Report: Whisenhunt on Texans “Radar”

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Houston Texans have put current San Diego Chargers Ken Whisenhunt’s name in the hat to possibly fill their vacancy at head coach. This comes on the heels that the Texans have already contacted former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith.

Whisenhunt played in the NFL for 7 seasons for the Atlanta Falcons (1985-1988), Washington Redskins (1989-1990) and the New York Jets (1991-1992) as a tight end.

His coaching career in the NFL started in 1997 which has included stops in Baltimore, Cleveland, New York and Pittsburgh where he was named offensive coordinator in 2004. Soon after helping the Steelers reach the 2005 Super Bowl and winning he was named the Head Coach for the Arizona Cardinals in 2007. In 2008, he led the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl appearance in 2008 where they lost  to the Steelers on a last second catch by Santonio Holmes.

At Arizona he posted a 45-51 overall record with a 4-2 playoff record with one Super Bowl appearance in 6 seasons for the Cardinals.

This season he has joined the San Diego Chargers and revitalized the career of Philip Rivers who is putting up his best season as a quarterback in the NFL. Whisenhunt has been considered an offensive mind around the NFL and could possibly help a Texans team with offensive weapons.
