TEXANS HIRE NEW HC
The Houston Texans have a new head coach
According to multiple reports, the Houston Texans have hired Lovie Smith as their new head coach. The Texans have reportedly been leaning in this direction since Sunday evening, and now the move is official. Smith did a respectable job as defensive coordinator for Houston in 2021, especially considering the lack of talent on the roster.
Many believed that Josh McCown would be named the Texans next head coach, but the Texans apparently did a 180 and pivoted to Smith at some point over the last several days. Smith has been an NFL head coach for 11 seasons, nine in Chicago and two with Tampa Bay. He had a winning record in five of those seasons.
