Quentin Grimes is officially back home.

The former College Park star signed with Houston on Friday, which was formally announced by the university the same day. Grimes played his freshman season at Kansas.

Grimes will have to sit out the 2019-2020 season due to NCAA Transfer rules but will have three years of eligibility remaining once he starts playing games again as a redshirt sophomore for the 2020-2021 season.

"One of the things I have always liked about Quentin is his basketball IQ and his ability to make plays. Everyone knows he can score, but one of his biggest strengths is being a playmaker," University of Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said in a release. "Quentin is pretty good at a lot of things but what he does really well is think the game. That's how he is going to help us. I am excited to welcome Quentin and his family to Houston Basketball."

The Houston Texans have been busy interviewing coaches over the last few weeks, and just this week, the team held second interviews with Giants OC Mike Kafka and Broncos DC Ejiro Evero. The Texans have also interviewed Los Angeles Rams tight ends coach and assistant head coach Thomas Brown, Sean Payton, Lions OC Ben Johnson, Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon, and Eagles OC Shane Steichen. Johnson has taken himself out of the mix and is returning to Detroit.

But according to a new report from Ian Rapoport, the Texans may already have their minds made up about their next head coach.

Former Texans linebacker and current 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans appears to be the top candidate for the Texans, and he is reportedly interested in the position, with a second interview likely to take place next week.

Ryans has been the defensive coordinator for the 49ers over the last two seasons. San Francisco was the best defense in the league in 2022.

Ryans is a popular pick for the position in Houston, and fans will be super excited if he eventually gets the job. Let's hope Rapoport's sources are correct, and the Texans have their new head coach lined up.
