The Houston Texans already found their head coach of the future in DeMeco Ryans.
But, now he is faced with putting together a staff around him that can succeed.
Ryans has plenty of connections around the league from his time as a player.
He should be able to build a good staff and have the Texans headed in the right direction.
One coach that Ryans is interviewing to be his offensive coordinator is former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Per sources, former Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury is in Houston today, speaking to the Texans about a job on DeMeco Ryans’ coaching staff.

Kingsbury was fired after a poor season in Arizona, but he is still seen as one of the better young offensive minds.
Houston does not have much from a personnel standpoint on their offense.
But, they are expected to select a quarterback with the second overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
Kingsbury has experience working with rookies like he did when the Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray back in 2019.
Ryans is also familiar with Kingsbury’s offense from his time coaching against him with the 49ers.
If the Texans do hire Kingsbury, his style of offense should fit well with a rookie quarterback.
Both Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud are options for the Texans at number two.
Also, they are dual-threat players similar to what Kingsbury had in Murray.
Even though the Texans have not been competitive in some time, Ryans seems to be the right man to turn around the defense.
All he needs is a smart offensive coordinator that can put together a quality game plan.
Kingsbury has had success in the NFL, and there is no reason to think he can not do it again.NEXT: DeMeco Ryans Claims He Made An Easy Choice
