Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans have fired OLBs coach and senior defensive assistant John Pagano on Saturday.
Pagano, 52, began his NFL coaching career with the Saints in 1996 as a defensive assistant. He spent a few years with the Colts before joining the Chargers in 2002 as a defensive assistant & quality control coach.
Pagano worked his way up to defensive coordinator in 2012 and spent five years in that role before he agreed to become the assistant HC/defense for the Raiders. After Ken Norton Jr was fired as Oakland’s defensive coordinator, Pagano was promoted to defensive coordinator for the remainder of the season.
The Texans hired him as their defensive coordinator in January of 2018.
