The Texans are obviously making some changes this offseason, and quarterback figures to be the main thing on the list.
But it’s not the only thing.
They started the offseason by making staff changes, firing receivers coach Stan Hixon, special teams coordinator Bob Ligashesky and defensive assistant Anthony Pleasant Monday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
The special teams breakdowns were evident Saturday, beginning with the opening kickoff which Chiefs return man Knile Davis took for a touchdown.
“It’s not very good,” O’Brien said Sunday of his special teams. “Again, I’m not going to get into all of it because I really haven’t evaluated the season as a whole. But looking at [Saturday’s] game, we have to cover kicks better, we have to return kicks better. We have to block better. . . .
“Everything’s got to get better on special teams in order for us to be where we want to be this time next year. We have to really improve on special teams.”
And that’s apparently going to begin with a new coach.
