P&P: For Texans head coaching search, it all keeps coming back to DeMeco Ryans

(SportsRadio 610) - The Texans are down to seven candidates to be their sixth head coach in franchise history.

It looks like former Texans linebacker and current San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans is the frontrunner.

The Niners are back in the NFC Championship game, with Ryans' defense ranked second in the NFL in points (18.9) and yards per game allowed (305.3), fourth in ESPN's defensive efficiency (60.7) and yards per play (5.04) and fifth in defensive EPA (67.02).

On Payne & Pendergast, Seth Payne (a former teammate of Ryans in Houston) and Sean Pendergast discuss just how good of a coach Ryans is and react to audio of him laying out how he gets his guys to be so physical.
