Tony Dungy, Jimmy Johnson, Andre Johnson advising Texans on coach/G.M. search

Mike Florio and Peter King discuss the state of the Falcons, Lions, Texans and Jaguars as they all search for new leadership this offseason.

The Texans have employed Korn Ferry to help with their search for a new head coach and General Manager, but the firm will not be the only group advising owner Cal McNair in the coming weeks.

McNair has put together another advisory committee to help identify the right candidates for those openings. The group includes former Buccaneers and Colts coach Tony Dungy, former Cowboys and Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson, former Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, Fritz Pollard Alliance executive director Rod Graves, and San Antonio Spurs CEO R.C. Buford.

McNair said the Texans are on a “relentless search for greatness” and that the group is made up of people that “have gotten there and we’ll use some of their intuition and intelligence to help us get there.”

“I’m very excited,” McNair said, via Mark Berman of FOX26. “These guys are all so experienced and had a lot of success in the various areas they’ve been working and they all want to help and make the Texans the best we can be and it’s really quite a testament that they want to do that.”

Conversations with the group have already gotten underway and their work with McNair and Korn Ferry will continue until the Texans have made their decisions after the 2020 season comes to an end.
