Texans Hiring John Pagano As LBs Coach


Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports that the Texans are hiring former Raiders’ defensive coordinator John Pagano as their new LBs coach.

Pagano, 50, began his NFL coaching career with the Saints in 10996 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.
