    The original San Jose team relocated to Houston...so what? Kinnear coached the very same team before and after the move. The team retained him -- he didn't get sacked or let go or moved out by mutual consent or whatever other phrasing is used to denote parting of the ways. He's been coaching one group for 248 games.
