League sources have told Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports that Patriots executive Nick Caserio is still “very likely” to join the Texans in a prominent role after the 2020 season.
The Texans attempted to hire Caserio during the offseason, but the Patriots filed tampering charges and Houston later dropped their pursuit altogether.
Caserio is now in line to be a free agent after the season and sources have told La Canfora that the odds of an extension getting done between Caserio and the Patriots are “beyond slim.”
Texans HC Bill O’Brien and executive VP Jack Easterby both have ties to Caserio and the belief is that he’s “very intrigued” by the opportunity to join the Texans.
Caserio, 43, got into coaching back in 1999 as a graduate assistant at Saginaw Valley State. He spent three years coaching in college before the Patriots hired him as an offensive coaching assistant in 2002.
Caserio later took a personnel assistant job and worked his way up to director of player personnel in 2008 and has remained in the position ever since.
We’ll have more regarding the Caserio as the news is available.
