It had been known from the time that Smith was hired as the head coach that Pep Hamilton would be the offensive coordinator and Frank Ross would be the special teams coordinator.
They aren’t the only holdovers from a year ago: Sean Baker (assistant special teams), Danny Barrett (running backs), Ilir Emini (defensive assistant/nickels), Ben McDaniels (wide receivers/pass game coordinator), DeNarius McGhee (offensive assistant), Miles Smith (linebackers), and Dino Vasso (cornerbacks) were all on last season’s Texans coaching staff. McDaniels gets the bump up from being an offensive assistant/assistant wide receivers a year ago.
This is the full 2022 Houston Texans coaching staff:
Lovie Smith – Head Coach
Pep Hamilton – Offensive Coordinator
