New England Patriots inside linebackers coach Jerrod Mayo has a "very good chance" of becoming the next head coach of the Houston Texans according to Ian Rapoport of

Mayo played for the Patriots as a linebacker from 2008-15, earning two Pro Bowl nods and the 2008 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award in addition to winning one Super Bowl.  He joined the Pats' coaching staff in 2019, and it hasn't taken him long to become a head coaching candidate despite the fact that he has never even been a coordinator.  Mayo interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles' vacant head coaching position last offseason, and he has received a request to interview with the Denver Broncos in the near future following Denver's firing of Vic Fangio.

Texans GM Nick Caserio and the rest of the Texans front office seem determined to establish a Patriots South in Houston so it's easy to connect the dots here.  Caserio's first year as Patriots director of player personnel was when New England used the No. 10 overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft to select Mayo.
