The Texans have promoted Amy Palcic to senior director of communications, making her the only woman in charge of an NFL media relations department.

“We don’t discriminate or give preferential treatment,” Texans owner Bob McNair said, per John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “Amy was the best person for the job.

“We promoted Amy because she was the most qualified. She’s done a great job for us. She comes from a football family.”

Palcic’s father, Bob, is a longtime college football assistant coach who also coached 12 years in the NFL. Her brother, Joe, is an assistant coach at Miami (Ohio) University. She takes over for Kevin Cooper, who left the Texans to work for the Houston Super Bowl committee.

Amy Palcic had been the director of corporate communications for the Texans. She previously worked in media relations and communications with the Browns.

    This may be the first time I’ve heard of a woman being promoted because she was the most qualified. Usually its ‘ we’re giving her an opportunity’, which makes me sick.

    Great, now the players are going have to talk about how their feeling all the time.
    “JJ, what are you thinking about right now?”
