The Houston Texans officially promoted quarterbacks coach George Godsey to offensive coordinator, head coach Bill O’Brien announced.
During his first year with the Texans, O’Brien did not have an offensive coordinator. He hired Godsey from New England to be the team’s quarterbacks coach, and slowly gave him more responsibilities in running the team’s offensive meetings. The process was similar to that which O’Brien himself went through in New England. O’Brien was still technically the team’s quarterbacks coach when he began calling plays, only being officially promoted to offensive coordinator in 2011.
“There wasn’t necessarily anything I wanted to see, it was more, ‘Let’s make sure we’re getting on the same page here,'” O’Brien said of promoting Godsey. “Not just the first year, but the beginning of that first year. Hadn’t coached with him in a couple years because he wasn’t at Penn State with me. Just thought he did a heck of a job last year dealing with all the things that came up during the year, and he deserves this opportunity.”
