How Former Houston Texans Quarterback David Carr Ignited the Coaching Career of Ole Miss Coach Lane Kiffin at Fresno State

Former NFL quarterback David Carr didn’t quite carve out a Hall-of-Fame career for himself, but was a legend in his own right as the first QB to suit up for the Houston Texans when the expansion franchise played its first season in 2002.

In a way, Carr helped pave the way for Houston’s success before the eventual arrival of Texans legends Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, and Andre Johnson, as the trio helped the franchise win its first playoff game in 2011. One winning season in the first nine years of existence certainly qualified as growing pains.
