Your Houston Texans have interviewed five gentlemen for their head coaching vacancy thus far.
So far, the Texans have interviewed:— Sarah Barshop (@sarahbarshop) January 21, 2022
— Brian Flores
— Joe Lombardi
— Hines Ward
— Jonathan Gannon
— Josh McCown
The Texans have also requested a sit-down with Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell that’s expected to come to fruition this weekend.
Texans still expected to interview Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell before playoff game against defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers, per league sources. He would follow interviews with Josh McCown, Jonathan Gannon, Hines Ward, Joe Lombardi and Brian Flores— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) January 21, 2022
Whether Houston interviews any additional candidates beyond that list and O’Connell, I do not know. I hope San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel gets a look, but I don’t get to make that decision.

We do know, however, that current Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon impressed enough in his initial meeting with Nick Caserio & Co. to merit the organization pursuing a second interview.

Gannon seems to have left every team he’s spoken with wanting more.
Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon has made extremely strong impression on the Texans with league sources saying Gannon 'knocked it out of the park' in interviews with them, Broncos and Vikings. Very well-prepared, per sources. Regarded as very strong contender— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) January 22, 2022
Jonathan Gannon a significantly hotter name than Twitter is giving credit for. #Texans #Broncos— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) January 22, 2022
More than one organization blown away in interviews with Gannon.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) January 22, 2022
Wouldn't be surprised if first HC hired this cycle.
Will Jonathan Gannon be the next head coach of the Houston Texans? If he’s as hot a commodity as the tweets above indicate, would he want the Texans job over the other ones he’s under consideration for?
