Texans hiring Nick Caserio as new general manager

Caserio attempted to interview with the Texans in 2018 and 2019, but the Patriots blocked each attempt.

The Houston Texans have agreed to hire New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio as their new GM, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter and confirmed by the Boston Globe.

Caserio joined the Patriots in 2001 as a personnel assistant.

The 45-year-old Caserio has been a vital part of the Patriots' past dynastic success. The Texans dropped their pursuit, resulting in O'Brien eventually leading the front office. However, the deal did not unfold because the New England Patriots filed tampering charges against the Texans. The Patriots filed tampering charges against Houston in 2019, but the National Football League passed rules in May preventing teams from blocking interviews that are a "clear promotion", opening the door for Caserio's new position. Caserio also could hire a new coach with Patriots connections - McDaniels, linebackers coach Jerod Mayo, or Brian Daboll, a former Patriots assistant who is now the Bills' offensive coordinator.

Caserio signed a two-year extension with the Patriots last February, but the Patriots no longer have the ability to block him from interviews. Despite Watson's stellar 2020 campaign, Houston finished the regular season 4-12, marking its worst record since 2017. They do not own their first- or second-round picks.

Reiss: It looks like Easterby, who served as interim GM this season, still has some juice, even after team chairman Cal McNair said he would not be involved in the search process and that the next general manager would determine Easterby's role moving forward.
