Since Doug Marrone opted out of his contract as head coach of the Buffalo Bills, he's had an interview with the Atlanta Falcons and an interview with the New York Jets in connection with their respective head coaching vacancies. Marrone may or may not already be eliminated from consideration for the Jets' gig, and the Falcons are clearly talking to other candidates. Doug Marrone may well find himself without a head coaching job next season, but that doesn't mean he'll be out of work in the NFL. Chris Mortensen reports that Marrone could reunite with an old friend in Houston.

Before the Texans and Bills met early in the 2014 regular season, we learned that Bill O'Brien and Doug Marrone had been buddies for nearly twenty years, complete with Marrone having been the guy who introduced OB to his wife. Personal relationship aside, adding a guy with head coaching experience in the NFL would have to be considered a sizable coup for any coaching staff, wouldn't it?

Bills fans may disagree, but I'd think that this would be a good move for the Texans. Your opinion?
