Texans reportedly “hope” to interview Nick Caserio

AP

The Texans may want to hire Patriots executive Nick Caserio to be the new G.M. in Houston, but Caserio has to want the job. And the job has to carry enough authority to allow the Texans to hire Caserio over any objection of his current employer.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Texans “hope” to interview Caserio, but that it currently isn’t known whether that will occur.

Caserio has spent 18 years with the Patriots. For the past decade, he has served as the team’s director of player personnel.

Before he can become the Texans G.M., he’ll have to want to make the move. The job also will require the kind of authority that would prevent the Patriots from blocking the hire.

Obviously, the Texans would also have to want Caserio. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle pointed out over the weekend that the Texans wanted Caserio when replacing Rick Smith in early 2018, and that the Texans likely want Caserio again.

  1. Not sure this is anything more than a lateral move with more money for Caserio. If he stays put he will have the last word on players with the Pats for many yrs. And the money will flow there too

  2. They wanted him last year but he didn’t want them, but in order to save face he just had the team announce it blocked the move, and he’s hoping to do the same thing this time. Which is why the job title and responsibilities matter because the Pats can only block it if it’s a step up or lateral move. Otherwise he’s gonna have to come out and say I’m not interested in moving to dirty Philadelphia

  3. I don’t blame somebody for wanting to blaze their own trail, but if I had the chance to work with a legend like Belichick, that would be hard to walk away from.

  4. Good luck with that Houston.

    Caserio is also super close to Josh McDaniel’s and partly why McDaniels stayed in NE. They go back to John Carroll University where Nick was the QB and Josh was the WR (95-98)

    I’d give Houston about a .001% shot. But I’ll wish them luck.

  5. These opportunities only come along once in awhile in life and you’re never in charge of anything in NE as long as BB is there. You got your rings, GO GET PAID!

  6. Why leave when you have BB and TB? Your next coach is your buddy who is on the staff and you will get a raise for not leaving. Do you really think working with Obrien in Houston is a very stable situation to give up the security you have> I think not…

  7. The Patriots have lost so many front office people and coaches over the years, yet they still keep winning super bowls. Then, the guys who leave, never win any super bowls. I mean, I can understand the first time someone robbed New England’s front office, but it’s pretty obvious these guys aren’t going to go elsewhere and win anything. It’s all Bill Belichick. If Belichick retired tomorrow, are you going to tell me there are folks out there that actually believe they’ll continue winning with McDaniels as coach and Caserio as GM. Nothing against these men, but Belichick is the genius.

  8. The Pats have made 4 of the last 5 super bowls and won 3. It would be 5 in a row if not for a missed extra point and subsequent 2 point conversion in Denver prior to SB 50.

    How does Nick walk away from that?
