BRONZE MEDAL: DOM CAPERS
Most recently, Dom Capers served as the Green Bay Packers Defensive Coordinator in 2017. Before that, Capers was tasked with being the Head Coach of the new expansion franchise Texans in 2002. Given the situation, he was able to build a foundation for Houston of which his successors will take control.
The ten-year Head Coach and 23-year-old NFL coaching veteran compiled an 18-46 record as the driver of the new franchise’s bus. His best season at the helm was a 7-9 record in which the team was led by quarterback David Carr and pro bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson.
Needless to say, it was a rough go for the Cambridge, Ohio native as the head coach for the Texans in their first four years. But he did all he could with a team that had the odds stacked against them year after year. His efforts within Houston are why we award him the bronze medal of the all-time Houston Texans head coaches.
