We can now stop with all the speculation, as the Houston Texans have hired DeMeco Ryans to be their next head coach, according to multiple reports.

Ryans completed his second interview with the team on Tuesday, and just a few hours later the deal got done. Adam Schefter is reporting that the contract is for six years.

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

This hire is exactly what Texans fans need right now. It's been a rough ride for Houston fans since former coach/GM Bill O'Brien dismantled the team with a series of head-scratching moves that put the team in cap hell and left the franchise with very little draft capital.

Now, the Texans have a respected head coach in place, are Top 10 in cap space, and have multiple first round picks in the next two drafts. What a day for Texans fans!
