Former Detroit Lions HC Jim Caldwell’s ‘buzz’ is growing for new gig

According to a report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, there’s a “growing buzz” for former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell in regards to the Houston Texans‘ head coach vacancy.

From Pro Football Focus:

A buzz is building in league circles that Caldwell could be the next coach in Houston.

Last month, the Texans interviewed Caldwell, who previously coached the Colts and the Lions, before hiring G.M. Nick Caserio. With the team desperately needing a solution to the now obvious and well-documented discontent of quarterback Deshaun Watson, Caldwell could be the calming influence the team needs.

Would Caserio want Caldwell? Former Lions G.M. Bob Quinn, who worked with Caldwell in Detroit, fired Caldwell after a pair of 9-7 seasons. Some would say that the firing of Caldwell became a matter of “when” not “if” once Quinn got the job, given the reality that Quinn seemed to be determined to eventually hire Matt Patricia to coach the team.

Nation, would this be a good fit for Caldwell?
