Texans to Lose Coach Pep Hamilton to Bears?

But that is up in the air in Houston as the Texans continue their search for a new head coach to replace the dismissed David Culley, who brought Hamilton to the Texans after his good stint working as the Los Angeles Chargers quarterbacks coach.

That of course means that while Mills is his latest developing pupil, he also had a hand in the success of a budding star in L.A., the newly minted Pro Bowler, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert.
