Other NFL teams are retooling from the Houston Texans’ house-cleaning since June of 2019.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Atlanta Falcons have hired former Texans senior vice president of football administration in their front office. Olsen will be the right-hand man to general manager Terry Fontenot.

Olsen was named interim general manager after the firing of general manager Brian Gaine on June 7, 2019. Though Olsen was the interim, he was merely a figurehead as coach Bill O’Brien had considerably more sway over the five-man general managing council that filled the void left behind after Gaine’s firing. Like Gaine, Olsen ultimately was out of the organization by January of 2020 when chairman and CEO Cal McNair named O’Brien general manager and promoted Jack Easterby to executive vice president of football operations.

The former Texans front office member was in charge of managing the Texans’ salary cap and contracts. Olsen had been a part of the Texans since 2007.
