Replaces Romeo Crennel
Texans promoted their defensive line coach Anthony Weaver to their defensive coordinator, per league sources. He takes over job from Romeo Crennel. (ESPN – Adam Schefter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: It appears Crennel is at least partially being scapegoated for the Texans’ inability to hold a 24-0 lead in the Divisional Round last week. Whatever the reason, Weaver will be tasked with getting more out of this defense in his first shot at running a defense. Houston desperately needs help in the secondary, so it will be interesting to see if a neophyte defensive coordinator with a defensive line background can work some magic there.
