Per usual, the coaching carousel has been in full effect since the end of the regular season. The most popular target of this group proved to be former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans. Ultimately, the Houston Texans won the battle in hiring the former NFL linebacker. He now seems set on returning his former team to glory.

Prior to accepting the Texans head coaching job, Ryans was sought out by several teams. This includes the Denver Broncos.

According to reports, prior to joining the Texans, the Broncos made one final push to go after Ryans. Upon turning them down, the team then traded for former New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton.
