The Houston Texans coaching staff is up in the air, as the Texans continue to find a new head coach. Aside from Tim Kelly, who was sacked along with David Culley, the rest of the coaching staff is in limbo. Will Houston want to keep Lovie Smith once a new coach takes over? Will James Campen be imposed on someone else after leading a rotating forward line that passes well protected? Many questions abound, and with many questions comes many rumors and news.
As for last year’s coaching staff, former Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly interviewed the Carolina Panthers for their offensive coordinator position. If you forgot, Carolina fired Joe Brady this offseason and is looking for someone new. They interviewed former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo and recently interviewed Kelly for the same position.
The Panthers entered the Bill O’Brien zone. Their head coach Matt Rhule has signed a long-term contract. Their talent fell short of their win-loss record. He refused to take responsibility for the team’s failures. The whole fanbase once Rhule is gone, and the Panthers to start all over again, all over again. It got so bad that Texans quarterback coach Pep Hamilton, who will likely look for another job once the Texans find a new head coach, turned down the opportunity to interview for the job. as the Panthers’ offensive coordinator.
