The Houston Texans are in need of a new head coach.

Houston fired head coach/general manager Bill O'Brien earlier in the 2020 season. The Texans are now undergoing an eventful search for their next head coach.

There appear to be two emerging favorites for the job.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy appear to be the frontrunners.

"Bills’ DC Leslie Frazier and Chiefs’ OC Eric Bieniemy - whose units will square off in today’s AFC Championship Game - have begun assembling coaching staffs with the idea that they are prime candidates for the Houston Texans’ HC job, per sources," the ESPN insider reports.

Both coaches are still in the middle of their respective teams' playoff runs.

Buffalo and Kansas City are scheduled to meet in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday evening. Kickoff between the Bills and the Chiefs is set for 6:40 p.m. E.T. The AFC Championship Game will air on CBS.

The winner of the Chiefs vs. Bills game will advance to the Super Bowl, where either the Bucs or the Packers will await.
