The Houston Texans continued their head coaching search on Sunday by interview Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Frazier, 61, is suddenly an intriguing name to enter the head coaching market as the Bills defense continues to receive rave reviews, especially coming off Saturday night’s Divisional Round win over the Ravens in which they held Baltimore to three points and Lamar Jackson to 162 yards passing and 34 yards rushing.
Frazier, who has prior head coaching experience, has been defensive coordinator with the Bills since 2017 and held the same position with the Bucs from 2014-15.
He was head coach of the Minnesota Vikings from 2010-13, finishing with a career 21-32-1 record and reaching the playoffs just once.
If the Texans like Frazier enough to move forward with him, they would have to wait until the Bills are no longer in the playoffs before making the hire.
The Texans also interviewed Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus on Saturday.
Eberflus, who has been the Colts defensive coordinator since 2018, initially declined an interview with the Texans, but had a change of heart after Houston continued to push for him.
The Texans’ head coaching job is a precarious one, with quarterback Deshaun Watson’s future in Houston uncertain. Watson is reportedly expected to have a role in the head coach hiring process, though.
