees was one of the most accurate quarterbacks in NFL history, which bodes well for Davis Mills.

Lombardi also just completed his first season as the offensive coordinator for the L.A. Chargers, elevating Justin Herbert to a Pro Bowl-like level. Houston Texans fans should be excited for Lombardi to have a shot at the head coaching job.
