If you somehow missed the news on Saturday, Mike Vrabel is the Tennessee Titans’ newest head coach. With the help of some injuries and some shoddy personnel moves, Vrabel turned the Texans defense from a top ten unit into one of the worst defenses in the league last year. He was of course rewarded with a job promotion because he is a leader and a former Patriot and he knows how to win.
This couldn’t have gone any better for the Texans. Not only do they do away with Mike Vrabel and get him coaching a division rival, but it also brings Romeo Crennel back down from the booth and onto the sideline to lead the Texans’ defense once again.
Bill O'Brien says Romeo Crennel will add DC duties: "Yeah,he was still really involved with the defense this past year.He just had other duties helping me. He won't have as many of those duties.He'll be back being the defensive coordinator & still have the ass't head coach title— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) January 20, 2018
Crennel will be back to coaching, game planning, and calling the defense. These are all things he was phenomenal at when he held the defensive coordinator title from 2014 to 2016. No, I will never forget what he did to give the Texans a chance to beat the Patriots in the Divisional Round in 2016. Stupid [Name Redacted] and Bill O’Brien kicking field goals instead of going for it...
In conclusion: Hell, yes. The Texans have a great defensive coordinator again. I missed seeing you on the sideline, RAC.
