I'll throw out a few former Oilers with some coaching experience.

Bruce Matthews
Billy "white shoes" Johnson
Haywood Jeffires
Earnest Givens

I believe Matthews and Jeffires live in the Houston area.
It's gettin' hot in here...and we about to burn 'em up!

Looks like the 2020 XFL champion may be 2-3 seconds short of playing a full season :?

I doubt Matthews or Jeffries will be in a HC position. I don't believe either one has any coaching experience

According to wiki,
As of 2008, Jeffires is coaching the Bay Area Gamblers, a semipro football team in Pearland, Texas.
All are doubtful but we gotta start the conversation somewhere ;)

Based on the Stl pick, I'll throw out another doubtful possibility.

Jerry Rosberg - retired special teams coach for the Baltimore Ravens. His presser announcing his retirement makes me think he is done coaching and looking forward to family time. However, I wouldn't be surprised if he got a call from Mr. Luck.

He maybe would have fit better in DC assuming he and his family live in the Baltimore area, but...The Ravens are birds and the Cardinals are birds so... :)

If they want to go the AAF route, Mike Singletary. He is from Houston.

That's who I was about to say. According to reports he has been messaging Luck, along with other coaches from the AAF

Jeff Fisher and Jim Leavitt were talked to about The Houston job.

Mike Singletary would be my choice. Born in Houston. Went to high school in Houston. Coaches in Dallas.

Mike Riley would be interesting for The Houston job as well. He just coached in San Antonio. The guy has HC experience in every league. College, NFL, The World League, The CFL and The AAF.

Bruce Matthews is a lot like Jonathan Hayes minus the long resume. He’s never been more than a position coach. He retired from coaching 6 years ago.

An outside the box hire would be June Jones. He recently accepted a demotion in The CFL. Stepped aside as HC for Orlando Steinauer. Jones is the OC for The Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Jones has Texas ties. Coached SMU. Head coach in the NFL and CFL. He actually has the distinction of coaching for The Houston Gamblers in The USFL and coaching with The Houston Oilers. Jones has always been a strange bird and an outside the box type coach.
