The Houston Texans tweeted this report from Ian Rappoport of the NFL Network about their search for a head coach. The question is their reason behind it. Is this confirming they are interested in Penn State’s Bill O’Brien or is this a way to poke fun at a report for being in error. The only thing that seems to be clear about this is just how unclear it is.
It is possible this is to help the NFL Network push its credibility as a news gathering organization since the Texans and the network would all be under the same tent in the grand scheme of things. Nevertheless, it is puzzling that a team would ever be this open about their process of searching for a head coach. It is also possible that the people who run the account have no knowledge of anything and are using this to tweak everyone and make the whole situation more confusing, thereby making it more difficult go guess what is actually happening.
It will be interesting to see if this becomes a pattern for the Texans or if more teams start doing this or it is simply an isolated incident. Regardless of the true answer, it has a lot of people wondering what the Texans are doing.
