At the moment — and it’s early yet — Mike Shanahan is still the coach of the Redskins.
But even if — or when — he’s not, he’s apparently not on the Texans’ wish list.
According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans won’t pursue Shanahan even if he’s fired by the Redskins.
McClain also mentions that ESPN Jon Gruden is not on the list compiled by Texans owner Bob McNair.
Former Bears coach Lovie Smith, Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and Stanford’s David Shaw are mentioned in his report, though McNair listed NFL experience as a factor for his next coach.
