(SportsRadio 610) - The Texans are interviewing retired NFL quarterback Josh McCown for a second time as they look to fill their head coaching vacancy.

McCown interviewed for the position last week, as he did a year ago before the Texans hired David Culley.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports McCown is in Houston for a second interview Friday. McCown, according to Pelissero, has told the Texans he's "all-in" and is the first known finalist.

Houston has also interviewed former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell, Florida Atlantic University assistant coach and longtime NFL wide receiver Hines Ward, and Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon.

Of the candidates, McCown is the only one without any coaching experience on the college or professional level.

McCown entered the league in 2002 and his last NFL team was the Texans in 2020, when they brought him in as a backup. He was never active for a game, but even at the time, it felt like the Texans could be grooming him to be a coach.
