  • According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans aren’t interested in hiring a college head coach to fill their vacancy. 
  • Various coaches like Minnesota’s P.J. Fleck, Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald and former Ohio State HC Urban Meyer have been reported to be drawing NFL interest, but apparently not from Houston. 


  • Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson says he would be surprised if Titans OC Arthur Smith lands a head coaching job after taking the temperature of the various openings and what teams are looking for. 
  • One team has reached out to former Titans HC Mike Mularkey doing background work on Smith, though, per Paul Kuharsky.
