The Houston Texans have put together an All-Star committee to help find the team's next head coach and general manager.

Hall of Fame coaches Tony Dungy and Jimmy Johnson headline the five-man group, along with former Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson, the team announced Tuesday.

R.C. Buford, the CEO of the San Antonio Spurs, and Rod Graves, the executive director of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, round out the committee.

Houston chairman and CEO Cal McNair will also rely on the search firm Korn Ferry while considering feedback from the committee. However, he will ultimately make the final call on the new hires.

"We will consider any input we receive, but at the end of the day, my mom and I will decide who will lead our football team into the future," McNair said.

Dungy and Johnson have won three combined Super Bowls as head coaches. Johnson led the Cowboys in the early '90s, while Dungy is most known for guiding the Colts from 2002 to 2008.

Andre Johnson made seven Pro Bowls with the Texans, and he holds numerous franchise receiving records.

Houston fired head coach Bill O'Brien earlier this season after an 0-4 start. O'Brien was also serving as the team's general manager, leaving a void at both positions.

Romeo Crennel has taken over on an interim basis, and the 73-year-old could become the team's full-time head coach in 2021.
