Retired quarterback Josh McCown interviewed with the Houston Texans for a second time on Friday for their head coaching job, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon will also have his second interview with Houston on Saturday, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

They're the first two known finalists for the job. McCown interviewed for the role last year while still technically an active player, but the Texans wound up hiring David Culley.

The Texans have cast a wide net in their coaching search, meeting with off-the-radar candidates such as Hines Ward, Joe Lombardi, and Gannon.

Gannon, 39, joined the Eagles in 2021 after three seasons as the Indianapolis Colts' defensive backs coach. Philadelphia's defense ranked 10th in yards allowed and 18th in scoring this season.

McCown played in the NFL from 2002-20, spending time with 12 different teams. He wrapped up his career in Houston even though he never saw game action for the Texans.

The Texans went 4-13 in 2021 and fired Culley at the end of his first season.
