The Houston Texans fired head coach Gary Kubiak yesterday. The search for a replacement is already underway and our John Clayton listed some candidates here. Among them are ESPN analyst Jon Gruden, Cincinnati Bengals OC Jay Gruden, San Francisco 49ers OC Greg Roman, and former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith. By some accounts, Smith is an early leader for the job.
