Report: Texans not planning to hire GM for 2019 season

The Houston Texans made the bold decision to fire general manager Brian Gaine after one season on the job, and it does not sound like they will hire a replacement for the upcoming season.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that the Texans are not planning to hire a GM for the upcoming season and will instead divide up the GM responsibilities among a few existing front office members.

The Texans’ handling of the GM situation seemed hasty and ill-planned.

Almost immediately after the news of Gaine’s firing was released, reports said the Texans were targeting Patriots executive Nick Caserio for the position. The Patriots responded by filing a tampering allegation against the Texans, who later agreed to drop their pursuit of Caserio in exchange for the tampering charge being dropped. Now they will go through the upcoming season without a GM.

Another interesting note related to this matter is that Pro Football Talk reported on Tuesday that Gaine and Texans head coach Bill O’Brien disagreed on whether Jadeveon Clowney should receive a contract extension. Clowney is likely to play the season under the franchise tag.
