Former Lions head coach Marinelli has 'great visit' with Texans

HOUSTON -- Fired Detroit Lions coach Rob Marinelli has interviewed with the Houston Texans.

Marinelli, who was in Houston on Thursday, told KRIV-TV that "it was a great visit."

Marinelli's specialty is defense. The Texans need a defensive coordinator, a defensive line coach and a secondary coach.

Marinelli, who was reached at Bush Intercontinental Airport before flying home to Detroit, didn't indicate when the Texans said they would be in contact with him again.

Texans spokesman Tony Wiley declined comment.

The Lions went 0-16 this season.
