Here's why Texans should be careful for what they wish for with Sean Payton

ESPN Houston's The Killer B's with Joel Blank and Jeremy Branham discuss the Texans' interest in meeting with former Saints head coach Sean Payton.

Some positives of interviewing Payton include receiving outside perspective on the state of the team, and Houston's eagerness to meet with Payton highlights the fact that this year's coaching search actually looks legitimate.

As opposed to the last two coaching hires, which featured coaches that no other team in the league had any interest in.

However, this doesn't mean that they believe Payton would be the best fit in Houston. Be sure to check out the video above to find out why.

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.
