Texans Hire Third Consecutive Black Head Coach, Obliterating Racism Accusations

Remember how not too long ago the liberal sports media was complaining about how the Houston Texans were being racist in their hiring process?

Those claims look really foolish now. 

The Texans signed former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans to a six-year deal, making him the franchise’s sixth permanent head coach. The team will officially introduce him as their skipper to the media on Thursday.

Ryans ignored “First Take” co-host Stephen A. Smith, who implored black coaching candidates not to take the job after the Texans fired the two previous coaches -- who were both black -- after one season each.

“The Houston Texans organization, I’m going to say something loud and clear over the national airwaves and I don’t give a damn what anybody thinks,” Smith said back in January. “African Americans need not apply. This is not an organization that has been fair to African Americans.”

That certainly didn’t age well. 

Not only did Houston hand a massive contract to a black man, the Texans are now the first NFL franchise to have three straight black head coaches. If that’s not being “fair,” nothing is.

As I’ve stated in the past, the previous head coaches that Houston fired -- David Covey and Lovey Smith -- did not have a winning record in their coaching careers, or in their lone seasons at the helm of the Texans. 

In this NFL, wins matter most, and if you have a record of not winning, you don’t last long. It’s got nothing to do with race, and everything to do with results, something the progressive media doesn’t consider before they lash out irrationally. 

Now, the Texans seem to have found the right man for the job: a guy who can deliver results to a team desperate for a turnaround. Ryans has been excellent in his five years in different roles with the 49ers, and his two seasons as defensive coordinator have been nothing short of exceptional.

So Texans general manager Nick Caseiro was telling the truth when he said he was looking for the right candidate, and that skin color was irrelevant in his search.

“In the end, it’s not about race, it’s about finding quality coaches … All I can do is be honest and forthright, which I’ve done from the day that I took this job,” Caseiro said. “And I’m going to continue to do that and try to find the coach that makes the most sense for this organization.”

Hopefully Ryans delivers on the opportunity. And hopefully, the progressive sports lunatics zip their lips about the Texans being racist.
