The Texans unusual offseason has actually taken another unusual turn, as the team has interviewed quarterback Josh McCown, who was on their active lineup at the end of the season.
The Texans announced the McCown interview today.
McCown has actually done some high school coaching, however to say hes lacking in the normal certifications for an NFL head coach would be a significant understatement. He hasnt even been even a quality assurance coach in the NFL or college football.
If McCown were to be worked with, it is thought that he would be the very first gamer to go directly from being an active player to an NFL head coach since Norm Van Brocklin, who was the Eagles quarterback in 1960 and the Vikings head coach in 1961.
That the Texans would even consider McCown suggests either that Jack Easterby is making another strange power play in the front office, or that McCown developed a close bond with quarterback Deshaun Watson, and the Texans think working with McCown would soothe Watson, who is so unhappy with the group it has fueled widespread speculation that hell hold out and demand a trade.
The Texans also revealed that they have talked to Jim Caldwell for their head coaching job.
