Slowik, 36, was hired as the Texans offensive coordinator in 2023 after a six-year stint with the San Francisco 49ers. Houston’s offense helped the team make a surprise playoff appearance this season. Slowik was credited with his work with rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud.
Slowik joined the 49ers under Kyle Shanahan as a defensive quality control coach in 2017 and worked his way up to passing-game coordinator in 2022. The former Texans play-caller also spent time as an analyst at Pro Football Focus.
For those unfamiliar with Bobby Slowik, he comes from the Kyle Shanahan coaching tree.
Shanahan coached with Slowik in Washington alongside 3 other playoff coaches.
