Mike Devlin Set To Become Houston Texans O-Line Coach

When we do hire a new head coach, he will want to construct his own coaching staff. Some members of the current staff will likely be kept on, but Mike Devlin isn't waiting around to find out if he is one of them.

According to multiple beat reporters, Mike Devlin has accepted the position of offensive line coach with the Houston Texans, a lateral move after holding the same position with the New York Jets.

Mike had been the longest tenured Jets assistant and had one year remaining on his current contract. The offensive line that was once the strength of this team has steadily declined over the last few years, to the extent that it was quite the problem in 2014.

I'm sure the Jets will be looking to strengthen the line in the coming months with only Nick Mangold showing why he should maintain his job for 2015. D'Brickashaw Ferguson will still be the LT for salary considerations and you have to imagine that Breno Giacomini will remain at RT. This means the guard play will be the target area heading into the new season.

Mike came to the Jets in 2006 as the tight ends coach and was later promoted to the offensive line coach in 2013.

We wish Mike all the best with Houston.
