More Staff Changes: Strength Coach And Head Trainer Gone

According to the Chronicle, your Houston Texans opted to part ways with Dan Riley (strength coach) and Kevin Bastin (head trainer) today via declining to offer them new contracts. While this isn't exactly on par with Richard Smith's dismissal (and the subsequent liberation/joy we all felt), it comes as a bit of a surprise. Both Riley and Bastin had been with the Texans since the franchise's inception, and their positions are generally not tied to coaching changes.
