Texans Fire GM

Recommended Posts

Btowner   

Serves them right.They hired Jack Easterby who was the former Patriots' life coach who is best friends with Caserio. Supposedly, O'Brien and Caserio are also good friends. Why are the Texans allowing a "life coach" to have an influence on their GM firing and hiring?

 

So, you have another team trying to mimic the Patriots' organization without Belichick or Brady. I hope it's a massive failure.

Hope they lose some draft picks as punishment.

The Patriots accusing another team of cheating? That's a new low for them, making New England the proverbial pot to Houston's kettle. :rolleyes:

Charley Caserly is available...

I think he'd rather stay with the NFL Network rather than come here to be the Texans GM again. The NFL doesn't need another Mayock.

Complaint: Fired Texans GM Brian Gaine 'targeted' African American employees in series of firings

 

Recently fired Houston Texans general manager Brian Gaine “targeted” African American employees in a series of firings during his tenure, a former Texans security coordinator alleged in a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  

Jeff Pope, who was notified he would not be retained by the team May 8, made a series of allegations in a 4,500-word charge of discrimination complaint obtained by USA TODAY Sports early Thursday morning. Gaine was fired by the Texans on Friday with little insight into the move disclosed by the team. 

Attempts to reach Gaine were not immediately successful Thursday morning.

Prototype shown with options.

 

Texans spokesperson Amy Palcic told The Houston Chronicle that Pope’s allegations of racial bias “was not a factor in the recent decision to relieve Brian Gaine from his job as general manager.” 

“We have just been made aware of Mr. Pope’s claim,” Palcic said. “We do not comment on pending litigation. The Houston Texans do not tolerate personal or professional discrimination of any kind."

Pope, who is African American, listed eight other African Americans who were allegedly fired by Gaine after he took over as GM in January 2018. 

“It appeared, and I believe, that he was targeting all minorities in leadership positions and was set to replace them with non-African-Americans. Which he did,” Pope wrote in the complaint.

The clown show continues. If you're in the front office of a team wanting a guy for their new GM, you make sure no one in said office is seen during a filmed public event talking to the guy the day before you fire the old GM. You tell Easterly to not bee seen talking to Caserio at the function or even better you ask him to not attend. If you need him to make contact you do it in private or over the phone, not in front of cameras.

Interesting information (misinformation?) floating around the media here. One source says the Texans did not tamper before they fired Gaine. After the firing they asked permission to interview Cesario and were immediately denied by the Patriots. They ignored the denial and continued to contact Cesario to try to bring him to Houston, and this is the tampering.

 

It will be interesting to find out what was going on. Tampering is prevalent in the NFL but flagrant tampering could wind up with a draft pick penalty.

Nick Caserio will remain in New England, apparently ending a league tampering investigation against the Texans.

Texans CEO Cal McNair said today that he was not aware of all the relevant language in Caserio’s contract with the Patriots but once he became aware, he pledged to Patriots owner Robert Kraft that the Texans wouldn’t ask Caserio to leave New England.

“When we started the process to interview Nick Caserio for our EVP/GM position, we consulted the League office on numerous occasions, followed the procedures outlined in the League’s rules and believed we were in full compliance,” McNair said in a statement. “We have now been made aware of certain terms in Nick’s contract with the Patriots. Once we were made aware of these contract terms, I informed Mr. Kraft that we would stop pursuing Nick.”

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Patriots have agreed to drop their tampering case. So this story appears to be over, with Caserio still in New England and the Texans still looking for a new G.M.

This is the real story here. Apparently, where there was smoke there was fire. No pun intended.

No new candidates have been interviewed since last week, looks like the Texans may ride with current staff. O'Brian will likely have a larger if not overall say. I think this is very good for the rest of the division, BoB is stretched pretty thin being the HC and OC, now he could also be the defacto GM.

Currently, Bill O'Brian is the defacto GM. It has been 2 weeks since they fired Brian Gaine, the longer it goes, the more likely they will wait until after the season to hire a GM.

 

So the following is speculation. Why do I care? I find it interesting since I just love a clown show on another team in the division and I think this is a 31 clown car VW Beetle at a 3 ring circus.

 

Bill O'Brian is the GM until the end of the season. What can he do? Make a few waiver claims, maybe a trade. Basically nothing. The players are pretty much set for 2019. And there are big holes on the offensive line and defensive secondary. 

 

He will be in charge of everything, head coach and GM and still offensive coordinator. No way he's up for this. Sooo

 

It all goes to shambles (hooray!)

 

They fire Bill at the end of the season, hire a GM and then a new coach. (probably not good for us but puts Texans in for at least another year of transition.)

Really stupid move on their part, coaches are immersed in game planning  in season and simply don't have time to track roster moves and big view items. Unless they have someone in the organization to work as defacto GM and O'Brien is just going to rubber stamp; they're going to have the head coach not doing the job he should be.
