Texans interview Josh McCown for head coaching vacancy
McCown interviewed for the position last season but was beaten out by David Culley, whom the Texans fired last week.
The 42-year-old has no prior coaching experience. The Texans apparently considered surrounding him with at least one former NFL head coach after meeting with him last year.
McCown finished the 2020 campaign on Houston's roster after the team signed him from the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. He didn't appear in a game last season and most recently saw action during the playoffs with the Eagles in 2019.
The Texans have also interviewed former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon, and former NFL wide receiver Hines Ward.
McCown spent time with 10 NFL franchises across 18 seasons, starting 76 games and appearing in 26 more.
