OB has his staff. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Although most of Texans head coach Bill O'Brien's coaching staff was known, the Texans formally announced the names of the 16 assistant coaches who will comprise O'Brien's staff this evening.

Since the Houston Texans hired Bill O'Brien to be their new head coach back on New Year's Eve, we've seen bits and pieces of news about who would be on his coaching staff, but O'Brien refrained from making any public statements about his staff.  Until now.

O'Brien officially announced the sixteen (16) new assistant coaching hires who will help comprise his first NFL staff via the Texans' website earlier this evening. From the press release:

The following were added to O’Brien’s staff: Romeo Crennel (defensive coordinator), Jim Bernhardt (Director of Football Research), John Butler (secondary), Doug Colman (assistant special teams), Paul Dunn (offensive line), Craig Fitzgerald (head strength and conditioning), George Godsey (quarterbacks), Sean Hayes (assistant strength and conditioning), Stan Hixon (wide receivers), Tim Kelly (offensive quality control), Will Lawing (defensive quality control), Charles London (running backs), Anthony Midget (assistant secondary), John Perry (tight ends), Anthony Pleasant (assistant strength and conditioning) and Mike Vrabel (linebackers).

As reported earlier, Bob Ligashesky (special teams) and Bill Kollar (defensive line) were retained from Gary Kubiak's staff.

Now that the hires are official, feel free to sound off with your thoughts on the look of the mostly new coaching staff for your Houston Texans.
