Jason La Canfora reports Texans interim GM Jack Easterby has no desire to stay in the position full-time after this season and Houston will hire a new general manager.
He adds several sources were adamant Easterby has never discussed expanding his role and has no interest in taking a more hands-on role with personnel.
Currently, Easterby makes more than $3 million a year in his role as executive vice president and his chief responsibility is changing the culture of the organization.
La Canfora writes Houston has a list of candidates and is finalizing a timeline to interview those who aren’t employed by NFL teams. That process will start after Thanksgiving.
He adds the Texans also plan to hire a new head coach and not leave interim HC Romeo Crennel in the role in 2021, despite other reports.
Easterby was promoted to the Texans’ executive vice president of football operations in January after being their vice president of team development in April 2019. Previously he was a chaplain/character coach with the Patriots.
