Colts DC Matt Eberflus Turns Down Coaching Interview with the Texans

The Texans continue to be on the lookout for possible head coaching candidates, and one name that reportedly won’t be visiting the team is that of Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that Eberflus has turned down an offer to come to Houston to chat with the Texans brass about the head coaching spot.

The 50-year-old from Toledo, Ohio has been with the Colts as their DC since 2018, and this is the first year his name has been brought up as a hot head coaching candidate.

The Colts, who will open Wild Card weekend on Saturday with a matchup in Buffalo against the red-hot Bills, ranked 8th overall this season in defense in the NFL, allowing 332.1 yards per game.

While one would think Eberflus is just happy to be mentioned as a possible candidate for open head coaching jobs, he evidently doesn’t think much of the opening down in Houston with the Texans.

The offer that was made to Eberflus came prior to the team hiring Nick Caserio as their new GM away from the Patriots.

There’s no word on what officially has caused Eberflus to say “no” to an interview, but that could have something to do with it, or possibly the turmoil over the last 24 plus hours with QB DeShaun Watson has scared him off.
