>> Add this to the NFL free-agency Bingo card if you had it: the Houston Texans finished interviewing former Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Hines Ward for their head coaching vacancy, according to the team’s Twitter account.

The Texans abided by the Hines Ward Rule in their interview process: welcoming the longtime Steeler and current assistant coach at Florida Atlantic University to potentially replace ousted play-caller David Culley, who was let go on Thursday. Culley went 4-13 with the Texans. <<

I can't see an NFL team making Ward a HC just yet, needs more experience. What better experience than being a HC in Pitt for a new league.
Not to the level of his ex-teammate AB obviously, but HW might be soured an alt leagues from being made ambassador for the AAF--unless he got the Marshawn Lynch bag of quarters deal out of it then all bets are off.

But what college assistant has jumped to NFL head coach recently? Kiffin about 15 years ago but that's about all I know of.
Right so this may be attractive to Hines Ward as a way to move up more quickly. Its a thought.
