Houston – Houston Texans interviewed the midfielder Josh McCown On Friday, the team announced that former Lions and Colts coach Jim Caldwell was to open their main training.
Texas also announced that they have “continued discussions” about the vacancy with Caldwell.
Caldwell, 66, was recently hired as assistant coach with the Miami Dolphin in 2019, but he had to leave the team before the season to tackle health issues and wasn’t kept for the following season. He went 36-30, including the playoffs, as head coach of the Lions team (2014-17) and 28-24 as head coach of the Molts (2009-11).
McCown, 41, retired in 2019 after 17 years in the NFL, and took a job as a midfield coach at high school in Charlotte, North Carolina, where his children played. He continued his training after coming out of retirement and signing with Al Nisour later in 2019.
McCown played three games that season, including losing a wild card to the Seattle Seahawks afterward Carson Wentz Left in the first quarter with a concussion.
When McCown signed with Texas, he was asked if he hoped to train in the future.
“I think so,” McCown said in November. “If you asked me 10 years ago, I wouldn’t have said anyway, it’s not what I want to do at this level. My dream to get out of college if I couldn’t play in the NFL is to train high school football here in Texas.” I really thought that this would be my way. But the more time I spend in this game and be with these guys, I see real value in being part of an organization and competing at the highest level ….
“Yes, one of these days, whenever that happens, the sooner I finally take off the cleats. I definitely see that in the future.”
The team announced earlier in the week that it had interviewed Bills ‘defense coordinator Leslie Frazier, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Binemi, Colts’ defense coordinator Matt Eberfloss, and Ravens assistant coach David Cooley.
