Texans Hire Reggie Herring To Coach Linebackers

Per John McClain’s Twitter feed, the Texans have hired Reggie Herring, the Cowboys linebackers coach, to perform the same job for them.

The Texans were originally refused permission to interview Herring, but the Cowboys relented once new defensive mastermind Rob Ryan had essentially been handed the keys. Herring coached the Texans linebackers earlier in his career, in the inaugural 2002 campaign, and in 2003 as well.

This one goes right up there with the hiring of Wade Phillips as moves that had been rumored for a solid week before they actually happened. Herring had previously coached linebackers under Phillips for the Cowboys. He will be tasked with helping Brian Cushing, DeMeco Ryans, Connor Barwin, and Darryl Sharpton, among others, as the Texans transition from the 4-3 back to the 3-4.
