HOUSTON – The Texans season is over and a busy offseason of change began on Monday with players cleaning out lockers and leaving the facility. Behind the scenes, CEO Cal McNair, President Jamey Rootes and others tied to the search process are rolling up their sleeves to speed up the process of finding a new General Manager and Head Coach.

Late Monday night, the Texans tweeted out that they interviewed Omar Khan for the GM position. Khan is a well respected front office piece with the Steelers where he serves as the Vice President of Football and Business Administration.

Khan has been with the Pittsburgh organization climbing the ranks since coming on board in 2001. He has held his current position since 2016.

The Texans will also continue their search for a new head coach. Reports say Titans Offensive Coordinator Arthur Smith is on the Texans radar. He could interview as early as next week after Tennessee’s first-round playoff game. The situation also applies to Colts Defensive Coordinator Matt Eberflus who is also of interest to the Texans.
