HOUSTON, Texas – The Houston Texans are not hiring a general manager for the 2019 season and will instead share these responsibilities between current Front Office members, such as Matt Bazirgan, James Liipfert, Chris Olsen and Jack Easterby, said league sources to Adam Schefter.

Houston has been without a general manager since June 7, when they fired Brian Gaine. He had held this role since January 2018 after signing a five-year contract with the team.

At the time of the dismissal of Gaine, the Texans announced that their football operations would be led by Olsen, senior vice president of football administration, while they were looking for a new general manager.

Nick Caserio, director of the New England Patriots' staff, is among GM's potential candidates. He is under contract with the Patriots. When Houston tried to interview him, New England filed allegations of falsification against the Texans, which were finally dropped last month.

Former Cleveland Browns GM Ray Farmer and San Francisco 49ers Player Vice President Martin Mayhew were among those interviewed by the Texans for the GM vacancy.

Houston finished last season 11-5 to win the AFC South, but sank against the Colts of Indianapolis during the wild round.
