There’s one head coaching job left in the NFL, and it’s the job that many “insiders” say is the least desirable in all of the NFL.
That job is down in Houston with the Texans, a team that seems to be in the headlines daily between the coaching search and the drama with unhappy quarterback DeShaun Watson.
It sounds like the Texans are down to three potential candidates for their head coaching spot: Buffalo defensive coordinator/assistant coach Leslie Frazier, Ravens assistant head coach/wide receivers coach David Culley, and Chiefs highly-praised OC Eric Bieniemy.
If the Texans want, they could hire Frazier or Culley today, but when it comes to Bieniemy, they will have to wait until after Super Bowl LV a week from Sunday.
Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White spoke to the Buffalo News via Pro Football Talk, and while he knows that Frazier would make a great coaching hire, he also would hate to lose him as a part of the Bills coaching staff.
“I don’t like that idea at all,” White said.
“Happy for him, happy that he’s getting an opportunity because he’s an amazing coach. He’s been a great, great asset for myself. I can speak from my personal experience with him, playing the position that I play and to have a defensive coordinator to have played that position, won a Super Bowl playing that position.
“That type of expertise, you don’t get that every day from a defensive coordinator in an organization, a guy that won the Super Bowl in your position.
“He’s the type of guy that takes the time to develop the player every day. I’ll be definitely an endorsee for him to get a job, but hopefully he’ll be back with us next year because he’s definitely a big part of our success on defense.”
After the last few years with Bill O’Brien and then Romeo Crennel on an interim basis this past season, the one thing that Houston needs moving forward is stability.
Frazier has been a head coach in the past (21-32 in four seasons in Minnesota) and is 61 years old with plenty of life experience, both of which could be major selling points for Houston.
One way or another, it should all get sorted out in the next few weeks, and all the coaching vacancies for this NFL offseason would finally be wrapped up.
