Houston (CBS Houston)– Boomer Esiason joined In The Loop with Nick and Lopez Wednesday and was asked about the Houston Texans coaching situation.

“I’m not there every day, so I can only go by what you guys are leading me into,” Esiason said. “I would think (Kevin) Sumlin and (David) Shaw are going to be two guys that are going to be high on everybody’s radar in the NFL. Both college coaches, one at Stanford and one at Texas A&M. Both are tremendously successful with what they’re doing in their programs. I think these are guys that are going to be asked to come in and try to revitalize franchises, wherever they are. They’re exciting names. They’re names that kind of of jump off the college leader board.”

Sumlin’s name has been thrown around for top college jobs (Texas, USC, ie.) and will be coveted by several NFL teams especially those that run the spread and read-option game.

Shaw also has been extremely effective going 32-6 with Stanford and remains very high on the radar for college and several NFL teams.

Sumlin is 54-22 as a head coach at both Houston and Texas A&M.

Esiason went on to discuss the options of successful coordinators that could be an option and why a young coach might be the only answer.

“You just don’t want to have retread, older coach that is from a bygone era,” Esiason said. “I think this league has so changed and it’s so much more wide opened. I believe you have to have a running game; you have to be able to control the football. I do believe there is something to be said about what Chip Kelly is doing in Philadelphia. I do believe there is something to be said about the way Russell Wilson is playing from a spread formation.”

“The question is can the Texans convince a guy to leave a good job in college to come and take over a team that is obviously in a nine-game losing streak.”
