Could the Texans replace Bill O’Brien with Deshaun Watson’s former mentor, Dabo Swinney? According to the Clemson head coach, the answer is no. At least, for now.

“I have not heard from Deshaun and that is not even anything that I want to even have to think about,” the two-time national champ said, via Matt Young of The Houston Chronicle. “You would be the one to ask that question out of all the questions. You don’t want to ask anything about Miami? Next question.”

Lions snap 11-game losing streak by booting Cardinals on last-second field goal

  Lions snap 11-game losing streak by booting Cardinals on last-second field goal Prior to Sunday, the Detroit Lions had an 11-game losing streak that dated back to last season before they beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.The Lions beat the Cardinals 26-23 on Sunday on Matt Prater's 39-yard field goal, ending a nearly year-long skid and giving the franchise a bit of life after starting the season 0-2.

Swinney was connected to the Texans job immediately following word of O’Brien’s firing. The speculation made — and still makes — lots of sense. The Tigers head coach isn’t just close with Watson, he also has a good relationship with executive Jack Easterby, who is currently in charge of operations.

Swinney famously compared Watson to Michael Jordan in the buildup to the 2017 draft, where the Texans landed him at No. 12 overall. Even with a football MJ under center, the Texans started 0-4, leading to O’Brien’s surprise dismissal.

If the Texans do go after Swinney, it’ll cost them — he currently ranks as the highest-paid college football coach in the nation with a salary of $9.3M per year.

Dabo Swinney has funny punishment planned for Trevor Lawrence .
Trevor Lawrence drew an uncharacteristic penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct during Saturday’s win over Miami, and the star quarterback expressed regret after the game. If he does it again, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney may make him regret it even more. © Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Clemson Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney recently cracked a joke at quarterback Trevor Lawrence's expense. Lawrence took a couple of hard hits in Clemson’s 42-17 win, one of which resulted in an ejection from a Miami player who led with his helmet.
