The Houston Texans continue to confuse and confound with a coaching search that unofficially started the moment Bill O’Brien was fired and that officially began 23 days ago. Significant questions remain, including: (1) who will they hire?; (2) when will the hire happen?; (3) will the hire be intended to placate Deshaun Watson; and (4) will it matter?
Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com reported over the weekend that it won’t matter, and that Watson wants out regardless of coach who gets the job. Still, until Watson makes it clear that he wants a trade, Watson will not have passed the point of no return.
Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, the former head coach of the Vikings, was scheduled to interview for the Houston job on Tuesday. Because Buffalo’s season has ended, Frazier could be hired now.
