Texans hired John Pagano as a senior defensive assistant who’ll coach OLBs. Bobby King will coach ILBs.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) January 26, 2018
Pagano brings more than twenty years of NFL experience to the Texans’ staff. He is widely seen around the league as an “edge rush and blitzing guru,” and he is often credited with the developments of pass rushing terrors like Melvin Ingram and Shawne Merriman. Whether or not Pagano can continue to improve the play of Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus like Mike Vrabel did remains to be seen, but hiring John Pagano is a solid step towards making sure that the Houston pass rush remains strong.
What are your thoughts on the hire, BRB?
