    Looks like we might lose McKenzie

    Texans get OK to interview Packers’ McKenzie

    By Pete Dougherty

    The Houston Texans have the OK to interview the Packers’ Reggie McKenzie about their vacant general manager post.

    Ted Thompson, the Packers’ GM, said the Texans sent him a fax Saturday requesting permission to speak to McKenzie about the job, and Thompson granted it. McKenzie is the Packers’ director of pro personnel.

    Thompson said he didn’t know when the Texans will interview McKenzie.

    Houston is looking to replace Charley Casserly, who has resigned as GM and will leave the post June 1. However, the job probably won’t be the all-powerful position it was under Casserly, who headed all football operations and built the expansion Texans’ entire front office and team from scratch.

    New coach Gary Kubiak, hired this offseason, wields strong influence in the organization, and it appears unlikely the new GM will have more power than Kubiak, though whether he would be on an equal level or subordinate to the coach is unclear.

    After Casserly resigned earlier this month, reports from Houston said McKenzie and Denver Broncos assistant GM Rick Smith were the leading candidates for the position. Smith has an edge because he and Kubiak both worked for the Broncos the past 10 years, and Houston owner Bob McNair reportedly is placing a premium on the new GM’s ability to work with Kubiak.

    Smith interviewed with the Broncos late last week and received a strong endorsement from Kubiak.

    I was confused as to how we would lose Mike twice.
