New information raises red flags involving Houston Texans coaching search

The Houston Texans coaching search has looked much more promising this season, with the team in the mix to hire a top candidate on the market, such as Sean Payton or DeMeco Ryans.

How quickly things can change. FS1's Colin Cowherd sent shock waves through Houston on Wednesday when he opened his show talking about dysfunctional ownership based on his recent conversation with Sean Payton. Which has everyone thinking Payton was talking about the Texans, and the chances of Houston hiring him are now slim to none.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dissect his comments and make a case that Payton could still be very interested in the Houston Texans job.

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.
