I like the idea of getting Gary Kubiak. He's a former Texas A&M quarterback and offensive line coach who has worked with Sherman in the past. Perhaps Sherman would recommend him to Philbin? In addition, we all know that (with the exception of this season) the Texans have had a very good offense with a stout ground game the last several years.
I was hoping we would be able to retain Sherman if we made a switch at OC. Perhaps shift him to assistant head coach (we don't have one) and let him manage the offensive line (something he has a ton of experience doing).
I hate to see us breaking up the staff so quickly. But what's done is done. Hopefully we make the right moves and the team improves from it.
I like where your head's at.
I wouldn't hate bringing in Phillips as the DC too haha Little Houston, i mean Havana
I think Coyle has done a decent job. You've got to remember, we yanked our bigger run stopping linebackers and swapped them out for younger faster guys that can cover down. When you change up your linebacking corps like that you're bound to have some setbacks with the run defense. In addition, Soliai was dealing with knee issues for a lot of the season. When that man isn't healthy the run defense suffers as well.
In addition, if the offense takes a step forward and is able to produce more sustained drives next season, that too will greatly help the defense.
