The man who will succeed Wade Phillips in Houston. - Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Chris Mortensen is reporting that Romeo Crennel has decided to join Bill O'Brien's staff as the Texans' defensive coordinator. See what Texans fans think about the hire on Battle Red Blog.

It would appear Romeo Crennel's interview with Bill O'Brien went well. Chris Mortensen reports:

Crennel is committed to coach the East-West Shrine college all-star game Jan. 18 but when that task is complete, he plans to accept an offer to become O'Brien's defensive coordinator with the Houston Texans, according to league sources.

When their interview was complete, O'Brien extended an offer for the job. However, Crennel asked for more time to fulfill his commitment as the head coach of the West college all-stars in the East-West Shrine game without distraction.

Consequently, the Texans and and Crennel had no comment. Any announcement on their pending partnership would occur after the East-West game, sources said.
