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.
