The Houston Texans are indirectly saying to the world that they want Josh McCown as the team’s next head coach.
Bless Nick Caserio and Cal McNair, as they must see something in Josh McCown that others don’t. However, on Friday afternoon, a second interview was given to McCown, making him the early favorite for the job, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
What started as something that one only thought was due diligence has now morphed into something of a Jack Easterby and Caserio collaboration. McCown has only coached at the high school level- nothing higher than that. However, McCown does have 16 years of journeyman quarterback experience in the NFL.
McCown’s experience as in the NFL has to be what the Houston Texans brass is obsessed with, as there isn’t much else that McCown brings to the coaching side of things.
The Houston Texans have set the rebuild mode to “Chaos,” and most fans will not like it
It’s been clear that Houston needs to get this coaching hire right; otherwise, they risk spurning more fans from coming back to games and supporting the team. On the other hand, at least David Culley had years of being an NFL assistant, and while Culley made some questionable decisions, most of the NFL world agreed that Culley got a raw deal.
If Houston got as much heat as they did for even interviewing Hines Ward, imagine what will happen if the Texans actually hire McCown. It would be an unprecedented hiring in the NFL, and many questions would start popping up about how many candidates were either passed up or ignored in the search.
If McCown is hired, all Texans fans can do is give him a chance, as infuriating as that is when guys like Brian Flores, Eric Bienemy, and even Brian Daboll are still out there on the market.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the Houston Texans may need their prescription fixed.
