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.

Doug Martin's Updated 2014 Fantasy Outlook Heading into Week 5

Sep 30 2014 5:54pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Concerns of a backfield by committee in Tampa Bay were quelled in Week 4, as Doug Martin returned from his knee injury and out-touched Bobby Rainey, 16-5. But the good news for Martin owners pretty much dies right there. The Muscle Hamster looked more like a Muscle Slug against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense depleted by injuries, compiling just 56 total yards (3.5 per touch) and failing to put a stranglehold on the starting job. Martin saved his day wi ...

Sep 28 2014 5:26pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

What a difference a week made for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And the biggest difference was Mike Glennon starting at quarterback. The Buccaneers traveled to Pittsburgh and stunned the Steelers with a 27-24 comeback victory. Glennon was the primary catalyst for a revitalized offense.  Through three weeks of play with veteran Josh McCown under center, the Buccaneers were the NFL's 30th-ranked offense and the league's worst passing team.  Tampa Bay was forced to make a move when McCown to ...
