Change is coming to the Houston Texans.
Team owner Cal McNair has seen enough after consecutive four-win seasons.
That’s why he fired former executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby.
Easterby has been with the franchise since 2019 as executive vice president of team development.
However, the Texans suffered a massive exodus of talent under his wing.
Still, Easterby is grateful for the opportunity, despite his unceremonial exit.
My family and I are thankful for our time in Houston. We appreciate the opportunities the McNair family has provided us and wish the organization well moving forward.

Easterby tweeted, “My family and I are thankful for our time in Houston. We appreciate the opportunities the McNair family has provided us and wish the organization well moving forward.”
Before joining the Texans, Easterby was the New England Patriots’ character and team development coach from 2013 to 2018.
His work there helped the Patriots win three more Super Bowls.
He was also the Kansas City Chiefs’ chaplain in 2011 and 2012
He was also the character coach for the South Carolina Gamecocks from 2005 to 2010.
Easterby started his front-office career as an operations intern for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2004.
More Heads May Roll
Easterby had a hand in hiring general manager Nick Caserio and head coach Lovie Smith.
Therefore, they are on the hot seat if they do not deliver results this season.
Unfortunately, the Texans are at 1-3-1 and are in for a tough four-game stretch against the Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Giants.
But overhauling their think tank makes sense because they have no other results to show for.
Cleaning house could be the best way to give the franchise a fresh start.
Otherwise, their struggle will continue as long as they don’t provide a solution.
