The Houston Texans are hiring longtime New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio as their next general manager, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

Caserio was in Houston to interview with the team earlier in the day. He was expected to fly back home to New England on Tuesday night, a source said.

Caserio, 45, has served as Patriots director of player personnel since 2008 and works alongside coach Bill Belichick as the highest-ranked staffer in the personnel department. Since Caserio earned that role, New England has won three Super Bowls.

This was the second time the Texans have requested to speak with Caserio. In 2019, after Houston fired general manager Brian Gaine, Houston requested to interview Caserio. After the Patriots filed tampering charges, Texans CEO Cal McNair said Houston would no longer pursue him.

Caserio has a relationship with Texans executive vice president of football operations Jack Easterby, who spent six seasons as the Patriots’ character coach before he was hired by Houston in 2019.

“He’s unbelievable,” Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks said of Caserio. “He’s a special dude. … Playing with him in New England for that year [2017] — just the guy that he is, there’s no ego. He’s all about helping the team in whatever he can.”
