Texans Hope To Raid Cowboys Staff, Broncos Might Be Interested In Dennison?

ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins is reporting that Wade Phillips is lobbying for some of his defensive staff in Dallas to join him in Houston. The Texans have officially requested to interview linebackers coach Reggie Herring, and the Cowboys have denied that request.

Watkins also is speculating that the Texans could make a move on safety coach Brett Maxie, who played for Phillips when he ran the Saints defense.

The Texans also may need to look for a new offensive coordinator, as Rick Dennison is among the candidates for the Broncos vacant head coaching job. Football czar John Elway (that feels weird to type) will ask the Texans for permission to interview Dennison.

While the running game flourished under Dennison’s touch, the passing game somewhat regressed, particularly the Play Action pass and pass blocking for Matt Schaub. The Texans would probably be obligated to let Dennison pursue the opportunity, and that may be a bigger deal than the typical fan might think considering the state of the running game when Dennison took over.
