Wes Welker at Senior Bowl with Texans coaching staff

The Texans made some changes to their offensive coaching staff, and they may be looking at bringing in someone coach Bill O’Brien knows well.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, former Patriots (and Chargers and Dolphins and Broncos and Rams) wide receiver Wes Welker is with the Texans coaching staff in Mobile watching Senior Bowl practices. He was with New England when O’Brien was there.

There has been no word of his hiring, but there’s certainly an opening for someone with Welker’s expertise.

When the Texans parted ways with offensive coordinator George Godsey (who worked with the team’s quarterbacks as well), they also shifted Sean Ryan from working with the team’s wide receivers to quarterbacks coach.

Welker has apparently explored coaching opportunities before, and working with a group which includes DeAndre Hopkins would be a pretty good place to start a second career.

  1. Notice how teams win SB after they part ways with Welker? The Patriots, Denver all won SB the second time around after they let him go. He is a SB curse.

    Still waiting on those rings in LA with the Rams and Chargers..

  3. When asked for a comment, Welker said, quote, “mehrp, merhrp, merhrp, merhrp.”

    Poor guy. Took too many hits. Hope he’s fine and will live a long, healthy life.

    btw…he was overthrown.

  4. It’s kinda funny how the Texans have slowly turned into the New England Junior Varsity squad. Bill O’Brien, Romeo Crennel, Mike Vrabel, Larry Izzo and now Wes Welker are all former players or coaches with the Pats. All they need is Charlie Weis to complete the set. I think it’s awesome and I hope it works out for them, in spite of McNair’s comments regarding Brady, cell phones and JJ Watt.
