New, comments

Less than a day after learning their current defensive line coach would be leaving, the Houston Texans have brought back a former player to fill the vacancy on the coaching staff.

Well, deciding on Paul Pasqualoni's replacement didn't take Bill O'Brien very long.

I wasn't particularly kind to Weaver during his playing career with the Texans, but that doesn't mean he won't be a fine coach. He's observed and handled some fairly salty defenses during his coaching stops with the Browns, Jets, and especially the Bills.  Plus, he has J.J. Watt.  That has to help a defensive line coach immeasurably.
