Jack Coan of Sayville works out with Houston Texans


XFL quarterback Jack Coan recently worked out with the Houston Texans, according to reports.

But the Sayville signal caller’s eighth overall NFL tryout since signing as a free agent out of college and going through training camp with the Indianapolis Colts in August 2022 seems to be again short-lived.

Reports out of Houston Tuesday indicated that the Texans had signed former New York Jets quarterback Tim Boyle to their practice squad following his workout with the team on Tuesday. Houston’s starting quarterback C.J. Stroud is still coping with concussion symptoms and veteran Case Keenum is expected to make his secon-straight start, reported KRPC news, an NBC affiliate in Houston.

Coan, who enjoyed a solid season last spring playing with the San Antonio Brahmas, received one-day looks from three NFL teams — the Jets, Seattle and San Fransisco — last spring. His audition with the Texans was his first in-season NFL team workout of 2023.

After getting cut by the Colts in the final days of preseason in 2022, Coan scored workouts during the 2022 season with Miami, Las Vegas and Seattle.

While living in Sayville, Coan this fall has kept busy preparing for his second season with San Antonio and tutoring his younger cousin Patrick Coan, a quarterback at Sayville High School.

Coan nearly led San Antonio to the playoffs in the XFL’s comeback season, finishing with 1,403 passing yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions. He also rushed 26 times for 108 yards.

College success at Wisconsin and Notre Dame

A 2017 graduate of Sayville’ High School, Coan was impressive in college, playing three seasons for Wisconsin, and then his final season at Notre Dame in 2021.

At Wisconsin, he was a starter for two seasons, playing in two bowl games. In the 2019 season Rose Bowl, Coan and the Badgers narrowly lost to Oregon and Heisman Trophy candidate Justin Herbert, 28-27.

The former Hansen Award winner transferred to Notre Dame for his final year of eligibility and led the Irish to a Fiesta Bowl showdown with Oklahoma State in the 2021 season. Coan completed five touchdown passes and threw for a Fiesta Bowl record 509 yards in the Irish’s 37-35 loss to the Cowboys on Jan. 1, 2022.

With Notre Dame, Coan threw for more than 3,100 yards, with 25 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The team finished 11-2.
