The Houston Texans decided to move on from David Culley after just one season, which was a surprising move given how turbulent the season was for the franchise off the field. The status of Deshaun Watson will be the big topic of conversation surrounding the franchise, and any prospective candidate will want to know whether the quarterback will be able to play or not before accepting the job.

Reported interviews, interview requests

According to the team’s own coaching search tracker, they’ve interviewed Brian Flores, Josh McCown, Hines Ward, Jonathan Gannon and Joe Lombardi. The Texans will also likely check in with guys like Byron Leftwich, Brian Daboll, Leslie Frazier and Kellen Moore. Flores is the frontrunner due to his experience, head coaching record and reportedly closeness with Watson. However, the Texans seem to like McCown and are giving him another chance after having him interview last year. This organization has been dysfunctional at the top, so it’s never easy to tell where the decision makers are going on the coaching front.
