Texans officially request interview with Chiefs' Eric Bieniemy: report


(SportsRadio 610) -- Finally, the Texans are requesting to interview Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, widely considered one of the top head coaching candidates available.

Bieniemy had interviewed for five of the head coach vacancies across the league, and all but the Texans had requested an interview with him at that point.

This is part of what has frustrated franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is in favor of Bieniemy at least interviewing for the job after endorsements from Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and other players on that team.

Watson is also believed to be upset about not being included in the process of hiring general manager Nick Caserio.

Now that Caserio is leading the search for a coach, and the Texans have officially requested an interview with Bieniemy, this could help in smoothing things over between the two parties.
