According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the Texans see 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans as their top candidate for their vacant head coaching position. They share mutual interest and will meet with the team next week. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
The Texans parted ways with Lovie Smith and have heavily pursued Ryans, who was considered a top candidate across the league for coach-needy teams. Ryans has found success in San Francisco, captaining one of the strongest defenses in the NFL. The Texans have talent on defense and have been effective at creating turnovers over the last couple of seasons, and Ryans could help usher the Texans into their new era if hired.
