The Texans are hiring Deon Broomfield as a defensive assistant, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Broomfield is leaving Indiana State, where he was cornerbacks coach.

The Texans previously promoted D’Anton Lynn from assistant secondary coach to secondary coach after Anthony Midget left to become the Titans’ secondary coach.

Broomfield has never coached in the NFL.

After spending some time on the Bills’ practice squad for two seasons, Broomfield began his coaching career coaching the safeties at Carthage College in 2015. He coached the cornerbacks at Western Illinois in 2016.

He went to Indiana State in 2017.

  1. If all these moves being made by Bill O’Brien are successful, I’ll be the first to say I was wrong!! I suspect I won’t be posting anything about being wrong…

  2. I think it’s Jack Easterby making the majority of these decisions and talking Bill into it. He’s had the main influence over the ” committee ” put together in Houston. He’s been flying under the radar with the media since he tried to persuade Nick Cesario to come to Houston at the party in New England. People are upset with Bill and focusing on him, but there is a trouble maker there not being mentioned and it’s Easterby.
