The Texans have clearly interviewed a unique candidate for their head coach position: Josh McCown.
As Houston Texas As they continue to search for the right head coach candidate to join and help this messy team move forward, they’ve brought in someone who probably won’t be any fan’s first choice: Josh McCown.
McCown, who doesn’t have meaningful coaching experience on his résumé but is a good fit for an assistant coach position, has now interviewed for the Texan head coach position twice. Once when Bill O’Brien left town. And now with the current vacancies.
It’s not going to be something that cements or inspires a bored and tired Texas fan base. It’s probably a safe bet that people won’t get excited about this interview.
Houston Texans interview Josh McCown for head coach position
McCown does not have significant coaching experience. He has spent a lot of time in the NFL and has an experienced football mind who has seen the highs and lows the league has to offer. His experience is valuable, but it doesn’t quite make him a good fit for the head coach position.
That’s especially true for a franchise as messy and unsuccessful as Texas.
After moving on from David Culley, who wasn’t really given many opportunities and also probably wasn’t the kind of guy who could turn the Texans into a winning team, not necessarily a bad idea if interviewing around and bring in as many possible candidates to try and find the right one.
Thinking outside is not bad.
But thought through in terms of bringing in a reserve midfielder who is likely to be interviewed because he is a friend of the team. executive vice president of football operations?
That doesn’t seem like an inspiring move.
Texans still need to find out what’s going on with Deshaun Watson. They are still trying to put together a consistent offense. There are several other list issues that need to be addressed.
This team is a mess.
And it doesn’t seem like McCown is the right person to lead this team as it works through all of that.
Perhaps bringing in McCown as an assistant coach could help with the offensive problems. The team interviewed him twice. Those at the previous office were familiar with what he brought to the table. Maybe that’s what they were thinking and why they cast him back to int. Maybe that familiarity can help the next head coach assemble his staff.
Or maybe this group continues to do moves that force people to scratch their heads.
