    The Texans have fired defensive coordinator Richard Smith, defensive backs coach Jon Hoke and defensive line coach Jethro Franklin.

    Smith, who was under fire from fans and media this season, was the coordinator during Gary Kubiak's first three seasons.

    Kubiak is expected to conduct a search for Smith's replacement. Because the Texans have personnel to fit a 4-3 scheme as opposed to the 3-4 they played under Dom Capers, The new coordinator will be expected to play the same defense.

    This is totally unfair to Smith, I mean, just because he sucked as a coach is no reason to fire the guy, LOL.

    PS. Good Riddens!
