HOUSTON – The Houston Texans have interviewed Brian Flores for their head coach opening, the team announced Friday night.
The interview took place a day after Texans fired David Culley for what General Manager Nick Caserio called “philosophical differences.” Flores, who was fired by the Miami Dolphins on Monday after going 24-25 for three seasons, was also interviewed for the Chicago Bears’ vacant coaching job on Friday.
Earlier in the day, Caserio said his decision to fire Culley had nothing to do with who would be available to replace him.
“These are independent entities,” Caserio said. “I do not think you make the said decision based on all of a sudden something that has changed or something is different. I think you should first start with your situation, evaluate it, make an honest assessment, make the decision and then possibly “It just so happens that other things happening in the league are beyond our control, beyond my control.”
Caserio said he does not have a specific timeline for hiring the franchise’s next head coach. When asked what he was looking for in a head coach, he said he was looking for “many of the qualities that David [Culley] besad. “
“I think we will be very conscious … with this process,” Caserio said. “I think we will go very thoroughly and try to make the best decision for this organization, whatever that entails.”
