The Houston Texans are in the process of interviewing former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith, per multiple reports.

The Houston Texans are interviewing former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith, per multiple reports. 

John McClain of The Houston Chronicle wrote more about the development in his Dec. 19 report. Here are some excerpts: 

"As expected, former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith was the first candidate to be interviewed to replace Gary Kubiak as the Texans' head coach.

"Smith interviewed earlier this week, according to multiple people familiar with the process. 

"Smith isn't coaching this season but plans to return. 

"He should be a leading candidate for several jobs once owners start firing coaches after the season ends. 

"Smith is a native Texan who grew up in Big Sandy and played on state championship teams.

"Among the other candidates the Texans are interested in are interim coach Wade Phillips, Penn State coach Bill O'Brien and San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt." 

Mark Berman of KRIV/Fox 26 Houston also confirms Smith's candidacy for the Texans head coaching job on Dec 19 when he tweeted,"The Texans have interviewed former Bears head coach Lovie Smith as the Texans being the process to find their next head coach." 

ESPN's Vaughn McClure also affirms Smith was interviewed by the Texans on Monday, Dec. 16.

NFL.com's Marc Sessler earlier reported on Dec. 8 that the Texans brass had already spoken with Smith at the time to talk to him about the coaching job. The information was obtained by Sessler's colleague, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, from a team source. 

Aside from the aforementioned candidates whom McClain mentioned, Rapoport also says Denver Broncos defensive coordinator and former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio is being considered, per Sessler. 

The 55-year-old Smith posted an 81-63 (.563) record as Bears head coach from 2004-12 and guided the team to three division championships and Super Bowl XLI, where it lost to the Indianapolis Colts, 29-17, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Full Bucs Awards at Halfway Point of 2014 Season

Nov 4 2014 10:40pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

It's hard to find silver linings for a 1-7 football team, but if you look hard enough, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers do indeed have a few bright spots despite their disappointing start to the 2014 season. A popular preseason pick to make a quick turnaround from basement-dwellers to playoff contenders—much like the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs—the Bucs have failed to live up to lofty expectations in their first year under head coach Lovie Smith. That said, there have ...

NFL Predictions Week 10: Early Odds, Picks and Projections for Upcoming Schedule

Nov 4 2014 10:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Early-week underdogs in the NFL picks department can put bettors ahead in a major way. That is, if they can properly identify the surefire underdogs to bet before the lines dramatically shift as others throw coin down on the full slate. Funnily enough, it seems underdogs have been ripe for the picking this season, but actually being confident enough to roll against Seattle at home or Denver in general is quite rare. No, let's play a bit closer to the vest t ...
