The Texans are done for the 2015 NFL season, and it's time to focus on building this team for 2016. Before we know it, we'll be neck deep into free agency and the 2016 NFL Draft preparations. Houston is wasting no time in addressing changes with the coaching staff, as news is surfacing that three assistant coaches have already been relieved of duty by Bill O'Brien.
The three coaches are:
-Special teams coordinator Bob Ligashesky, who remained with the Texans from the Gary Kubiak Era. That 106-yard opening kickoff return for a touchdown by Kansas City's Knile Davis was likely the final nail in his coffin after a season in which the Texans were not very good on special teams overall.
-Wide receivers coach Stan Hixon, who came to Houston with Bill O'Brien from Penn State two years ago.
-Defensive assistant Anthony Pleasant.
