Texans line up offensive coordinator candidates

With Texans offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan expected to join his father in Washington, Gary Kubiak has started to look for a replacement.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports there are four candidates: Titans offensive line coach Mike Munchak, Broncos offensive line
coach Rick Dennison, Falcons quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave and former Chiefs offensive coordinator Chan Gailey.

Kubiak is an offensive-minded coach, so losing Shanahan shouldn’t be devastating. He even had some fun wondering what the Shanahan duo will be like together.

“That’s [working with
his father] something Kyle’s always wanted. Kyle’s done an outstanding
job for us . . . He’s going to be a head coach in this league someday.  Now he and his dad get to do battle. I’d love to be a fly on the wall.”

“The Shanahans” sounds like a sitcom pilot: A father-son duo team up to revive a once-storied franchise down on its luck.  You’ve got the meddlesome owner, the wacky running back and tight end, and some guy named Vinny who keeps stopping over. Now if only I knew some writers.

    We change coordinators like it’s running out of business. I guess “good” to see them all moving on to “greener pastures”.
    That’s if you consider Texas A&M, Air Force, and the Washington Redskins greener pastures.

    Shameless plug Florio…are all the positive reviews on Amazon from credible reviewers or if I apply my CSI/Sherlock Holmes skills will they be traced back to a member of the Florio family?

    Are any of the candidates of a nationality other than European American and lacking male genitals? Because if not, Florio is going to lose it!

    Florio, have you read some of the reviews for you “book”
    “I really had thought reading novels was a valid use of my time. I have been an avid reader for 20 years and I assume I have spent a good part of my life reading. However, the moment I picked up Florio’s book, I knew that the past 20 years of my life had been a total waste. Not only haven’t I put it down since, but I’ve had the text printed on the walls of my house and tattooed onto my body, so no matter what, I can have this literary masterpiece with me. I threw out all of my other books, movies, games, even my TV, radio, wife, and children. A definite must-read. “

    Chan Gailey talked the Texans, well Casserley anyway, into using a 2nd round supplemental pick on his former GT RB Tony Hollings…thanks for absolutely nothing.
