During the David Culley introductory press conference, Nick Caserio was adamant that the next step in the process was building a staff. A potential Deshaun Watson trade was far in the future. Barely a possibility, way over the horizon. The only thing that mattered was the Texans’ coaching staff for the 2021 season. One day at a time. Brick by brick.
Mission accomplished! Although several of these hires have been known for some time, the Texans have now officially announced their 2021 coaching staff.
Lovie Smith: Associate Head Coach / Defensive Coordinator
Tim Kelly: Offensive Coordinator
Frank Ross: Special Teams Coordinator
Sean Baker: Assistant Special Teams
Danny Barrett: Running Backs
Andy Bischoff: Tight Ends
James Campen: Offensive Line
Ilir Emini: Defensive Assistant
Pep Hamilton: Passing Game Coordinator / Quarterbacks
Greg Jackson: Safeties
Bobby King: Defensive Line
Robert Kugler: Assistant Offensive Line / Offensive Assistant
Ben McDaniels: Assistant Wide Receivers / Offensive Assistant
DeNarius McGhee: Offensive Assistant
Robert Prince: Wide Receivers
Allen Smith: Assistant Defensive Line / Defensive Assistant
Miles Smith: Linebackers
Dino Vasso: Cornerbacks
Houston also announced that Romeo Crennel will be back for another season as the Senior Advisor for Football Performance.
These are the men that will lead the Texans into the 2021 NFL season, along with their head coach, the one and only David Culley, as Houston keeps telling themselves that Deshaun Watson is still their quarterback.
