  • Don Bosco Prep grad to be named general manager of Houston Texans

The Texans are negotiating a contract to hire Brian Gaine as their new General Manager, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Smith has taken an extended leave of absence to be with his wife, who has breast cancer.

Gaine's familiarity with Houston helped him land the job after spending 2014-16 with the team as the director of player personnel, in charge of supervising all pro player evaluations, scouting processes and transactional movement across the league.

The Texans' coaching staff will be busy this month, coaching at the Senior Bowl game.

Though the Texans cast a wide net, Gaine was the favorite from the start.

The Pearl River, N.Y., native will not have a first-round pick to work with after Smith shipped it to the Browns for the right to move up and select Deshaun Watson.

Gaine interviewed Tuesday at NRG Stadium, one day after Jimmy Raye III, the team's vice president of football operations/assistant general manager. The Cowboys blocked the Texans from interviewing exec Will McClay.

In his interview, Gaine emphasized the importance of communication, organization, high character and having strong opinions on personnel and what it will take to be successful. After five years in NY, he worked with the Cowboys from 2005-2007 and then with the Dolphins from 2008-2013. Prior to that, he was the Texans' VP of player personnel. He's interviewed for openings with the Bills, 49ers, Eagles, Bears and Jets. Teams don't have to grant permission as long as they are still playing.
