It’s been a rollercoaster ride for the Houston Texans head coaching search.

If you happened to be up late on Sunday night, you saw the chaos of what was happening with Houston Texans. First, Jonathon Gannon was told he wouldn’t be the head coach. Then, a few hours later, Josh McCown was also informed of the same fate.

Then, the QB coach for the Houston Texans, Pep Hamilton, got a midnight request for an interview from the Jacksonville Jaguars. If that wasn’t enough, Nick Caserio threw the world a curveball when word got out that Lovie Smith was going to basically be considered a finalist for the head coaching role.

Texans Twitter was ablaze with questions, confusion, and exhalations as at least McCown was out. With the team now down to deciding between two defensive gurus, what would be the pros and cons of hiring either candidate?

It’s taken the Houston Texans this long to get here, so who knows how long this “evaluation period,” if you will, is going to last. It’s been repeatedly said that the Texans can’t mess this hire up, but that was with McCown in the mix.

With that being said, we’ll take a look into both Flores and Smith’s careers to see what they bring to the table.
