The Houston Texans met with Leslie Frazier last year and as Ian Rapoport reported, Frazier was a serious candidate. The Texans ultimately went with David Culley and Houston has struggled to a 3-11 record in his first season.
While it would be surprising, it hasn’t been uncommon to see teams move on from coaches after one season. The struggles this year hasn’t been entirely Culley’s fault as he had to deal with the Texans releasing J.J. Watt, not trading DeShaun Watson, losing Tyrod Taylor for an extended period of time, and starting rookie Davis Mills.
If the Texans do elect to look for a head coach for the second straight year, it would make sense for them to once again ask to speak with Leslie Frazier. The Texans could use an experienced head coach, Frazier was head coach of the Minnesota Vikings for over three season, to try and help guide this team through what looks to be an extensive re-build.
The bigger question would be if Leslie Frazier would want to take on such a tall task as head coach of the Houston Texans, especially if some of these other head coaching jobs are an option.
