Houston Texans Coaching News: Bill O’Brien Hires New Special Teams Coordinator

New, comments

Maybe this is the guy who changes everything!

NFL: Oakland Raiders Training Camp
Not Larry Izzo.

Houston Texans special teams have been a disaster for so many years that it’s almost seemed like the coach in charge of that unit doesn’t matter. Whether it was Joe Marciano, Bob Ligashesky, or Larry Izzo at the helm, terrible Houston special teams play was as certain as death and taxes.

Maybe Brad Seely will be the man to change all that.

Seely spent the last three years in charge of the Raiders’ special teams. Before that, he spent a decade with the Patriots, two years with the Browns, and four years with the 49ers. At the very least, the dude is well traveled.

Here’s hoping Brad Seely is able to elevate the Texans’ special teams unit somewhere higher than the basement dwellers of the NFL they’ve cohabited with for the last several seasons.
