Report: Texans not interested in college coaches

College coaches have become an increasing source of intrigue in the NFL, but not with every NFL team.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Texans are not interested in any active or former college coaches in filling their head coaching vacancy.

This would follow the unofficial but often respected Rule of the Opposite, where teams pursue opposing traits of the head coach they just fired. Bill O'Brien was Penn State's head coach before coming to Houston ahead of the 2014 season.

McClain reports the Texans are looking primarily at NFL coordinators. The club has also interviewed former NFL head coaches Jim Caldwell and Marvin Lewis.

Houston plans to hire a GM before filling the head coaching vacancy; O'Brien previously filled both roles.
