It’s a war of attrition with the Houston Texans’ coaching staff as they look for a new head coach.

As the Houston Texans are taking a seriously long time to name their new head, they have lost two of their own assistant coaches. The divisional rival Tenessee Titans have hired Houston’s defensive line coach, Bobby King, to be their inside linebackers coach.

King was with the Texans since 2017, where he started out as a linebackers coach before making the move to the defensive line this year. However, King’s efforts were not all for nothing, as the defensive line was one of the stronger position groups on the team.

The other coach the Houston Texans have lost is offensive line coach James Campen to the Carolina Panthers. Campen will continue to coach the offensive line in Charlotte. Campen also played offensive line from 1987-1993 with the Packers and Steelers.

Houston Texans coaching staff will look vastly different in 2022

Between the defensive and offensive lines, there are going to be even more struggles for both groups- that is to start, however. Campen leaving the team isn’t that big of a deal, as the offensive line was tragically bad last year. It’s hard to pinpoint if that’s a reflection of the scheme, the position coach, or the player himself.

As for King, Houston was enjoying some nice success with Charles Omenihu and company until Omenihu was traded to the San Francisco 49ers before the trade deadline. The defensive line will be hurting with the departure of King.

It would be a miracle to choose between Evan Neal and Kayvon Thibodeaux at the third overall section, but that’s wishful thinking.
